Before you know it, the holidays will be upon us- as will our gift-giving conundrums. We may have a solution, because we have found that no one can resist:

  1. Good Eats.
  2. Products that support cool local Mom-and-Pop shops.

In those regards, the new and existing items being offered by Fertitta’s Deli at 1124 Fairfield will fill the bill (and fit just about any budget).

Fertitta’s has set up a new shop for store swag. Items include wearables like hats and tee shirts, Fertitta’s-themed Christmas ornaments, mugs, tumblers and tote bags. The Padre Fertitta Foods (pickled vegetables, Savory Italian Garlic, Marinated Mushrooms, Strozzapreti “Priest Strangler” Pasta, and more) are still popular, as is the store’s own Papa Fertitta’s Olive Mix.


The variety of delicious items now offered at Fertitta’s Deli.

The marinated veggies were just the beginning for Fertitta’s owners Patrick and Agatha, and they continue to test the waters on new products.

Score! Customers being treated to some savory samples.

While picking up your gifts, it’s never a bad idea to have lunch! The home of the original ‘Muffy’ sandwich is open 10:30 am-1:45 pm, Monday- Friday.
