Talking About Ethnic Markets on KPBS-FM's These Days

I did my monthly food hour on These Days with host Maureen Cavanaugh on Oct. 5, talking about San Diego's wonderful ethnic markets. Chef Trey Foshee of George's at the Cove joined us.

We covered a lot of territory, and there were listener requests on the These Days website asking for a list of the markets we talked about. I provided them with my list -- not comprehensive but as thorough as I could get -- and it's here below. You can also read the transcript or listen to the show on kpbs.org.

(Big thanks to Wendy Fry of KPBS for taking my list, adding links and addresses/phone numbers and sending me the xhtml code!)

Any suggestions for what we should cover next month? The obvious is Thanksgiving, but I'm open to other ideas.
