Snapshot: Italian Market - Dover, DE

Italian Market
Owner: unknown
Opened: 2019
Cooperative: none
 3150 N Dupont Hwy, Dover, DE
Photographed: January 2020
Well, we finished off New Jersey with an Italian grocery store so it's only fitting that we start Delaware with one, too! This is an interesting one for sure, in a former gas station-mini mart combination, and while the pumps have been removed the canopy remains, just painted green. I am amused by the hand-painted "ITALIAN MARKET" on the side of the building, but hey, if it works, it works. The place had just opened up when I snapped this photo back in January 2020, and it looks like the core business of this 2900 square foot store is the sandwiches and salads from the deli. We're right by the Dover Speedway here, by the way, and the former Dover ACME (which is now a Hobby Lobby) is just south on Dupont Hwy. There's also a Redner's a little over a mile north and a Safeway, LIDL, and ALDI about three miles south. Tomorrow, we're heading into Milford about 20 miles south for a store tour over on The Market Report!
