Welcome to Arcangeli Grocery Company Thank you for stopping in to visit our web page. Many newcomers to the coast and people passing through Pescadero ask about our history. Those of you who are acquainted with Norm know how longwinded he is, so we decided to write a brief story about our beginnings and the direction we're headed. First off, for those of you visiting us for the first time here, online, you should know that we are located in historic Pescadero California a beautiful country town about two miles off Highway 1 on the coast between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. After World War II, Norm's mother, Louise, and her brother, Alfred Arcangeli (both pictured Below ), changed the company name to Arcangeli Grocery. In 1957, Norm Benedetti took over the family business and it became known as "Norm's Market." Norm initiated an extensive renovation program in 1979 that filled the store with wonderful specialty goods and a full California wine stock. The 24 varieties of hot French bread later won acclaim in Northern California's Home and Garden magazine. In 1980, Norm's son, Mike Benedetti, graduated from college and partnered with his Dad. "Let's not play the supermarket game! Let's create something special, " they decided. Norm's Market was to become the most unique, personalized service market on the coast! The market boasts a full-service deli with good old fashioned service. Custom sandwiches are made on our own scratch baked rolls. Over 70 varieties of cheese are available. We stock enough lunch meats to satisfy any palate. Many prepared foods are ready to go from rotisserie chicken to fully cooked beef tri tips for the commuter as well as the weekend picnic crowd. We also feature Harris Ranch USDA choice meat and our own line of homemade pork sausages: artichoke sausage, linguica, chorizo, sundried tomato & basil, and Italian sausage - our specialty. After Mike joined the family business, he stocked the market with an extensive line of California wines, as well as some vintage Cabernets and French Bordeaux that are housed in Grandpa Arcangeli's wine cellar. Many of the vast selection of California wines have been stored in the wine cellar for 10 years or more. All of our breads are scratch baked with no preservatives and handmade the old fashioned way. The Garlic Herb French and Artichoke French are our specialties. We also offer over 24 other varieties of French and Italian breads.
