"Grocery shopping at Brookhaven Market for me is not just a routine task; it's a delightful adventure in creating cherished memories with the ones I love. I view every trip to the store as an opportunity to curate a culinary experience that will bring joy and togetherness to my guests. I take great pleasure in carefully selecting the freshest produce, the most delectable cheeses, and the finest ingredients that will culminate in a shared meal filled with laughter and warmth. The anticipation of gathering around the table, savoring the flavors, and exchanging stories is what truly makes the grocery shopping journey so fulfilling. Through food and meals, I try toweave moments of connection and love, leaving indelible imprints on the hearts of those who grace my home."
For Italians, a meal is more than just food. It is art. And like all art, it should be made with only the highest quality ingredients. Our family has abided by that belief since the company was founded in 1947 by Tony and Rosalie Alessi, in a backyard garage in Tampa, Florida.
