Extra sharp provolone in Montgomery county

I never find sliced provolone that is sharp enough for me. I just bought some at Stan's deli In the Flourtown farmers market. Went to pick up some of their very good tuna salad for lunch and, when I asked for sharp provolone, I was asked if I wanted extra sharp. My goodness. It is wonderful!

  1. Try DiBrunno's at the Ardmore Market?

    1. Carlino's in Ardmore, they had two last time in.

        Thanks Main and Deluca. I like DiBruno and Carlino's. I was just surprised to find good cheese so close to home. "Montgomery County" was misleading.

      2. Ardmore is the cheese capitol of Montgomery County !

        1. If you're out closer to the "frontier," try the cheese shop in Skippack.

            Thanks. I'm often in Skippack.

          2. Sam's Italian Market on West Moreland in Willow Grove, has the sharpest slicing provolone that I've ever had

                The one other place in Mont Co that has amazing sharp provolone, is Goomba's Pizza in Colmar. They age it themselves. These folks are originally from South Philly, make a great hoagie and really use good product overall. Their sharp provolone is exceptional.

                  cgarner and patti, Thanks! I was at Sam's for the first time Saturday, picking up a cake (which was very good). What a neat place. Will be back, so I'll try their sharp provolone. Btw, my husband picked up a ricotta pie and pizza ripena for Easter there. Not bad. I was too lazy to do the pie this year, and haven't had the pizza since my mother made it.

                  Cwdonald, will look up Goomba's. Thanks.

                    Ricotta pie? Guess who's going to Sam's this weekend!

                    BTW, just to avoid any confusion, this is Sam's Italian Market, not Sam's Club. They are both located on the same road, albeit on opposite side, roughly a half mile from each other.
