Welcome to Old World Market

Great cheeses, cured meats, wines, craft beers, and specialty foods are all found in our inviting shop on Courthouse Square in downtown Valpo. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is always happy to share a sample of the hand-cut cheeses, recommend a wine, or strike up a conversation while slicing your order of prosciutto di Parma. Be sure to try some of the antipasti and pick up a fresh baked sourdough baguette!

For home cooks, Old World Market has those hard to find ingredients such as fine oils, vinegars, pastas, cocoa powders and more. Looking for a gift? Gift baskets or a Wine & Cheese Club membership are great choices!  Free wine tastings, classes, and other events are also held throughout the year.

In addition to our reputation as the best cheese shop this side of Chicago, the Market is also known for excellent boutique wines and craft beers.  Our curated collection of wines and beers (most of which are under $20) is the perfect size for browsing- great variety without an overwhelming quantity of choices. Every bottle on the shelves is personally selected by the staff, and they give confident recommendations based on your personal preferences.

This is a place with an appreciation for artisan quality associated with the Old World, whether it comes from across the globe or just down the street! Come take a look, and see why Old World Market is the premier cheese and specialty food shop in Northwest Indiana.
