V. Marchese Celebrates 90 Years of Selling Fresh Produce, Dairy, and Spices!

V. Marchese is delighted to be celebrating 90 years of delivering the freshest produce, dairy, and spices to culinary professionals throughout the Midwest! As a family-owned and operated company of multiple generations, we continue to carry on the legacy of our founder by honoring his family values.

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. He instilled the importance of customer service and quality food as he passed down the business to his children.

Squeeze the Day!

Every day is an opportunity to make a positive difference in each others’ lives. We make the most of it by providing the best service in the industry. 

Everyone in the V. Marchese family is happy to go the extra mile to ensure that our customers have everything they need. From menu recommendations to same-day delivery, we are here for our customers around the clock! Because at the beginning, middle, and end of the day, we’re produce people. But we’re also people people.

No matter how big or small we get, the relationships we build will always be the most important part of the business. After all, we couldn’t do it without our loyal employees and customers. 

It’s Always Go Thyme!

Some things never change, like our commitment to our customers, our high-quality produce, and being leaders in the food safety industry. 

With that being said, we’re always improving. Have you noticed our new yellow delivery trucks? It was important to us to keep our brand as fresh as our veggies. So, we recently refreshed our brand identity, messaging, and truck designs to honor our founder and everything that has led us to this moment. 

Here’s to another 90 years of being a local family business, passed down from generation to generation. We’re going into our 90th year with a clear vision, and an ever-present effort to improve. 

Thank you for continuing to choose V. marchese as your partner in delivering honest-to-goodness fruits, vegetables, and more to your customers.
