FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(Salem, NH) –This October 2012, Italy has never seemed so close with the grand opening of Tuscan Market, one of the largest artisanal marketplaces in New England. Located next to Tuscan Kitchen in Salem, New Hampshire, this enormous indoor marketplace boasting over 10,000 square feet will encompass the authentic sights, sounds and tastes of Italy.
With over 25 years of experience in the food industry, owner and chief food taster, Joe Faro, has finally transformed his vision to create a Tuscan villa in Southern New Hampshire into a reality. When Faro first opened the award-winning Tuscan Kitchen in November 2010, his concept was simple, combine the freshest ingredients with time-honored preparation to create a truly incredible culinary experience. Applying this same concept to his latest project, Faro’s new Tuscan Market will offer an extensive array of imported products, a large selection of specialty prepared foods, a 65-seat café, and specialty cooking classes.
Set aside a cobblestone piazza, Tuscan Market’s impressive Italian-imported décor complete with a working fountain and pergola with classic columns will make guests feel as though they are walking through an authentic Italian marketplace. Inside, guests can select from the finest ingredients imported from various regions in Italy such as Tuscany, Sicily, Puglia and Emilia Romagna, all displayed at designated stations throughout the bustling market. A one-stop shop, guests will be able to choose from an extensive assortment of specialty oils and sauces including many producers of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, fresh-sheeted pasta, imported cured meats and cheeses, Italian espresso and desserts. Just steps away, fresh, in-season produce will be available further reflecting Faro’s passion for the freshest ingredients. At the butcher, guests will find a wide selection of fresh cut meats and in true Italian fashion, guests can find the perfect wine to pair with their meal at the wine cellar which features over 3,0000 bottles of the finest imported Italian wines, all available for purchase.
While guests peruse the enormous selection of products and ingredients available for purchase, the tantalizing aromas of freshly prepared foods will be what really draws them in. From freshly baked breads and homemade pizzas and Panini, to handmade pastas and slow-cooked sauces, customers can bring home a truly authentic meal from start to finish.
Tuscan Market doesn’t end with the savory. Guests with a sweet tooth will have more than enough to select from with a dedicated dessert section boasting a wide assortment of Italian pastries and gelato being spun daily in the gelateria within the Tuscan Market café
Located within the Tuscan Market itself, visitors can take a break and relax at the Tuscan Market café, a large 65 seat café area surrounded by flat screen TV's, while enjoying coffee, espresso or grab a bite to eat. For something sweet, an authentic homemade gelato machine imported from Italy will feature over 24 different flavors of the creamiest gelato offered this side of Italy. To dine alfresco, the 50-seat patio will be open for lunch or a late afternoon snack.
Guests will be able to hone their own culinary skills at the Scuola Culinaria where Tuscan Brand’s Corporate Executive Chef Edward Payne will lead cooking demonstrations and classes. After learning some culinary tricks of the trade, students can take home all their cooking necessities from the fresh ingredients to the latest cookbooks from across the globe and featuring a section dedicated to New England’s best local chefs.
