Cheese cubes, cabanossi, crackers, a couple of dips and some packets of chips emptied into plastic bowls — it was the food table spread at many the Aussie gathering when we were younger. Nowadays, events of all kinds — weddings, backyard barbecues, baby showers and even kids parties — opt for a more elegant snack setup: the grazing table. And if you're ready to wade into the waters of designing your very own aesthetically pleasing grazing table, board or platter for an upcoming do, then Panetta Mercato is where to shop.
The Marrickville Metro store, which is primarily a grocer, has a pretty epic deli setup that is chockers with imported cheeses, cured meats, olives, sundried tomatoes and more. Not confident enough to build your own yet? You can order a ready-made platter from the deli instead. Elsewhere in the store, you'll find meat, gelato, pantry staples, dips and more.
Panetta Mercato has also outposts in Leichhardt, Baulkham Hills, Kirrawee and Macquarie Centre. Plus, it has set boxes packed with fresh produce and other essentials starting from just $15 available for delivery from its website.
