A New Market in Town
We have a new gourmet market in downtown St. Petersburg, Messineo's, which opened in late June. I have visited twice and like it, although it isn't as extensive as Mazzaro's, the large Italian market I have mentioned in the past. But Messineo's is more convenient since it is downtown. They have a wonderful fresh meat and seafood selection. The meat is hormone and antibiotic free. The seafood is delivered six times a week. The bakery selection looks very tasty, although I haven't tried anything yet. We have tried a couple of their made-to-order sandwiches which were very good. I really hope they do well in this difficult economy. It is a nice addition to St. Petersburg.
