As most of our customers know, we got our start over 50 years ago as a fresh produce stand on Harlem Avenue in Elmwood Park. In those days, every morning before the sun rose Angelo Caputo would drive down to the produce market on south Market Street in search of the fresh fruits and vegetables he'd need for the day. His loyal customers were often waiting at the store the moment it opened, and some would help him pry open the crates of produce for display. There's nothing quite like the appearance and aroma of fresh romaine and cilantro, gigantic red and green peppers, and casaba melons at the beginning of the day.
Some things never change -- or they change ever so slightly. Angelo himself has retired from his predawn trips to the produce terminal, but in his place several Caputo produce buyers continue to arrive each morning and make the walk from stall to stall, looking for the freshest and best variety in produce for the store.
Fresh fruit, fresh herbs, and fresh vegetables – our Produce Department is all about FRESH! We go to market in Wisconsin and Illinois to select the freshest PREMIUM, top quality fruits and vegetables for you and your family. Flavorful, crisp, and delicious. Healthy, wholesome, and nutritious
Everyone loves eating ALL their vegetables when they come from Angelo Caputo’s. And once you've had a salad made from our mescaline lettuce or tried our fresh Andy Boy Rapini, we guarantee you'll become a veggie lover as well! Our selection of vegetables -- which ranges from asparagus to zucchini and all the letters in-between -- can’t be beat. Oh, by the way, you will absolutely love our prices, too!
Fresh herbs can enhance the flavor of any salad or dish. Our selection of herbs includes all of the essentials, such as Basil, Bay Leaf, Chervil, Chives, Dill, Lemon Grass, Marjoram, Mint, Oregano, Italian Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Sorel, Tarragon, Thyme and Lemon Thyme, and more.
The enormous variety of flavors found in sweet, juicy berries, ripe melons, and fresh tropical fruits is something that man has never successfully reproduced, so it's still up to us to find the best nature has to offer and deliver it to our customers. Whether you want your fruit whole, sliced, or by the case, consider our Produce Department your local orchard and feel free to come picking!
