The Kitchen Store Right Next Door
Mazzaro’s Italian Market is a St. Pete institution, and if it wasn’t already a culinary heaven, they’ve added more with the addition of Casa di Mazzaro, a kitchen and gift store that’s just on the other side of the parking lot from the market. The new shop opened September 3, and features contemporary cooking utensils, beautifully painted Italian dinnerware, Spanish and French cookware, and even a tea bar with a wide variety of loose-leaf teas.
“We ran out of room at Mazzaro’s, so decided to open a storefront that would provide our customers with everything they need to prepare meals and host dinner parties with unique housewares from around the world,” says Cindy Richmond, who runs the shop.
Her brother Kurt says that the new kitchen store is a perfect complement to the existing market and that they’ll continue to expand selection – including carrying goods from more local craftspeople – as the business grows.
