V. Marchese has served fresh, honest-to-goodness produce since 1934—and we’ll do it for a hundred years more!

V. Marchese is a family-owned company providing fresh produce, dairy, and spices to restaurateurs and culinary professionals throughout the Midwest. Our humble origins take us back to 1934, when our namesake Vito Marchese, fondly known as the “banana man,” delivered fruits and vegetables from his hand-painted truck.
