Brothers Marketplace Weston

Brothers Marketplace in Weston is part of Roche Bros new approach to creating a smaller store with a focus on local produce and perishables while still being a traditional local market.

Brothers Marketplace is located in the middle of Weston, actually on Center Street. They have a small outside seating area. They were hosting a Grand Re-opening media event today and will hold a Holiday Tasting event on Saturday, Nov 12 11:00 AM-4:00 PM. There will be samplings available and a selection of holiday food.

Breakfast selection and both coffee and espresso are available. There was a nicely decorated seating area available for us.

Pastries galore was available. If it isn't made in house, then they are using the highest quality items that are available. Bagels come from NY City, and the cannelloni shells are filled in-house.

There were Pecan Rolls on the counter for customers to sample, and I tried one, It was delicious, so I went back for another sample.

The produce section was neatly laid out and loose produce was available in bins. The also have precut veggies and on the far left, loose salads. I really liked that, you can buy exactly what you need, so nothing is going to the spoils.

Another thing that I really liked was that they had items cut in half and left out as display items. This is a Pomellos that I have never heard of before but it looks very nice and even better when cut in half. If you want local cheese, they have a display case dedicated to cheeses from New England.

Lots of really good-looking prepared food and the BIG sandwiches looked delectable.

The fish came from a small local purveyor and looked extremely fresh. The meat comes from Niman Ranch and look at the marbling on the Ribeye!

Perfectly cooked and very beefy tenderloin was brought out for sampling with some scallops that are delivered fresh every day.

They have a partnership with Amir's Natural Food from Dorchester and they have a number of Middle Eastern items available. The Fudge to the right just caught my eye, what a neat packaging.

More food was brought out for us to taste. The Butternut Squash with Baby Spinach, next to the Croissants, was really delicious and I really don't like butternut squash but this I will eat. Next to it was a delightful Arugula Salad with Fennel and shaved Parmesan cheese. The Sushi was excellent, especially for a supermarket sushi. Big pieces of fish in the Maki Rolls.

Cool coffee cups are available at the coffee station. Time to make the Mozzarella and we were invited to watch. The curds are cut up and put into a pan with water and mixed.

Hot water is added and then they start to homologise into strings. After everything comes together Mozzarella Balls are formed and put into ice water. This was pretty cool to watch.

Disclosure: I was invited as a media guest but all opinions are my own
