Dear Friends,

I hope this finds you well. As we all navigate these challenging times, I want you to know that your safety is of the utmost concern to me. As a business, I am working to navigate these uncertain times while I bring my special approach to cuisine to you. Due to this, I have shifted our business model. While anyone who knows me knows how much I love to cook for you, this is currently not an option. I am excited to bring my unique Italian market to you where I continue to share my passion for cooking and serving our community. I am proud to introduce my newest concept, Chef Gaetano’s Artisan Foods. Chef Gaetano’s Artisan Foods will bring only the highest quality products to you while maintaining the tradition of serving you the highest quality products in my own unique and creative way.


Everything you need to create your own Gaetano’s experience at home is made fresh and easy to finish in your kitchen. Chef Gaetano’s Artisan Foods market will continue to grow and we will be adding to our market menu to make it even more delicious. You will find wonderful homemade salumi and salsiccie, as

well as fresh homemade pastas, sauces, appetizers and more. Our bestselling cocktails and great wine list are also along for the ride!

We are also now making bread, pizza and focaccia. We have a beautiful new pizza oven and I have a very special recipe developed with our own flour mix of ancient grains specially prepared to create a light, airy, and crispy crust that I think you will enjoy. I can’t wait for you to try it! Our classic pizza will continue to be served, made from scratch and fresh out of the oven. We will also be adding new and exciting pizzas

every day. These new pizzas will be of my own creation and will change daily, so you will always have a new chance to explore my Italian heritage in a modern way.

Many of you have had our vegan and gluten-free pizzas and loved them. I have expanded our allergen- free menu with breads, and will continue to add new delicious items to this menu.

We look different, but you will still find the same attention to detail and the highest quality products that you have become accustomed to. I’ll be here too every day to welcome you at Chef Gaetano’s Artisan Foods!

Sign up for our mailing list or follow us on social media to be the first to know about any new specials in our market. You can always give us a call too to see what we have in store for you. Of course, all of your Gaetano’s Forest Park gift certificates will be honored at the market!

Thank for your understanding and support. We could not survive without you. See you at Chef Gaetano’s Artisan Foods market!

Ciao, Gaetano
