Tuscan Market Opens in Portsmouth, N.H.
Tuscan Brands, which operates three Tuscan Kitchen locations, opened its newest venture, Tuscan Market in Portsmouth, N.H., which features an extensive assortment of specialty oils and sauces, fresh-sheeted pasta, imported cured meats and cheeses, Italian espresso and desserts. The store also offers a variety of prepared food items and ingredients. In addition to Italian specialties, the market also will offer a variety of locally sourced produce and seafood.
The grand opening featured PBS cooking host Mary Ann Esposito signing copies of her cookbook as well as food and wine tastings.
“We really saw a need because there is no authentic Italian market on the Seacoast. Portsmouth has been amazing to us as we’ve built up our reputation through the restaurant and we sustained that growth so it was time to open up the market,” said Tuscan Brands owner Joe Faro in a local news report. “We have an incredible lineup of products, you have to go to New York City to get the same quality of authentic Italian food. We’re really looking forward to sharing our artisan Italian market vision with the people of the Seacoast.”
