"The key to our success is good people,
and we have the best in the business."
Alfredo Lunardi was born in Lucca, Italy. In 1950, at the age of 20, he left his native Italy to settle in San Francisco. By 1953, Alfredo acquired a local San Francisco market called "Mother's Market," located at 23rd and Irving Street. From that simple beginning, Alfredo, with help of his sons Ralph and Paul, eventually opened 8 locations in the Bay area.
"The key to our success is good people, and we have the best in the business," explains Alfredo proudly.
“When customers walk into Lunardi's, it's as if they are walking into our home. You can feel the warmth between our employees and our customers."
Such a great market! They have all the same typical grocery store items but also a nice selection of specialty items. One of the best (in my opinion) selection of baked goods and desserts (yum!) as well as a fresh salad/ soup bar. Everything is clean and very well organized and the employees are some of the friendliest I've come across in a grocery store and very willing to help you find what you're looking for.
