John Russo’s Wine Warehouse And Deli Is NOW Carrettino Italian Market & Wine

John Russo owns one place, and one place only in Grand Rapids, Carrettino Italian Market and Wine. What use to be known as John Russo’s Wine Warehouse and Deli on 44th Street and Kalamazoo has a new name now.  It is officially Carrettino Italian Market and Wine.  Carrettino is an Italian name derived from the century old Sicilian donkey cart.  In fact, John has one of those in his front window and it’s also a part of his new logo.

For centuries John Russo and his family has been dedicated to providing customers with authentic specialty foods and wines.  Carrettino, their signature Sicilian donkey cart is what John’s forefathers used to transport their products.  John’s family from the old country were fishermen, farmers and merchants in Sicily.  They began to immigrate to Michigan in the late 1800′s.  Today John’s fourth, fifth and sixth generations continue the tradition in their quaint, little shop in the Towne and Country Plaza Shopping Center, located at 4301 Kalamazoo SE at 44th street, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

John’s place specializes in Italian groceries.  The deli is filled with authentic Italian meats and cheeses.  The kitchen produces quality Italian sausage, meatballs, pasta sauces, antipasto party trays and more.  And of course there is a wide variety of wines from all over the world!

Carrettino Italian Market and Wine is John Russo’s only store and is independently owned by John and his wife Maha, Gina, Mike and Greg Russo.
