Kalamazoo Olive Company supplies a venerable variety of gourmet goods ranging from luxuriously smooth olive oils to tangy tapenades and gastronome-gratifying dips. As you jauntily peruse the open storefront, stop at each tasting station to sample one of Kalamazoo’s opulent oils. A mildly fruity yet peppery Chilean arbequina olive oil ($14.95 for a 375 ml bottle) tastes heavenly atop fresh, warm bread, while the basil-infused Tunisian chemlali olive oil ($15.95 for a 375 ml bottle) adds a nice zip to homemade hummus and pasta dishes. The roasted garlic oil ($15.95 for 375 ml) will help you determine which guests at your next dinner party are secretly vampire gourmands, and the small-batch pressed walnut olive oil ($12.95 for 200 ml) adds a nutty decadence to the dull sanity of everyday dishes. Decadent dips include the sesame-honey-mustard dip, the champagne-garlic-mustard dip, and the roasted-pineapple-and-habanero dip (all $9.95), the latter of which packs the sweet-and-spicy balance of a mama's-boy punk rocker. Otherwise, splash a taste of tart with a traditional 18-year aged balsamic vinegar ($19.95 for 375 ml) or attempt one of the fruit-fused white balsamic varieties such as peach, coconut, or pineapple (all $11.95 for 375 ml). Pasta sauces and cheese balls are also available to try on a daily basis.

The store’s well-trained staff can analyze your gait and fit you with the perfect pair of boots, such as the Brooks F3 Sprint, a 7.3 oz. spike-studded foot glove that tears up the track like a rogue railroader ($15). Stylize your workout by wearing a black Nike dri-fit shirt, whose sleek anti-sweat fabric doubles as a UV shield ($35), coupled with a pair of stretch-woven, hip-holstered Zoot shorts to make your thighs feel important ($24).
Though the colorfully packaged products at International Food Mart may seem like those of any neighborhood grocery, a simple perusal of their labels reveal a much wider world beyond its shelves. The store carries oils and coffees from Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, along with a selection of fresh produce, meats, and fish that've flown themselves across the ocean from far-away lands. Many ingredients find their way into the staff's Middle Eastern and Vietnamese carryout meals, such as falafel wraps, lo mein noodle dishes, and pork egg rolls.
