Asian: There are a lot of small Asian and Southeast Asian stores sprinkled throughout the Boston and Providence area. The big supermarkets are Super 88s; if you google that name, you'll find some options. Chinatown also has a bunch of stores. For fresh produce, best to hunt down where in the outskirts and suburbs the locals go. (If you want Providence options for "where the locals go," let me know. )
Spices: There's a Penzey's in Arlington, and they'll have just about everything you'd need to outfit a basic spice pantry -- and more.

Here are several that I know of:
Stoddards. Knife specialty store. sadly, no longer in Boston proper but not far away either.
China Fair. Two locations, one in Cambridge (Porter Square) the other in Needham. A large selection of kitchenware, some but not most, for professional kitchens. Good prices.
Eastern Bakers. This place serves the trade but will sell retail.
there are also places in Chinatown, but I can't remember names. Worth wandering through the neighborhood to browse and eat!
And of course there are the usual retail places such as Williams-Sonoma and Sur la Table. W-S has a discount outlet at the Wrentham Outlets, south of Boston.

They also had selection of knifes, they sometimes post special offers through their twitter account.
For spices, Christina's Spice Shop at Inman square.

Christina's spice shop is very good, but more expensive than the Indian markets.
I have not been yet, but have heard that H-Mart in Burlington is worth the trip.
