Bova in Chalfont

Meant to post this a bit sooner. Stopped by Bova for some smoked mozzarella, jarred sauces and frozen pizza dough and the place smelled of chocolate from all the holiday Italian desserts they have to offer right now.
They had nice gift baskets, one had a huge box grater and everything to make a wonderful meal except the bread. I think they are selling that now too.
Not much time left though, they close at noon on saturday and early on Christmas Eve. As always it was a delightful experience shopping there. I saw a sturdy mortal and pestle I wanted and a nice pizza pan. Uncle rang me up and I even got a Bova calendar to remind me all year of what a treasure this place is.

          If anyone is interested, there is another thread with other restaurant supply businesses that welcome retail customers.
