ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.—Mazzaro's Italian Market is your one-stop-shop for gourmet goodies and imported groceries.

It's much more than a market—established in1993, Mazzaro's started as a coffee roasting company. Due to the success of that, they decided to expand the business and add a deli, bakery, meat counter, coffee bar, wine and cheese room and fresh produce—totaling 13,000 square feet of retail space. Marrazo's is also know for having one of the largest selections of fresh and dry pasta in the Tampa Bay area.

"Mazzaro's is an iconic location here in St. Petersburg. We have folks that come from all over the state," said Robert Smith, Store General Manager for Mazzaro's. "The reputation of this store is far and wide for...hard to source Italian items."

This award-winning market has been voted Best of the Bay many times over the years for their bread, pastries and other specialty items.

You can place an online order for select items here.

There are plenty of prepared meals like lasagna and sandwiches to choose from as well. Buy one to take home or head out back to the outdoor patio to enjoy your meal. You'll find plenty of statues to admire and they serve wine and non-alcoholic beverages.
