To think I grew up mere blocks from this place and I never knew it existed until now. A foodie friend told me about Larry’s Market in Brown Deer, Wisconsin and I made a stop there over the weekend only to stumble upon everything from imported cheeses, to applewood smoked Nueske’s beef jerky, fresh bakery, local beer, arborio rice, wine, homemade candy, gourmet mustards, olive oils, maple syrups and seasonings, elaborate gift baskets and tons of other gourmet goodies. The place is a little hidden, but worth a visit if you’re heading up north, or are looking for a block of Cheddar fit for a UW-Badger. I may never open this, but as a Madison alum, I had to have this cheese. Larry’s Brown Deer Market, 8737 N. Brown Deer Dr., 414.355.9650.

    That’s it? No photos of the prepared food case? Only one shot of the cheese case and did it really have to be the Badger? Not nearly as cute as Bruno the Bear – but then again you weren’t in Providence. The candy, the beverages, baked goods, gift baskets? Oh Liz! It’s almost as bad as you not knowing about Larry’s in the first place and having to have a Chicagoan tell you about it. Hrumph!

  4. Robert,
    Quit hatin’.
    PS..Bruno the Bear?…huh?
