Italian Gourmet and Specialty Market
Family Owned & Operated for over 80 years!


The Waverly Market was established in 1929.  Today, this recently renovated Gourmet Italian Market is run by the 3rd Generation of the Stefanini Family,David Stefanini, whose father and grandfather started the business together. When David’s Grandfather (Giacomo Stefanini) died, David’s Uncles and AuntEva worked with David’s father Joseph to carry on the family business. Growing up David and his brother Joe would work at the store helping out onSaturdays and during school vacations.

 In 1975, David who was in his last year of college studying to be an engineer and graduating at the top his class sadly lost his father. At this point in time the only family left working at the market was an Aunt, an Uncle and David’s mother.  Instead of pursuing a career as a Civil Engineer, David knew what he had to do, and what was in his heart.  After his father died he made a decision to work in the family business where his Father, Mother, Aunt and Uncle had made their life’s work.  Making this special sacrifice for his family allowed the business to survive, and his mother to continue to work after losing her husband at such a young age.  Today, at 89 years old David’s mother Angie is still working beside her son, giving him the help and support that only a mother could give. David’s Uncle has since passed on, but his Aunt Eva at 91 is also still there helping her nephew and watching the wonderful changes taking place. 


Today the Waverly Market is thriving, and not just because it is run by this dedicated and close-knit family, but because of the love and passion that David himself puts into everything he does. Through many years of working beside his Father and Uncle,David learned many things, which includes being one of the bestmeat cutters in the industry.  He is also an avid reader of many cooking magazines and is continually trying to learn new cooking techniques or recipes.  But David will tell you it is the love and support from his family, great employees, and terrific customers that help to make the Waverly Market such a success!
