olive grove mkts, coorparoo mkts, 296-300 old cleveland rd, coorparoo

veronica mastromichele is the owner of olive grove mkts deli @ the new coorparoo mkts......15 years experience in the industry has led veronica to this new venture & her experience is apparent when you visit her deli.  a huge multi-cultural meat counter covering nationalities such as germany, dutch, italian, french, spanish, hungarian & croatian.....choose what you want & have it freshly sliced to your thickness liking.  the cheese range is also extensive & unique - manchego infused w black olives! 

veronica was born in australia to italian immigrant parents & watched her father be involved in the brisbane fruit & veg markets (he worked for some 50yrs in the industry) so her background, along with her brothers, richard & max who run the organic fruit & veg next to her deli @ the coorparoo mkts is extremely strong.....she has a lot of passion for her industry.

she marinades her own antipasti & olives & often asks me to source unique products for her customers....she was the only retail customer i called when visco took delivery of fresh white truffles from alba - because i believed she could sell them!

they also sell daily made paninis, filled cannoli's & the delicious sfogliatelle - baked fine layers of pastry filled w ricotta & lemon good. 

the little pistachio chocolate & fig drops pictured below are seriously amazing...i could become addicted!....get me away from them kind of addicted!!!!

note - the mkts open thurs-sat 7am-6pm & sun 7am-3pm
