Shopping at COSITUTTI MARKETPLACE
"a carefully considered collection of artisan food products and handcrafted items . . . small, uncrowded, well curated and welcoming"
Products available through COSITUTTI MARKETPLACE are representative of authentic experiences I have had eating, traveling and shopping in Northern Italy, Tuscany and Umbria with my Italian family and friends. COSITUTTI makes every attempt to ensure the quality of our products and is committed to providing our customers artisanal products with the farmer or craftsman the guiding and working force behind what is made.
Many products are made in the "zona artigianale" of Italy and handcrafted by regional artisans. For this reason product availability is subject to production. (see Back Orders and Out of Stock Items). From time to time items may be re-packaged by the producer changing the appearance of the product. This does not effect the quality of the product. If there has been any change in the re-formulation of a product, product ingredients or materials used in the making of a product you will be notified of such.
