In Cupramontana you'll find Mille Molliche (A Thousand Breadcrumbs) a new bakery in the village where you'll be able to get everything from Pane Comune (standard Italian white bread)
ceriale (mixed cereals - like a light wholemeal) and ceriale scuro (dark wheat bread) which is our favourite. cAlso good are the pastries and cakes, and they have pizza by the slice. You'll find Mille Molliche
in the town walls, opposite to the Tourist Information Office.
Open 07:30 - 13:00 and 16:00 - 19:00
On Monday morning there is a market in Cupramontana where you can buy meats, cheeses and vegetables fresh from the market gardens nearby. Nothing travels very far, and Italian housewives shop daily for the freshest produce.
Look carefully next to the large CARAFAC Bank, you'll find a tiny specialist cheese shop, not open all hours, but is definitely open Monday mornings for market day. You'll find the best pecorino there, both young and matured. We think the best delicatessen for prepared Italian dishes is in Moie, about 8kms from the Cantinone. It is on the main street in Moie on the left side if headed towards Jesi.
Near Jesi Ovest junction on the SS76 is a farm with their own herds of European buffalo for the best mozzarella, yoghurt and cheeses. There is a farm shop where all the produce from the farm can be purchased. Simply the best, freshest cheeses and yoghurts. The same family run the restaurant Il Casino Del Marchese at the historic family home, 200m further up the same road. Well worth a visit for the food is all sourced locally, mostly from their own farm just along the road. Visit Caseificio Piandelmedico website for more information.
Cupramontana has several smaller supermarkets called 'Si Per Te', 'Coal - Centro', 'Coal Di Alvo' etc. All are good for the basics. The Alvo/Coal supermarket has a buchery counter where the meat is always good and is our preference.
Larger supermarkets can be found by taking the SS76 towards Ancona, at the Monte Roberto exit is a large supermarket 'Famila' and in Jesi itself you can find 'Oasi'. 'Simply Market', 'coop', 'Simply' and Lidl. Just ask us for a map of Jesi and we will show you where the supermarkets are located.
There is a factory and store at Campofilone - about an hour's drive from the Cantinone B & B and Holiday Apartments. With prior booking it is possible to visit the factory, but sales are always possible from the store. Visit the Antique Pasta Company Site
The best Marche traditional meats and salamis can be bought direct from the factory at Genga. Local specialities like Soft Salami of Fabriano (ciaouscolo) and other pork products are available. You have to buy a whole salami, but it is so good, you will eat it all on your stay here, or it is a great souvineer of your holiday in Marche.
