Fine wines, international and domestic cheeses, and handcrafted items from local purveyors are among the mainstays at Gastromé Market, a new specialty wine and cheese destination slated to open Labor Day weekend in Scottsdale.
Opening its market doors at 10 a.m. and restaurant at 11 a.m. on Sat., Sept. 3 at 7704 E Doubletree Ranch Rd. in Gainey Ranch, Gastromé Market features indoor and outdoor seating and an onsite classroom in addition to boutique wines, smoked and cured meats, and a wide variety of handcrafted items from local artisans.
On opening day, the first 100 people in line when the shop opens on Sept. 3 will receive a complimentary champagne toast for their table each time they visit for the next year (limit one toast per week for up to four guests). They’ll also enjoy product samples and be among the first to get a glimpse of the expansive space.
In addition to sampling specialty wines and cheeses, Gastromé Market grand opening attendees can rub elbows with some of the vendors selling and educating about their products in the shop and peruse a wide range of local products ranging from fresh baked goods to board-ready charcuterie.
Gastromé Market offers products that Gastromé owners, Jenny Le and Tiffany Chavez have curated and learned about from passionate food lovers across the globe. The space holds an abundance of items and experiences including:
• A 3,500-square-foot market space where guests can peruse selections perfect for any occasion
• A wine alcove where guests can grab a bottle they love or try something new under the guidance of Gastromé’s expert team
• A 15-foot temperature-controlled wine eurocave with over 280 bottles of collected wines
• A bakery corner filled with international and local pastries
• A grab-and-go deli counter with fresh items made daily for lunch or dinner
• A three-case cheese island displaying both international and domestic cheeses along with a hanging trellis of cured meats
• A 1,500 sq ft. restaurant run by Gastromé’s talented team of chefs
• Gift basket making stations where shoppers can build an ideal present using any product found on the shelves
• A chance to chat with experts who are passionate and educated in helping guests curate their own selections to bring home
“This has been a true labor of love for us, and we can’t wait to get the doors open and meet the community,” says Le, who co-owns Gastromé Market alongside partner Chavez. “We’ve worked hard to create an inclusive environment where you can feel free to ask whatever you want –you won’t find any stuffiness or intimidation here.”
In addition to the shop itself, Gastromé Market will host classes and instructional seminars on everything from how to pair food and wine to how to build the best charcuterie board.
“Whether you’re in search of something specific or you just want to see what we’re all about, stop by this September and we’ll show you around,” Chavez says. “We’re wine and cheese lovers ourselves, and we’re really passionate about food and drink, in general. Our goal is to make you as excited about it as we are, and if we can get you to try something new, even better!”
