About DeCicco Family Markets

Started in 1973, in a tiny storefront in the Bronx, Frank DeCicco slowly but surely grew Decicco Family Market into the thriving business we know today with the help of the rest of the DeCicco family. Only the finest produce, the best quality meat, the freshest seafood, the most diverse grocery, and the best prepared deli selection suffice.  However, the premium quality doesn’t stop there: We also feature some of the most vast beer and cheese selections in the Westchester and Rockland county areas, with varieties numbering in the hundreds and with places of origin that span every corner of the world.
