The Milk Pail Market

On my way home from work today, I decided to stop by the Milk Pail Market, an open-air European market tucked away in the San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View. This small market has an amazing selection of cheeses (300+ kinds), a large variety of bulk grains, and craft-baked Acme bread delivered twice daily. They also have bins and bins of high quality fresh fruits and vegetables that are quite cheap (at least by Bay Area standards). Today, I discovered that they also carry taramosalata, a Greek-style spread made from roe. It's absolutely fantastic on pita bread and one of my favorite spreads. Caviar dreams at sardine prices!
