Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta is still made with the finest quality grains, blended with pure mountain spring water, extruded through bronze dyes and slowly air-dried for a rustic texture that holds sauce beautifully. Every bite is a tribute to artisan Italian pasta making — the flavor, the texture, the legacy.
From Italy's #1 tomato brand, Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes or, in Italian, "Polpa," allow you to enjoy the remarkably fresh taste of perfectly sun-ripened tomatoes year-round. These finely chopped, non-GMO tomatoes have just a touch of Mediterranean Sea salt and no additives or preservatives. A patented processing method preserves the vibrant red color and naturally sweet, fresh taste. In fact, they taste so fresh, you can enjoy them straight from the can!
Considered the King of Italian rice, Carnaroli kernels are the longest and thickest of the superfino rice. This long, oval grain contains the highest concentration of starch resulting in superior texture when making a velvety risotto. Because of its thickness, the rice keeps al dente even after cooking, making it the preferred choice for top chefs. Used mostly for making risotto where the rice is the star, it is uncompromised in its superiority.

Ponti vinegar mill, custodian of a wise art that has been handed down from father to son since 1867, brings us Ponti DOCG Red Wine Vinegar Chianti. After selecting the best Chianti DOCG wines, a scrupulous and careful process of slow acetification begins, followed by a long rest time in larch and Slavonia oak vats, which allows its supreme flavor: full, intense, with a marked acidity and big personality.
Originating in Val Di Mazara, the unique characteristics of this olive oil are such to deserve the recognition of P.D.O. from the European Union. Because of its aroma — delicate and persistent — and its fruity flavor, it is a marvelous seasoning to be used fresh (raw) on vegetables, soup, salad and above all, on hot bread and bruschetta.
Francesco Illy founded illy caffè in 1933. His 1935 invention of the illetta, considered the blueprint for modern espresso machines, revolutionized coffee preparation. His innovative method of packaging, based on pressurization, enabled illy’s initial exports to Sweden and Holland during the 1940s. Francesco Illy’s method remains the standard for preserving and enhancing coffee’s freshness during transport and storage. At Market District, we offer:
- Ground Drip & Whole Bean Classico Coffees, Medium Roast — This classic roast coffee has a lingering sweetness and delicate notes of caramel, orange blossom and jasmine.
- Ground Espresso Intenso Coffee, Dark Roast — Bold roast coffee with a pleasantly robust finish and warm notes of cocoa and dried fruit.
