We always have grand ambitions to throw a fantastic party for friends. Yet time has an annoying habit of running out when it comes to gathering supplies for said perfect party. Cork Market has made the wine portion of your kiki easy. Staff is knowledgable, friendly, and readily offers pairing suggestions. A wonderful selection of cheeses, charcuterie, and chocolates are on hand. But the staff-selected baskets, filled with endorsed wines that retail for around $10, are the best. Even if you know nothing about wine, or even if you only have five minutes to get in and out of the store because guests are already on their way, you can zoom in and grab a bottle that will be a crowd pleaser.
