Best Small Market 

Gaucho Gourmet
935 Isom, (210) 277-7930, gauchogourmet.com

Don’t be confused by its warehouse digs—a stop at Gaucho means visiting the entire Ciorciari family. Brothers Juan Manuel and Luciano will walk you through the aisles of espresso coffee, authentic balsamic vinegar and wee drums of olive oil, while Luciano’s wife Sylvia rings up your basket. Try not getting lost in the aisles of small canned fish, jars of briny olives, frozen goat sausage links, stinky cheeses, loose-leaf yerba mate and Italian cookies. Stop by on Saturdays for lunch specials made with Gaucho products, fresh produce via Johnson’s Backyard Garden and samples cooked by a slew of visiting chefs.
