Laraia's Mozzarella at My Organic Market

Now that we're in the season for tomatoes and basil, check out the Laraia's Mozzarella for sale at My Organic Market in Jessup.

This a tasty ball of mozzarella that has a mild, milky taste that goes perfect with a garden tomato and a leaf of basil. I'm actually a fan of the national-brand mozzarella balls at Giant and Harris Teeter, the Laraia's cheese has a flavor a little more like milk and a feeling that is a little less elastic.

I have written before about shopping for cheese or for organic products in Howard County. My Organic Market offers a small, but thoughtful selection of both in the Columbia East shopping center at Rte 175 and U.S. 1.

My Organic Market (now Mom's Organic Market)
7361 Assateague Dr. #190
Jessup, MD 20794

NEAR: This is the Columbia East shopping center at Rte 175 and U.S. 1. There is a Starbucks and a Rita's facing Rte 175, and you'll see My Organic Market right in front of you when you pull into the parking area.

Yum, I'll check this mozzarella out! I love MOM's. Some of my faves from there: Turkey Ham slices - genius & delicious, Everyday Shea Lotion, Crisp Pea Snacks, Wallaby yogurts, Wellness 95% Turkey (canned, for my cat), VitaSpelt spaghetti, Rudi's spelt bread, all the organic produce, esp Packham pears are the tastiest. There are a million other things, but mostly I love that I see something new and eco every time I'm there, but I don't have to wade thru crystals and kokopelli ornaments and things like that, which I might even buy but def don't need!
