Really a super little neighborhood store. I love their unique beverages. I had a ginger beer last night that was unlike anything I've ever drank before. I always find something new and delicious in there. Highly recommend!

Market Gourmet has the best ciabatta bread in the area, bar none. (That includes the new Whole Foods.) Be sure to check out their bread selection. They are the only place around with authentic prosciutto de parma and an array of great cheeses. I love their fresh mozzarella cheese. They have an outstanding selection of olive oils and balsamics. My favorite olive oil is Frantoia and they are the only ones nearby that carry it. (When I have found it elsewhere, Market Gourmet's prices are the same or less.) I also love the Vincotto Fig vinegar. It is amazing with everything! They carry an outstanding array of gourmet chocolates, desserts and cookies. I also buy my Illy coffee from them. (Same as supermarket prices.) Please support this little gem in our neighborhood! In this economy, we all need to do what we can to keep the little guys in business! At least commit to purchasing your daily bread here...you won't be disappointed!

Market Gourmet has the best ciabbatta bread, bar none. That includes the new Whole Foods store. I regularly buy my olive oils, balsamics, coffees, proscuitto de parma, chocolates, truffle oils and cheeses there. Their prices are competitive or lower than supermarket prices offering the same fare.
They also have a great selection of desserts including tiramisu, English toffee cake and many delectable ice creams. It is a one stop shop for picnics. They have ready-made sandwiches, cheese and fruit trays, soups and all sorts of cookies and pastries.
If you haven't tried it, you should. If you are a customer, re-commit to regular purchasing. We all need to do what we can to keep gems like this in business. They offer such an amazing international fare right here in our neighborhood...let's keep them around!
(Don't be afraid to ask the owners for shopping advice -Lauren and Scott---they are happy to help. If you don't see what you need, just tell them. They are great for creative recipe advice, too.) One or both of the owners are there every day...take advantage of that fact and let them know what you need/what you would like to see them carry. Bon appetito!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The nicest people I've ever met!!!‎ - HYUN‎ - Today
I spent the entire morning looking for a place to buy 10 honey sticks for a bridal shower/tea party on Saturday, and to my dismay, I can't find a single place in the west side! I just happened to call this place and Joe answered the phone. He said he didn't have any at the moment but he can get 5 from his own kitchen and get someone to get 5 for me when he/she goes to the farmers market on Thursday night in PASADENA. Regardless of whether he can get this person to really do it or not, his intentions are just mind-blowing. This is what I call a NICE person and GREAT customer service. I boycott everything from Walmart to meat to Japanese products (protesting their whaling practices) etc but when I find a place like this, I'm hooked and want to tell everyone about it! Thanks, JOE!!

This is the place to go if you love to cook and eat and if you love to cook with and eat food from all over the world. Amazing choices. Cheese, pasta, olive oil, coffee, condiments, hot sauce, vinegar, olives, sausage, chocolates, crackers...you name it. They have a nice selection of fresh sandwiches, salads, sushi and fresh bread and usually soup for lunch. Plus kitchen gift items. Can be a little pricey but first rate stuff. As the sign says, the shop is bigger than it looks, on Abbot Kinney south of Venice Blvd.

I heard about Market Gourmet from a friend and decided to check it out. Boy, was I pleased! The store offers a delicious cheese selection, fine chocolates, etc. They have a variety of hard to find items. I bought many of my Christmas gifts here and I am now a regular customer. If you value quality, check out Market Gourmet. I love it!
