More Than a Half Century on The Hill
DiGregorio’s Grocery has the feel of a small market in an Italian village. When I dropped by yesterday the place was a-buzz with local and area shoppers. Having a wine and cheese tasting in progress (as they often do), only added to the charm of the family-owned grocery. The business goes back to 1971, when the place was opened by Sicilian immigrants Salvatore “Sam” and Dora DiGregorio.
An Abundance of Options
I eyed the vast array of vinegars and oils and determined that I don’t have space in my small condo kitchen for yet another variety. Even so, I make note of what’s available.
Next, I surveyed the refrigerator case with its vast assortment of cheeses and pastas (ravioli, tortellini, gnocchi). After much indecision, I settled on a package of four-cheese ravioli and one of beef.

DiGregorio’s: A Culinary Wonderland
The store has evolved from a local neighborhood grocery into an award-winning, international market with products from Italy, France, Greece, Spain and more. But gourmet food is not all you’ll find at DiGregorio’s. Look for kitchenware, aprons, wines, soft drinks, breads, cheeses, frozen pastas, sauces, deli meats, and more. All you’ll ever need for your favorite Italian recipe is here at your fingertips.
What’s more, the DiGregorio family offers their favorite recipes on their website.
DiGregorio’s Italian Market: 5200 Daggett at the corner of Marconi and Daggett on The Hill. Open: Mon.-Sat. 8a–5p. Closed Sunday.
