Gourmet To Go


Bucks County Côté & Co. The area’s best cheese shop, and the secret behind many an impromptu dinner party. Go ahead, pretend you whipped up the zingy tuna salad and thyme-roasted potatoes. 800 North Easton Road, Doylestown, 215-340-2683; coteandco.com.

Chester County Wegmans. It’s the rotisserie meats we like best. Or the hoagies. Or the … actually, it’s the fact that you can do dinner-party shopping and everyday errands here, from soap to sushi. 1056 East Lancaster Avenue, Downingtown, 610-518-7800; wegmans.com.

Delaware County
Swarthmore Co-op. The 70-year-old co-op has turned gourmet store. Look for expanding Thai, Indian and vegetarian selections, a high-quality butcher shop and a weekly farmer’s market. 341 Dartmouth Avenue, Swarthmore, 610-543-9805; swarthmore.coop.

Main Line Du Jour. There are more than 30 prepared foods-to-go each day. The hard part is to-go-ing: Try to pass the hand-carved roast beef without grabbing a sandwich. Haverford Square, 379 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford, 610-896-4556; dujourmarket.com.

Montgomery County
Flourtown Farmers’ Market
. This year-round indoor market is 20 vendors strong, and for Illg’s German meats and Drake’s bread pudding, we’ll deal with the limited hours. 914 Bethlehem Pike, Flourtown; 215-233-9510.

Philadelphia Di Bruno Bros.
If we weren’t already in love with the knowledgeable cheesemongers, almond-flecked green beans, charcuterie and Italian sodas, the new (pricey!) butcher shop would win us over. 1730 Chestnut Street, 215-665-9220; dibruno.com.

South Jersey Severino. A one-stop shop for party planners: Bobby Chez’s crabcakes, La Colombe coffee and Capogiro gelato are here, plus Severino’s house-made pastas and sauces. 110 Haddon Avenue, Westmont; 856-854-7666.
