The month of October is regarded as Italian National Heritage month. It is the month to show your Italian pride.
Our Italian heritage is a huge part of our family and our business. Our story started in Italy, specifically, in Mola di Bari where our founder was born. Angelo’s life in Italy shaped him as a person. He did not have the easiest life, but always found ways to persevere. When he came to America in search of a new life in 1950, his life changed and he faced challenges. Though there were many uncertainties, his drive and perseverance never wavered. He was excited for his new journey in America, but couldn’t help but miss his home and his family. The memories of home and his incredible work ethic contributed to his dream which turned into Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets.
When Angelo and Romana began their business journey in 1958, he had hoped to bring a little bit of Italy into America. He used his knowledge from working in his family’s grocery store and on his family farm to form Caputo’s. Though we are an international market, our roots are in Italy.
We pride ourselves in keeping traditions alive. We rely on our Italian heritage in every aspect of our business– from what we cook with, the music we play, the items we carry and import, and so much more. Our market was made with the intentions to bring a little bit of home to you.
