Chocked full of specialty Italian foods that are perfect for today’s busy lifestyle. Our ready-to-eat meals are delicious, easy to store in the freezer, quick to heat and nutritious. We carry a varied selection of imported and domestic tomatoes, vinegars, extra virgin olive oils.
We stock the freshest and finest 100% extra virgin olive oil imported directly from the Le Vigne Estate in Umbria, Italy. Every year Charlie travels to Italy during the olive harvest to hand-pick the Market’s fresh olives for the press.
Since focus is on quality rather than quantity, each year’s harvest is limited, Charlie encourages pre-ordering for this year’s pressing. Our olive selection includes the Market’s signature “Roasted Olives” as well as stuffed olives. We stock all of the ingredients needed to make your own special Antipasto at home. The Market’s homemade marinara sauce is conveniently available either in a jar or made fresh daily.
