DeCosmo Italian Market in Pinellas Park – Meat, Cheese, Wine…

Published on 11/20/23: With holiday meal shopping around the corner, I bring you highly acclaimed DeCosmo Italian Market!

Who’s familiar? If not, I hope you’ll consider adding this locally owned grocery, deli, and bakery to your list! “Welcoming every guest as a new member of our family.” So many delicious items and you’ll likely be greeted by one of the smiling owners.

Colt and I finally made it to DeCosmo! With imported Italian goods, fresh pastas and produce, many cheeses, bakery, prepared meals, wine, coffee, and easy parking right out front, we saw firsthand why DeCosmo is a go-to spot for so many foodies.

Always a good sign when you’re greeted by the family of owners. Dad, brothers, grandson, and others in our case. I asked the nice cashier “is the entire family always here?” “Yep, quite often. It’s their family market after-all.”

DeCosmo Italian Market is Family Owned

“Our company is an Italian-American family owned grocery store and deli. We are passionate about food, our heritage, and an authentic experience for our guests. Our mission is to provide a culinary adventure through the lens of the Italian diaspora through family recipes, celebrated traditions, and welcoming every guest as a new member of our family.”

Very Helpful Family and Team at Decosmo

Paul DeCosmo explained the cheeses to me and Steven explained the deli area. Based on an article I read, the meatball subs are excellent! Those are definitely our next purchase. Well, after I finish my 3 different blue cheeses and Colt finishes his Chocolate Fudge Cake + eclair. If you’ve been following stories, you know I love me some blue cheese.

Upon pulling into DeCosmo’s parking lot, we spotted Churned Ice Cream owners exiting with their goods. If you know Churned, you know Ray has a lifelong culinary background. “This is our favorite local grocery and deli”. Well, there you have it!
