The centerpiece of our store is our excellent cheese selection. Based on years of experience and yes, many pounds of consumption, we have built a formidable reputation as the best cheese shop in the region. Sampling is always encouraged, and our knowledgeable staff can easily guide you to the cheeses best suited to your tastes. Regardless of your particular wine choice, we have the experience to find that perfect cheese to accompany it. When the right cheese is paired with the right wine or beer, the sum can be profoundly greater than the parts! We feature local artisan cheeses based on their availability and the season. We also fresh hand-cut the classics- such as Blue Stilton, Maytag, Rocquefort; Irish and aged cheddars; parmesiano reggiano, pecorino romano, morbier, raclette, delice, cambozola, and much, much more!
We take pride in the fact that every wine on our shelves is personally selected by our staff, and we can give confident recommendations from personal experience with your preferences in mind. Our curated selection of about 200 wines is the perfect size for browsing. We highlight most every wine region and varietal without overwhelming you with choices. Most of our wines are under $20, and we always respect your price range when recommending wines. You’re sure to find a new favorite! Whether just looking or searching for a special bottle, we love to talk wine with our customers. Our wines reflect our affinity for vineyards, blends, and varietals beyond the typical liquor store selections. We do represent some of the most respected wineries of both the old and new world, but we also champion many unsung wines and wineries. We offer a 10% discount on any 12 bottle purchase. On Wednesdays, this discount is extended to any 6 bottle purchase. Looking for a particular wine? We can special order and have most wines here within a week.
Our beer selection is a tightly curated collection of domestic and imported bottles that are either hard to find, new to the region, or in limited. Even the biggest beer geeks will find something new and interesting, as our inventory is constantly rotating. See our current list of beers on our beer menus page.
At OWM, we search the world to find the finest charcuterie, including Prosciutto di Parma, French Madrange ham, and German Black Forest ham and speck. Fine cured salami, chorizo, caviar, pate, and smoked salmon are also regularly featured. Whenever possible, we also feature more locally produced products that are created in the Old World traditions.
Our mission is to supply adventurous home cooks in our area with all of the crucial, hard to find ingredients you simply can’t find in a grocery store outside of a big city! We’ve saved many desperate cooks on a deadline by providing items such as preserved lemons, saffron, pine nuts, ras al hanout (not to mention quality meats and cheeses not to be found elsewhere). And if we don’t carry it, we’ll do our best to help you find it.
We make gift giving and entertaining easy! Our gift baskets are pre-made or custom built for you, depending on your tastes and budget. Give us a call or stop by the store to get started. For custom baskets, we typically need 24 hours to arrange and wrap the basket, but if you are in a hurry we can sometimes put something together in about an hour!
Old World Market is Home of Northwest Indiana’s Charcuterie Box and Grazing Table. We make entertaining easy. Order a custom box of our fine cheeses, charcuterie and antipasti for your next event. We recommend placing your order 48 hours in advance to ensure availability, but we will always do our best to meet shorter timelines. Please note during the busy holidays we ask for 7 days notice.
