Emigrating from his native Sicily, Sebastiano LoCurto settled into the U.S. in the 1950's. When he first arrived he began working as a butcher by day, and truck driver at night, carting all the meat to the store to begin cutting the next morning. Day & Night he would do this routine for several years, before deciding to venture out on his own. Even as he opened his first butcher shop in Queens, he continued to personally go into the meat market at night and hand select the meat that was to be used. He was picky about what he would sell his customers; hence he built a reputation for carrying only the best and freshest cuts of meat available.
His hard work and ambition warranted opening several stores in the Bronx and Queens. As times changed, he expanded into deli meats & cheeses, produce, along with a complete line of fine grocery and dairy items. The only thing that time didn't change was his persistence on using the finest quality, at the best possible value to the consumer.
Today, his son Pat operates Pat's Marketplace. He is committed to maintaining the same standard of Quality and service that his father Sebastiano taught him was necessary to succeed. There are now two Pat’s Marketplace locations, one East Northport and our new store in East Islip. From the moment you arrive at our store, you have a sense of how fresh and selected our fine deli cold cuts and cheeses are. Also, the presentation of our fine cuts of beef, pork, and lamb coupled with our heaping displays of incredibly fresh fruits and vegetables will show you how we have become Long Island's Premier Meat, Produce, and Deli Market.
You never have to worry about your purchases when you shop at Pat’s Marketplace, "where quality counts!"
