Tantalizing Tuesday – Cotuit Fresh Market – 7/24/12

Cotuit Fresh Market…

The “COTUIT FRESH MARKET” in Cotuit, Massachusetts on Cape Cod is like taking a step back in time. Owned by dear family friends Lori and Rich Pimental this local market specializes in “everything”. In addition they stock all that is unique and different. Plus they go out of their way to carry items manufactured by local vendors! The store itself has groceries, meats, produce, dairy, liquor, and pastries, candy, novelty/gift items and makes sandwiches/subs. I must add the meats are of the highest quality and the produce are the best looking vegetables you will see anywhere. They have house made pasta salads, macaroni salads, salads, fruit salads etc… What also makes Cotuit Fresh Market very special are the small tables spread through out the store. At any given time during the day you will find people sitting around eating lunch, having coffee and pastries, reading the paper and chatting. It is such a wonderful sense of community. Speaking of which Lori and Rich are strong and active supporters of the communities they live and work in. Which certainly helps Lori and Rich and their employees to know their customers well! You walk in the door and immediately feel welcome! If you are in that general area make a point of stopping in. Grab a sandwich and snacks for a day at the beach or some steaks, ready-made salads, and a bottle of wine for dinner. You will be so glad you did and I’m sure it won’t be the last time you stop in!

PS Lori and Rich also own another store on Route 134, South Dennis, Massachusetts, Cape Cod called the “Dark Horse Deli”. If you’re in that area stop in down there!
