Covington's hometown grocery store in the heart of Covington is a full supermarket with a little bit of everything. The family-owned and operated store offers a variety of Louisiana-made specialty meats and prepared foods--sauces, dressings, preserves and dairy products--making this hometown favorite popular with visitors, too, who want authentic foods and culinary gifts to take home.
Alongside locally grown produce, organic products and popular brands, Acquistapace's has a full deli, lunch counter with hot meals (poboys, rotisserie chicken and more), a salad bar, olive bar, prepared sushi to go, and a wide selection of cheeses (their annual Cheese Extravaganza with wine pairings held around Thanksgiving each year is legendary). The store offers catering, including charcuterie boards, and complete dinners with all the trimmings for the holiday season, including Cajun Fried Turkey. In a hurry, or can't decide what to cook? Be sure to check out their weekly "What's for Dinner Cooking Corner" display, with all the ingredients, sides and pairings in one place to grab and go.
Acquistapace's is also well known for its large selection of spirits, wine and beer from around the world--the largest inventory in the state--and friendly, unpretentious service by knowledgeable staff. Connoisseurs of adult beverages will find just about everything they could want for their home bar or gifting, from hand-picked, signed and numbered spirits to mixes for the big party, as well as barware and accessories. Follow them on Facebook for announcements of wine tastings and their popular "For the Love of Wine & Cheese" educational tasting series.
