MAZZARO'S Italian Market St.Petersburg, Florida
A food lovers Paradise
On Thursday I went to go look at a Clients condo in St. Pete
and after doing so I took a trip to Mazzaro's Italian Market

This is a few of the Olive oils they have

This is a few of the different spices they carry

This is in the CHEESE department

This is a small fraction of the wines they have

Italian brick oven breads are made daily on the premises.
All the crusty breads that you grew up on!
Breads Italian, Semolina, Tuscan, Ciabatta, Pugliese, Focaccia, Rosemary Plus many more are available daily, with other flavors rotating daily.

This is a Sicilian Ring of Bread in a bag

This is fresh Italian cookies

They also make a variety of Cakes and Pastries such as: Italian Rum Cakes, Tiramisu, Cannolis, Sfogliatelle, and many other tempting desserts.
They have over 30 varieties of Italian Cookies, including our home made Biscotti.
Gelato made daily using only the finest ingredients.

on Saturdays they have live music out here.

what's left of my Eclair before I forgot to take a picture.
I ate this with my eyes closed it was the BEST eclair I have ever had!

the freshly made pasta

Mazzaro’s carries an unbelievable selection of fresh, frozen, and dried pastas with hundreds of varieties to choose from.
Everyday they carefully and lovingly mix the dough with eggs and flour and prepare fresh pastas by hand. Each piece has a delicate texture, a rich flavor and a freshness that cannot be duplicated unless you choose to make your own at home.
While there are special pastas that are only available on particular days, here are the selections that you will find everyday; Angel Hair, Fettuccini, Linguini, Ravioli with meat, spinach & ricotta or cheese filling.

another cheese picture they have a major cheese deli this is just a little section

this is the deli they have a huge selection of food you can get hot or cold items

I hope one day you will all get to enjoy the Mazzaro's experience in person

Mangiare Mangiare!

Takes me back to my times spent in Italy. The Italians know how to enjoy life. It's a full day just eating a meal there, they have so many courses.
Beautiful and lovely Post Gina.

Now, what do you think two people from Rome, NY, with a last name of Loreto, are dreaming about right now? I am continually amazed on each trip to your wonderful blog. So I'm thinking, maybe we should move to St. Pete instead of Winter Park...might have to adjust that dream.

Great post! Mazarro's is one of the things that keeps me in St. Pete, that's for sure. You need to go on a Saturday morning when there's a tenor singing Bel Canto and Neapolitan songs as he walks around the store. It's like going back to the Amalfi Coast!

Three cheers for Mazzaro's!! My kind of store. I grew up in an Italian community in New Jersey so this really makes me homesick! Thanks Gina.
