OUR HISTORY

Tony’s Fresh Market (“Tony’s) is a family-owned and operated grocery-chain in the Chicagoland area. Tony’s was founded in 1979 by Tony Ingraffia and Domenico Gambino, two Italian Immigrants with big dreams and an unprecedented work ethic. Now, after 40 years of hard work and dedication, Tony’s Fresh Market has 16 Locations throughout the Chicagoland area. Our stores feature fresh produce, excellent deli departments, unique bakery, and a large international selection of products.

Tony’s Fresh Market has always been deeply rooted in the local community. Over the past 40 years, we like to think that each and every vendor, employee, and customer that walks through our doors becomes a part of the Tony’s family. It’s the Tony’s way. And through our community-centered business, we hope to expand the many ways that Tony’s Fresh Market gives back. First and foremost, Tony’s charity is meant to serve the families and children of the Chicagoland area. By starting our new Tony’s foundation, we hope to assist those in our community and welcome them to the Tony’s family.
