La Monica’s Salumeria – a Croton update

salumoiFormerly the Harmon Deli, the name has now changed to La Monica’s Salumeria. A salumeria, by definition, is a store that offers lines of cured meats such as salamis, prosciutto, a variety of cheeses and the like. The word on the street is that the family made this change to honor their Sicilian heritage and to bring more authentic Italian fare to the Village of Croton-on-Hudson.


Inside, you’ll find authentic dried pastas from Italy, imported olive oils, canned tomatoes,  and other treats.  A small case offers frozen ravioli and cavatelli. Hanging above the counter are sweet and hot cured salumi made on premise.  Another homemade delicacy is the freshly pulled mozzarella.  It was creamy, fresh and very delicious. On top of the counter is a basket resplendent with large chunks of wrapped cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano,  the king of Italian cheeses,and the grassy and subtle nutty sheep’s milk cheese known as Pecorino Romano. Their authenticity is validated  by the famous stamped rinds. As I often see in Italian restaurants too, the spelling is off – – but the product is real.



La Monica’s continue its tradition of creating many interesting Italian sandwiches with names clearly coming from aunts, uncles, friends and even one called the Carmen Unisex, named for the salon next door.

The take-out menu has much to offer for the party set or even for those who like to gather with friends for the big game.

Show your support for this “deli”/Salumeria with great intentions and a nice addition to this charming town.

    I could not agree more that La Monica’s Salumeria is a wonderful place. I walk there at least twice a week for various meats, etc. But why, oh why, do they have to sell fresh made chocolate cannoli shells with the cannoli cream. Dear God! They’re delicious – but then again, so is everything in the store. Think local, shop local, live local. Visit this gem, you will NOT be disappointed.
