Italian Market Past and Present

The Italian Market is Halifax's premiere destination for all things Italian with the most extensive array of Italian food products east of Montréal.

The company was founded in 1994 by Nathan (Gus) Abato as a small wholesale delivery business supplying Italian food products to restaurants in Halifax. Now in business for over thirty years, The Italian Market has grown to include an in-store and online grocery, deli, eat-in and takeout restaurant, catering services and bakery. With a large and talented team of culinary, pastry and deli staff, who all share a passion for Italian food and quality ingredients, guests can relive fond memories of culinary adventures in Italy, or experience them for the first time, in the North End of Halifax.

We are committed to providing excellence in customer service and to offering delicious and authentic Italian foods to eat in, takeaway, or to be catered to a site of your choice.

We look forward to serving you soon, and to all of our loyal customers…Grazie!
