Coming Soon: Valente’s Italian Specialties in Haddonfield

April 4th, 2018 Posted by Updates No Comment yet

You might have seen us posting on our Facebook page and Instagram profile but we wanted to make it officially official that we will be opening a brick and mortar store in downtown Haddonfield, NJ.

We found a nice, cozy location in King’s Court – 7 Kings Court to be exact – that we think will be the perfect spot for our specialty food shop. We are in the early stages of making this space our own, but we are extremely excited to share this news with you!

Our specialty food store will offer freshly prepared grab-and-go meals that will be available for pick up or delivered through GrubHub. We will have staple items and a carefully curated selection of imported and locally-made cheeses, meats, breads, and more that will be available year-round. You can expect the menu to change regularly based on seasonal and locally available ingredients, too.

We’ll be working directly with local farmers and food producers, as well as reputable importers to provide the best and freshest food products we can. We will also offer a selection of frozen items for sale for those who just want to put something away for a rainy day.

Our goal is to fill our shelves with products that our customers want and will keep coming back for. Products you might not find anywhere else. Whether it’s the Kinder eggs you ate as a kid, ‘nduja that instantly transports you to Calabria, the Brioschi you popped like candy, one of our favorite Italian cookbooks, or the same stovetop espresso maker your Nonna always used. We think you’re going to love our charming Italian food market in Haddonfield.

The new store will also serve as a commissary kitchen that will allow us to expand our catering operations for both private and corporate events.

See you this weekend, Rittenhouse Farmers' Market!

Of course, we will continue to offer our handmade food products at local farmers markets such as Rittenhouse Square Farmers Market and more this year. Keep checking our event calendar on where to find us or follow us on Facebook.

At this writing, we are planning for a late Spring opening. Stay tuned for more details!

Valente’s joins Rittenhouse Square Farmers’ Market

August 20th, 2017 Posted by Events, Updates No Comment yet

We are pleased to announce that Farm to City has asked us to join the Rittenhouse Square Farmers’ Market.

Starting on September 9, you will be able to find us there every Saturday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. We will be located on the 18th Street of the market. Rittenhouse Square is a year-round market and, with the exception of a few weeks where there are special events taking place in the square — the next two are September 16 and October 14 — we will be there for all of your Italian food needs.

This market is an addition to our ever-growing list of markets and will not impact our attendance at the Haddonfield Farmers’ Market.

We are honored to fill the shoes of Vera Pasta as they move on to bigger and better things.

A special thanks goes out to Jon Glyn at Farm to City for inviting us.

We will be serving all day, including our pizzelle tacos, and doing our part to raise awareness about Mexican farmers.

Farmers Market Season is Here

May 9th, 2017 Posted by Updates No Comment yet

It seems like it’s been years since we registered the business and that is because we have been planning nonstop to get to this point in time, Farmers Market season.

We are so incredibly excited to be at the markets in Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Merchantville, Dickinson Square, and The Fountain! The markets officially started this past weekend in Haddon Heights and the others are kicking off soon in the coming weeks. We plan to carry fresh pasta, sauces, and cheeses at the markets and our selection will vary based on both the market and the week. At special events, we will


We are proud to announce our CSP service, or Community Supported Pasta! Cooking is a pain and making healthy food is even more challenging. Let us take the pain out of it by providing you with the fresh ingredients to make top notch meals in minutes. Check out more about the CSP here.

Market Help

The good people at a Jersey shore market asked if we could be there but we are already committed to a different local market. If you will be down the shore on weekends this summer and would like to make extra cash on Saturday mornings, contact us.

Growth Chart

Although Valente’s is still very young, we are growing at a quicker rate than imagined. We are determining our next steps and will keep everyone informed as soon as we can. This includes a retail presence, expanded footprint in the region, and growth to our line of products.

Keep in Touch
