The Marcel's Team Shares Their Favorite Market Finds

Shopping for cheese and salami can be a very overwhelming experience.  We invite you to sample any of our cheese and meat selection before you make a purchase.  The Marcel's team participated in a tasting of each Market offering, and quickly formed favorites:

Coleen Graham, our resident turophile, says her favorite is the Green Hill from Sweet Grass Dairy in Georgia, a Camembert inspired double cream. Deb and Kathy  are crazy about the Gouda offerings from Holland's Family Cheese: Deb  favors the Gouda with Fenugreek (a seed with a nutty, maple-like flavor) while Kathy loves the Gouda with Cumin. Karen's fav is the Barely Buzzed from Beehive Creamery in Salt Lake City, a subtle, nutty cheese that is enchanced by an expresso and lavender rub. Diane, lover of all things creamy,  declared the DiStefano Burrata from Pomona, California on par with all the higher end burratas she so loves. Dana and Teri  are obsessed with the Nueske Smoked Liver Paté. Dana loves to pair that with the Cornichons (small, tart pickled gherkins) which her husband, Mike, pointed out "come with an elevator". Both Rita and  Rita's naughty dog love the West Loop Salumi's Finocchiona, a salami made using fennel pollen, fennel seeds and Chianti. The Explorateur, a French legendary triple creme, is Carolyn and Kelly's favorite. Jill loves the Olympic Provisions Saucisson d'Arlsace, a salami flavored with clove, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon.

There are many more selections to see and describe....so why don't you plan a trip into the store to have us introduce the Market to you!  

Also, remember, Marcel's is now selling wine, a nice selection of red, white, and sparkling, and a selection of ginger ales and bottled teas.  Coleen's freshly baked baguettes and demi baguettes are available every Friday  while supplies last. But fear not, her amazing breadsticks are almost always in stock.
