Di Bruno Bros. at the Ardmore Farmers Market


One the of the things that we were sure to miss when we moved from New York was Murray's Cheese and Deli at Grand Central Station Market. So it was a tremendous delight when we discovered Di Bruno Bros. at the Ardmore Farmer's Market, which despite its name is not a conventional farmers market but an indoor collection of food vendors. Di Bruno Bros. features a wide range of cheeses, prepared foods and deli meats including the hedonistic Jamon Iberico which sells for a whopping $100/lb and a Capriole O' Banon, which is a luscious young goat cheese wrapped in chestnut leaves that have been soaked in bourbon.


On the day of our visit we picked up our favorite cheeses Comte and Pleasant Ridge and two sandwiches, one of which, the Napolean, a turkey sandwich stuffed with brie and sweet caramelized onion jam, has quickly become a favorite of ours and worth a try if you are in town.

It looks like you found a wonderful spot to buy cheese. I love Comte too. Ask if they have Napoleon the next time you go. It's amazing!

I love Murray's Cheese and Deli and hit it every time I visit NYC. We have some good cheese shops here in MN - and it takes time but isn't it wonderful when you find some place that you can count on? I know - it's not the same - but that's good also!

That looks wonderful! I wonder if they have Brin d'Amour? That's my favorite.

I would not have been able to resist the goat cheese in the grape leaves soaked in bourbon. A bit different than those we saw in Provence, but I bet they were really tasty. There would have been several of them in my bag. How lucky to live near this market Christine.

Happy Valentine's day.

Congrats on finding a new foodie resource. We just moved from NYC to the Boston area, and I know we are still working on replacing Murray's in the West Village among other places.

Wonderful. I'm just imagining that goat cheese wrapped in bourbon-soaked chestnut leaves! Mercy. And the $100 lb Iberico....let's see, I could get a super-thin half ounce slice for 8 bucks!
