It's Escapes Month here at The Kitchn, and we want to give you ideas for things to eat and places to visit while you're away. We want to inspire your inner chef and introduce you to the best spots for food-lovers in a dozen or so major cities. These guides don't deal with restaurants; there are plenty of other guides for that. These are the spots for food-lovers and cooks: the markets, specialty cookshops, and best small-batch artisans. If you're traveling in one of these cities this summer, we hope these guides help you find something inspiring.
