We have a Ukrainian market in Ottawa (next to the perogie shop and close to IKEA). I have a hard time shopping there because I don't recognize any of the food! Maybe I need to print pics of things I want to try and see if the store carries them.

Ask the clerk, what it is. I'd recomend trying sweet farmer cheese spread with raisins. Russian yougurt like things. I love ryazhenka. It is yougurt made from baked milk. Cold cuts are good, chocolate candies yum, smoked fish, they might have good pastries.
Next time you go just take a picture of every item, post here, I'll tellyou all about.

I was telling my neighbor about the nearby Russian stores (2, plus a produce market that stocks a lot of Russian delicacies) at Thanksgiving, she has lived here for years and never knew about them.

I find the Russian cold cuts don't taste that good (to me), I've tried the Moskva ham and some of the cheaper salamis. They also have decent cheap provolone/Swiss/Munster cheese and some Italian deli meats, there is also a German deli that has some of these of higher quality. I buy the excellent rye bread, cheeses or Jewish deli items (corned beef, pastrami) and some of the jarred vegetables and condiments. Russian mustard is hot!

There is also a kosher supermarket a block away from one of the Russian stores but their prices are too high, especially after they moved to a new store several years ago. The parking lot is always at least half full though (captive market).
