Got lots of experimental things at the Asian market yesterday -- stuff for sushi, miso, Japanese bread crumbs, and a milk tea kit (mostly to get the fat straws). Things are much cheaper at the Asian market than at the grocery store, like the spices and tofu (89 cents, vs. $2!). Couldn't find bonito flakes though, which you use to make dashi.

The day before, I also went to the West Side Market, and got sour cream, yogurt, potatoes, 5 pounds of yams (my favorite!), and raspberries that pretty much turned out to be rotten. Had gyros there that were very good, I'd never had them before.
