Papa’s Food Market, Frank & Louie’s Italian Specialties, Bacchetti Brothers and Touch of Italy: Best Delicatessen

EDITORS’ PICK, UPSTATE
There’s more to Papa’s Food Market than fresh-sliced luncheon meats at the counter. There are meats handcut by owner Ralph Papa himself, homemade sauces and meatballs, fresh produce, Italian- label groceries, all the staples and Tastykakes. Any deli worth the name must sell Tastykakes. 1910 W. Sixth St., Wilmington, 656-8886

EDITORS’ PICK, DOWNSTATE
The imported meats and
cheeses hang from the ceiling of Frank and Louie Bascio’s Frank & Louie’s Italian Specialties, taking center stage in a great little shop that is packed with vinegars and oils, macaroni, prepared foods and sweet treats. It reminds us of their original store in Millville. 58 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-5777
