If you happen to live in the Boston area and want a taste of Tuscany there's no need to leave the country. Just swing byTuscan Market, an artisan Italian marketplace located less than an hour drive north of the city.
The 10,000-square foot shop offers gourmet items from Tuscany and other Italian regions like Puglia, Sicily and Emilia-Romagna. You'll find artisan breads baked on premise, fresh pastas, a specialty butcher section, a café and some of the finest Italian products to come across the Atlantic.
To further entice foodies, Tuscan Market recently launched a La Scuola Culinaria, a series of cooking classes taught by renown Italian chefs like Mary Ann Esposito, host of the PBS show Ciao Italia.
The market is located next to Tuscan Kitchen in Salem, New Hampshire. For directions, please refer to the store's website.
