One of the greatest parts about living in Los Angeles is that you really can feel like you’re traveling without having to step foot outside of our city limits. There are so many wonderful resources for international food here, including serious supermarkets and specialty stores.

It wasn’t always so easy to find goods from around the globe, which is how many places like Artesia’s Little India and Little Saigon got started; they were originally the only resource for immigrants to procure supplies from their mother land. But the ease of transport has made it much easier to import goods, meaning they’re not only accessible but more affordable.

I love shopping at international markets not only because it allows me to take a journey with my tastebuds and experiment with new ingredients, but also because it’s cheaper. Granted it’s not necessarily organic or sustainably raised, these stores sell produce and protein for an incredibly affordable rate.

Here are some of my favoriteΒ places to shop around Los Angeles.

Couldn't be more tickled to have @jonandvinnydelivery in the neighborhood and to be able to give 'em some ink in my latest for @travelandleisure. Check it out at the link in profile when u get a sec, but Eat There Now.πŸ·πŸ•πŸπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
I like mine hot and naked. (That's with Tabasco and sans accoutrements, pull yer mind out the gutter!) πŸ˜‰πŸŽ£πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Little did I know my catch Day 1 would pretty much repeat itself the rest of the trip...huge flipping halibut and so much damn rock fish my nickname became The Rock Star. But alas, no salmon. 😀🎣 Oh well, who's ready for rock fish tacos?!? #howisummer
Morning stillness at Waterfall fishing lodge, Prince of Whales Island, Alaska. πŸŽ£πŸŒ²πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Northern light over a former salmon cannery. πŸŽ£πŸŒ…πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Alaskan smoked salmon and bagels for brekkie. Doesn't get much fresher than this, folks.
(Cold fried) chicken of the sea...the best boat snack EVER. Also, a wonderful comfort food for when you're not catching kings and all you can hook is halibut. 🎣😬

Now I see why all the salmon swim upstream to spawn...I can't blame 'em, it's gorgeous here! ✈️🌲🍴
Well hello there, Alaska. I think you and I are gonna get along JUUUUUST fine. 🌲😍✈️ #gonefishing #howisummer #travelstoke #travelbreak #traveldeeper #TLpicks #weekendwanderer @alaskaair
Super stoked to give some ink to one of my long-time favorite historical 'hoods @travelandleisure: the Arts District. Did you know Joel Bloom Square is one of the most significant intersections for street art in America? Check out where to eat, what to drink, and what to see in this continually emerging community at link in profile.βœˆοΈπŸŽ¨β˜•οΈ#LAstory #discoverLA #artsdistrictDTLA
Well, well, well. If it isn't the most delightfully refreshing post-workout sip ever! Loving this vibrant blood orange and tangerine agua fresca almost as much as running into @jlims @bstaqueria after my swim! πŸŠβ˜€οΈπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
A hotel pool where I can actually swim laps AND there are epic Art Deco accents to gaze at while doing the backstroke? Sign me up! No really...sign me up for a membership, @laathleticclub. Swear it has nothing to do with the cocktail bars by Aiden Demarest downstairs. πŸ˜‰πŸŠπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
Sweet, sweet victory! Well done, America! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ #equalityforall #lovewins #dscolor
Super inspired learning more about @turkey_home @swissotelthebosphorus over this shockingly delicious paella. Turkey has been tip top of my travel bucket list for some time, and I hope to book a trip sometime soon. Next time maybe I'll be posting pics of pide, knafeh, and lokum! πŸ˜πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·πŸ΄
I feel like I've been living in @Delta terminals as of late, which ain't such a bad thing, especially at JFK, where there's a @shakeshack! Some day I hope to get up on that Sky Lounge game, but for now this'll do JUSSSSST fine πŸ˜‰πŸ”πŸŸ
A little @vacationing music and Greece #gopro action to pump you up for your weekend! Time for sunshine and seafood! πŸŒŠβš“οΈπŸ™ŒπŸΌ
If you're like me, the second you saw those cheap flights to Tokyo you JUMPED for joy and booked immediately! To help with your planning, I did my first piece for @travelandleisure magazine on the essential dishes to try while you're there, how to pronounce them, and where to find the best. Super excited to be contributing to this incredible publication...between this and Japan, two big goals are checked! βœˆοΈπŸ‡―πŸ‡΅βœ… Check it out at the link in profile!  #tasteintravel #eeeeeats #TLpicks #eater
Honey, I'm HOOOOME! And while I was gone, @nicole_rucker (formerly of @GjustaBakery) moved into the 'hood @cofaxcoffee. These donuts, like WHOA!!! Girl, stay a while, will ya? β˜•οΈπŸ©πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #eeeeeats #dineLA #eater #fravorites
πŸ“· @borderfreetravels spending my last two winters in Colombia and Oaxaca, a month each, I highly recommend going to both places, especially for the incredible food but mostly for the people. Some of the best adventures take place way off the beaten path. Cheers to finding some place that makes you feel that magic… Thanks for following along on my adventures! #BFTswap

    The number of companies and individual freelance designers on the internet are growing every day, providing more and more competition, and ultimately it brings down the cost.
