ZZest Market. Where it all started.
Before we were even called “ZZest,” we opened a tiny kiosk space at a local grocery store, Rochester Produce. First with 2 shelves, then with 6. The next step, six months later, was to open our own little cheese and specialty shop, on a corner no less. Our focus has always been on small batch artisan and quality ingredients. We are a voice for the small independent producers, the ones that can’t stock the shelves of big box stores. You can read more about our story right here.
Face it. We have the best stuff! A perfect gift for the hard to by for, that person who has everything, or for the one who just needs to be spoiled. The ZZest Market staff are pros at picking out gifts and boxing them up, and adding a bow! They’re ready to go right now! Just come on in and grab it.
Gift Boxes: small, medium or large! Want something custom? We can do that! Call or email, let’s chat!
Entertaining…whether it’s a breeze for you or a pain in the neck, we’ve got your back. Let the pros at ZZest Market ponder and pair the perfect cheese and/or charcuterie board. You needn’t worry your pretty head.
Just stop by the market and grab a READY MADE CHEESE BOARD! $40 value, on sale for the season – $32.95
3. ZZest Market
100 1st Ave SW #203
Rochester, MN 55902
Mon – Fri 10am to 6pm
(Occasionally we’re open on Saturday, we’ll post that on Facebook. So that’s another reason to follow us!)
Here’s the deal. The easiest way to get to ZZest Market or Lunch Counter is like this: If you’re standing on 1st Ave SW on the corner of the Peace Plaza, look at PRIMP. Just to the right is a door marked “1st Ave Suites.” Go in. Take the elevator or the stairs up one flight. You have ARRIVED.
Mon-Fri the parking meters on 1st Ave are 30 minutes. Which means, honestly, the cars move in and out a lot. You’ll get a spot. Trust me, I have plenty of tickets trying to stay beyond my 30 minutes to prove it!
