Zingerman's is a popular mini-chain of gourmet shops and delis in the Ann Arbor, Michigan, area. Lucky for the rest of the country, they sell their hugely extensive inventory of cheese, charcuterie, spices, nuts, chocolates, olives oils and other wonderful ingredients on their witty and charmingly illustrated website.
What's great: They have items you'll have never heard of and suddenly, you have to have them. Plus things that are often hard-to-find, all in one location.
What to know: Obviously sensitive to what it costs to ship some of their goods, they have special items that each ship for a flat rate, usually $8.99.
