Carmine’s Gourmet Market

OUR HISTORY

The Beginning

Born in the town of Vittorito, Italy, Carmine Giardini spent his early childhood going to school and working on his family’s farm.

As an enthusiastic young man, Carmine came to the United States to finish school and later work as a butcher in Connecticut until his relocation to South Florida. In 1972, he opened his first meat market in Pembroke Pines, which quickly became his inspiration for future endeavors.

The Progression

In 1988 at 16,000 square feet, Carmine opened his flagship market in Palm Beach Gardens. Step by step, the Gourmet Market grew with new offerings such as fresh meats and seafood, deli items, and authentic Italian brick-oven pizza. People drove for miles to see the new, unique market they’d been hearing about. As the store grew, it quickly became a local favorite selling everything from Live Maine Lobster and freshly baked breads, to wine and cheese selections and prepared meals to take home. The market eventually expanded next door into a 4-star, white tablecloth Italian restaurant with breath-taking waterfront views and a authentic Italian dining experience.
