Little Italy Mercato "A Foodie's Dream"

Ok, we've said it before but it bears repeating...Little Italy's Mercato is simply the best farmer's market in town - at least for foodies. But don't take our word for it, check out this article that ran last week in the SD Union Tribune's food section ("Little Italy Farmer's Market a Foodie's Dream" )

And after your tastebuds are sufficiently aroused, head downtown and visit the TasteCheese booth! We're located on Date St. right next to Bread & Cie, on the block between Columbia & India.

Every Saturday 9am-1:30pm
Date Street-India to Columbia -North Side
Little Italy/Downtown San Diego
@ Washington Elementary (enter at Date/Union)


Fresh Burrata (Made by Gioia in El Monte, CA 2 days before the market, as fresh as it gets!)

Purple Haze (Chevre flavored with lavender & fennel pollen also from Cypress Grove)
Andante Acapella (Blended goat's milk & creme fraiche by Petaluma's Andante Dairy)
Selles Sur Cher (Perfectly ripe rounds of ashed chevre from France's Loire Valley)
Cabot Clothbound Cheddar (Best in Show @ACS in '08. This Vermont cheddar is amazing!)
Black Butte Reserve (Seasonal cheese from raw cow's milk made in the Sierra Foothills of CA) Pecorino Crotonese (Aged raw ewe's milk cheese from Sardinia, Italy)
Morbier (Classic French cheese from raw cow's milk)
Pilota (Semi-firm cheese made from blend of cow/sheep's milk. From French Pyrenees)
Cave-aged Gruyere (Swiss classic made from raw cow's milk and cave-aged for 15+ months)
BeemsterXO (Like butterscotch, this aged Dutch gouda is a customer favorite!)
Truffle Noire (Semi-firm Dutch gouda studded with black truffles)
Long Clawson Stilton (Classic English Stilton with a tangy, blue bite and a lasting finish)
Gorgonzola Dolce (Creamy and rich Italian blue with a slightly sweet finish)
