Our Beginning

From the earliest days, Italian culture and tradition were woven into the fabric of my family's daily life. As the child of Italian immigrants, I grew up immersed in the joys of authentic Italian cuisine, with my parents' restaurants and delis on Long Island serving as my culinary training ground.

Years later, I took those cherished lessons and brought them south to North Carolina, where my wife Laura and I founded Giacomo's Italian Market in 1999. Realizing an even greater need, we soon established the San Giuseppe Salami Company, named after the village where my mother was raised.

Today, we are proud to continue the time-honored traditions of our ancestors, crafting each product by hand with the utmost care and attention to quality. Using only locally-sourced Pork, we strive to bring the flavors of Italy to families across North Carolina.

Even as our small business has grown, our mission remains unchanged - to provide authentic, high-quality products that you can trust. From our family to yours, we hope you'll join us in celebrating the rich culinary heritage that has been passed down through the generations.

Buon Appetito —
