Messineo's Gourmet Market - downtown St Petersburg, FL

I was really happy when I heard that downtown St Petersburg was getting a small gourmet market. The market is located in the space previously occupied by the Atlanta Bread Company. The space is small, and while they do offer a small choice of groceries, they do have a well thought out selection and it is a nice alternative to going to Publix. Some of the things they offer are meat, seafood, poultry, fresh vegetables, a bakery, dairy, cheese, a deli, and hot soup, to name just a few. I like to stop over in the morning and grab a coffee and a bakery item to go, or for lunch a hot soup is a good take-out item. For those who want to stay and enjoy their food immediately, Messineo's offers sidewalk seating outside, with umbrella covered tables for those hot days. About the only thing they are missing and what I would love to see is a small selection of wine and beer, so that one could get it all under one roof without any extra stops. However, it is still convenient for the neighborhood and it only adds a plus to downtown.

We do have wine arriving this weekend! It took a bit longer than expected to get the red tape cleared with the state to get our wine/beer license. Come to our Holiday Tasting Wednesday November 17th to sample our holiday offerings and sample some wine.
