Since you are venturing to Massachusetts to stop at  Portugalia ( in Fall River, drive next to Sid Wainer & Son (a/k/a The Gourmet Outlet) in New Bedford (2301 Purchase Street  800-249-0447) and check out this well-known grower and distributor's newly redesigned retail outlet. It's bigger than ever and if there is a place anywhere better for a world-class selection of micro-greens and specialty vegetables I don't know where it is. (Warning though, check out the price of that little container of precious greens before you head to the cash register.) Look for special deals as you enter the cheese room - there's usually a table with great cheeses on the cheap due to close sell-by dates. Sid Wainer, where you must bring a sweater to survive visits into the cheese and vegetable/fruit rooms, has the balsamic vinegar you need as well as the one you covet.

Hours are Monday - Saturday  9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
