About Valeriote’s Market
Our philosophy in business, as in life, is based on a strong sense of community. We work and play here. Dine, shop and are entertained here. We volunteer, teach, and help bring people together. Valeriote’s Market is an extension of our lives and established to support our community and offer the best products and services we possibly can.
The Valeriote’s Market we know today is a reincarnation of Valeriote’s Groceteria, established in 1910 by Michael Valeriote on Alice Street in the ward. After operating successfully for over 50 years, the store was sold and eventually converted into housing.
Fast forward to 2009, when local businessman Larry Valeriote saw an opportunity to purchase a thriving butcher shop on Yorkshire Street. Renaming the store Valeriote’s Market, Larry soon after expanded the store to include a full kitchen for prepared meals and baked goods. In 2012, Larry brought chefs Brian Schmeler and Stacey Kanelos onboard, who would subsequently purchase the store in 2019.
