Where to Find Imported Specialty Foods Near Mariner Bay & Crosswinds: Tastings Gourmet Market in Annapolis

In Europe, you’ll find all manner of specialty markets — butchers, bakers, cheese shops, and green grocers. Unlike huge supermarkets here in the States, these shops all focus on a particular kind of food and develop expertise in that specific area. Stacey Adams, the owner of Annapolis’s Tastings Gourmet Market, noticed this on her travels in Italy, Greece, and France, and it inspired her to open Tastings in 2006.

Offering a combination of freshly made and imported specialty foods (think Dutch cheeses, Spanish cured meats, Italian pastas, and French baguettes), Adams’s grocery store has built a reputation for quality and service. You can even indulge in a little nibble at the store itself, which offers gourmet soups, salads, and artisanal sandwiches in its on-site cafe. Stop in to bring a little taste of Europe back to your kitchen at Mariner Bay & Crosswinds!
