If you haven't had a chance yet to stop in Vito's Italian Market, you're missing out. Nestled off of Port Republic Road and next to Vito's Italian Kitchen in Harrisonburg, this treasure trove of Italian products, desserts, meal kits, and deli sandwiches feels like you're stepping into an old style deli in New York City (floor and all), but without the headache of finding parking or heavy traffic. Special thanks to owner Katharine Corgan for answering our questions and introducing us to this new gem!

Tina and Bill were kind enough to show us around and give us a sneak peak of their in progress space—opening in mid October!
