We are the last remaining Pork Store Salumeria (History of Italian Cured meats) on Arthur Avenue.
Our Pork Store has a rich 48 year old tradition of carefully preparing homemade meats and cheeses with herbs and spices from the Calabria region of Southern Italy. We always pride ourselves on purveying products that will allow you to taste a bit of Calabrese history.
Like history, we manage to preserve some and conveniently forget some as well.
The two men responsible for preserving this one of a kind experience are “Peter” and “Pietro” but to play it safe...just say or ask for Pete..
Pietro, was born in The Bronx and grew up running and playing on the streets of Arthur Avenue in the Belmont section of the Bronx. It was home then and today he prides himself on welcoming everyone into his home at Calabria Pork Store in The Bronx.
Includes our master cheese maker Dominic. He absolutely understands the art of making cheese in all variations. Mozzarella, Bocconcini, Smoked Mozzarella, Scamora, basket cheese, we can go on and so can Dominic! Ask him yourself on your next visit, he will tell you he does parties and weddings...
