October is National Pasta Month! As an Italian family, we know that most every meal includes a good plate of pasta. While we all have a special place in our heart for mom’s sauce on a Sunday, pasta is unique because there is a plethora of sauces, toppings, spices and everyone has a go-to!
There are so many options and add-ins to choose from. At Caputo’s, we pride ourselves in having tons of different pasta cuts available. Tons of brands, different cuts, fresh and frozen, imported. Then pick up your favorite sauce or the ingredients to make your own.

October is Italian National Heritage Month. As a store started by an Italian immigrant, we are proud to celebrate our heritage with you all!
To us, our Italian culture is a huge part of our foundation as a family and as a business. When our founder, Angelo Caputo, was just a teenager, he aspired to come to America in order to live out the American Dream and be able to provide for himself and his future family. He, like so many other immigrants, saw America as a land of opportunity. So when he had the opportunity to gain US citizenship by enlisting in the US Army, that’s what he did. He came to America at 18 ready to work… and work he did.
He eventually opened Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets. It started as a little produce market, but as more Italians came to America, he wanted to bring pieces of home here. Eventually, the little produce stand grew to serve a variety of cultures through importing! We continue to grow and bring other country’s staples right to your Caputo’s!
Your heritage is a big part of who you are. It shapes your values, character, traditions, and so much more. With October being Italian National Heritage Month, we want to recognize some of our shoppers who have a special connection and appreciation of the beautiful Italian Heritage!
