It's a sad day to report the end of Rosa's Italian Market & Deli across from Post Falls City Hall on 4th St in "Downtown" Post Falls. Rosa's opened in 2009 but quickly became a favorite little restaurant of many in the Spokane and Coeur d' Alene region. The owner also held an annual North Idaho Italian Festival in the City Center area by the restaurant. No word on that event's fate.
Rosa's Italian Market is already closed however some limited classes and catering may still be available.The reason for the closing is due to the business owners issues with surgeries,etc... . The following is Facebook post from Rosa's earlier this week giving a full explanation-
I learned from my doctor that I wont be able to continue the long hours on my feet that it requires of me to run the store. I never really recovered from the injuries to my foot/ankle from 2011 and now find that I need more surgery, which I will have done in the beginning of March. I will still run the wine tasting and apps classes till the end of February for the Groupon customers. I will also run a couple more cooking classes for my "stragglers" on a private basis, who need to make up a class. Catering on a limited basis will be an option for those of you who just can't live without my cooking. I just need enough notice, so please call and leave me a message. I will keep this page up to post recipes, information on classes and catering options for the holidays throughout the year.
Please don't be sad for me. I was able to live my dream for 4 years and during that time won numerous awards and recognition for the store and our food, but most importantly made many new friends, most who became family. I don't have enough space to thank everyone who has traveled this journey with me, you know who you are and I love you.
I can't say I learned a whole lot I didn't already know in 2012, with the exception being perhaps how very much I, and Rosa's Italian Market & Deli meant to so many of you... I really had no idea how much I mattered to so many of you, and as a result, I am eternally grateful to you all... Thank you for stopping me in public to share the love, or ask "what's next?"... It's a New Year, and I am happy to report that the possibilities are endless... For us all... Happy and Healthy 2013, Facebook Family...
