Eleanora’s Market started with an idea by founder Federico Cavatore to revitalize the neighborhood feel of the area where they live and do business. Named after Federico’s wife, the market first opened in June 2017. Since then, every Saturday, the family’s restaurant parking lot became the neighborhood venue for shoppers to buy fresh produce and browse for unique local finds.
Federico’s first father started the restaurant in 1983, and the family has since witnessed the rapid growth of the area. At the pace it was growing, Federico felt the area was losing its sense of community. By gathering local food producers and artisans and giving them a weekly place to do business, he also hopes to restore the area’s sense of community engagement.
