I love to shop. I love food. What could be better for a blogger like me than to shop for food, and wine, and booze, and gadgets?

St. Louis is peppered with lovely gourmet markets and specialty stores of all kinds. You can find deluxe ingredients, luxury goods, and professional-grade services that will transform your meals, your parties, and your kitchen with the swipe of a credit — or debit — card.

The next time you’re out and about and want (need!) something special, sweep in to one of these shops for a coveted item and Eat It, St. Louis!
