Products We're Featuring
Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon
For the last 35 years, we have perfumed the local air with the scent of Nueske’s bacon. Every morning first thing, applewood smoked goodness wafts through Kerrytown, enticing the passerby and announcing the start of a new day. It’s incredibly tasty and we are proud to consider it our house bacon. Come see what all the fuss is about.
Zingerman’s House-Made Beef Brisket
Perhaps the best-kept secret in the Deli. Choice beef brisket is roasted for hours with fresh marjoram, garlic, vinegar, sea salt and Tellicherry black pepper. Slice it thin for a rich, savory sandwich or extra-thick for the perfect centerpiece of a hearty dinner.
You may have seen these gorgeous, slender little fillets of heaven on the tinned fish shelf at the Deli. Packed upright in a beautiful red and gold labeled jar soaking in luscious extra virgin olive oil, they are hard to miss. One taste, and you’ll see that their texture, flavor and versatility is equally unforgettable.
Frozen Knish 6-pack
Once upon a time, the most beautiful queen in all the land, Anita Knish, was making handmade savory Jewish pastries. One day, she was visited by a dapper dancing sandwich man. “Who are you and why are you interrupting my baking?!” the Knish Queen of Ann Arbor exclaimed. “I am Bread Astaire and I think your Zingerman’s Knishes do it right, do it big and do it with style!” Then they fell madly in love. And that’s what happened, true story.
Our Favorite Producers
Making prosciutto in Langhirano, Italy has been a family tradition for the Tosini’s since 1905. These hams have been aged well past the required minimum 400 days and are still inspected by the three family members that run the company before they are sold. Their production is small compared to many others in the industry. Pio Tosini’s prosciutto is incredibly balanced and has a sweetness that makes you want more. Ask for a taste, and take home an ounce or two.
Hailing from Iowa, Herb & Kathy Eckhouse’s pork house produces the most amazing cured meats with exceptional quality & flavor. See what all the fuss is about –ask for a taste!
We make mozzarella from cow’s milk curd from BelGioioso every morning. The extremely fresh, milky, sublime flavor will have you spoiled from other store-bought mozzarella.
From a Single-Estate in Greece, these hand-picked organic olives are plump, sweetly briny and buttery. We also sell pitted Kalamata olives by the pound.
Made only when the cows are grazing in the lush open pastures of Ireland—you really CAN taste the difference in its big creamy flavor and softer texture.
