Default Useful-looking food directory site

A friend just recommended Food411. It has links to all sorts of purveyors — mostly artisanal or interesting ethnic producers, including Kalustyan’s Indian and middle-eastern shop (spices, ingredients), chocolate, country hams, breads, flours, prepared foods, and much more.

Some of these shops are easy to find, some not so — and they claim to update the lists every day. They also feature recipes, links to food blogs and web sites, and other food-related material.

It is new, and I only poked around a bit, but it looks very useful, especially if you are not in New York or California and want some special ingredient, pot or pan (or an authentic tajine) or other stuff probably not available via Amazon. (Or maybe from an obscure catalog you have recycled.)

My main gripe about it is the site design, especially the sub-optimal type size. (Why would anyone have a fixed type size anyway? Hell on accessibility, especially for some of use whose eyes have inexplicably aged!) But perhaps they will see the light.
