Columbus' specialty markets have all the fixings you need to build a gourmet sandwich at home. We visited some of our favorite spots in a quest to create a classic Cuban (just add mustard).

Bread

The Hills Market Downtown is a great place to find fresh loaves from Grandview-based Dan the Baker. Farther north? Stop at Weiland's Market in Clintonville for a rustic Italian loaf ($3.99), baked on site.

Meat

Grab a fistful of cash and head to Thurn's Specialty Meats on Greenlawn Avenue, where fourth-generation butchers-and brothers-Albert and Anton Thurn brine, spice and smoke pork, beef, fish and venison. We picked up cuts of their double-smoked cottage ham ($7.50 per pound), roast pork ($7.50 per pound) and coppa ($7.25 per pound).

Cheese

Weiland's is always a best bet for cheese; cheesemonger Kent Rand stocks more than 200 varieties from 20 countries. For this sandwich, though, we picked up creamy Guggisberg baby Swiss cheese ($6.25 per pound) from Thurn's because we were in the neighborhood.

Pickles

Rand steered us to these newly imported French cornichons ($1.75) at Weiland's. "They're a little sour, a little sweet," Rand says. "It's the one ingredient that will make your sandwich different than everyone else's."
