Anywhere to get good salumi closer to downtown than Eataly?

I'd like to pick up some nice salumi tomorrow for the Italy/England World Cup match on Saturday. I work at World Financial Center and Eataly is a good half hour in the wrong direction for me. I assume that there is nothing good in the Financial District, but how about Tribeca? Soho? Anywhere below 14th on the West side..? I want some really good stuff -- fatty sopressata, very good aged parm cheese, nice olives, etc. Any ideas? Forza Azzurri!!

      Murray's is a great option. And right next door to Faicco's.

        Di Palo's, Agata & Valentina on University, even Whole Foods has a nice selection. Dean & DeLuca. A little further north, Buon Italia in the Chelsea Market.

        And if you don't mind Spanish stuff - Despana on Broome.

        Realized you're looking for west side, but...

        Formaggio Essex in the Essex St. Market, Union Market on Houston and Avenue A

      2. The best sopressata is at Faiccos on Bleecker. Get the spicy. A pound is about $15

            Love to buy prosciutty there as well

          1. Another vote for Di Palo's. Allow time for a fun, relaxed experience that might include waiting in line.

            There's also Il Buco Alimentari, which has good stuff but I found annoying on my last visit. (I was charged more than the price posted, no apology, just "I guess that price wasn't updated.")
