The story of Rastelli isn’t about food so much as it is about our passion for great food. Food you can feel good about eating. Good about buying. Good about serving to your family.
Our passion for great food began in 1975 when Ray Rastelli, Jr. opened a butcher shop called the Meat Stop in Deptford, NJ. He loved bringing quality meat to Deptford-area families so much, within a few years his brother Tony joined him and opened a second Meat Stop, and together they went on to open a total of eight more around South Jersey. Together with their families, they transformed the stores into a growing business that allows them to serve the same great, quality products to families around the country.
Today, we’re still passionate about food, committed to excellence, and family owned and operated. We believe in hard work and doing things the right way. Above all, we respect the trust that you put in us to bring only the best food to your table. Everything we do and every decision we make begins with the intention of earning that trust. Your 100-percent satisfaction is not simply a goal; it is a promise we make to ourselves and to you—our customers. And, a daily affirmation that everything we do is “For the love of great food.”Rastelli Market Fresh, formerly known as Rastelli’s Meat Stop, is our retail grocery concept—a food-lover’s haven packed with all the essentials and premium products you need to prepare delicious family meals, stock your pantry, host an impromptu dinner party or simply grab and go.
A mainstay in the South Jersey community for more than three decades, the recently renovated Rastelli Market Fresh in Deptford continues to offer a large selection of gourmet meats, fresh seafood, chef-prepared meals and groceries. Growing demand inspired the 2014 opening of a second, 35,000 square-foot location in Marlton. In addition to the gourmet meats and fresh seafood that Rastelli Market Fresh has become known for, the Marlton location also offers a variety of local produce, an international assortment of made-to-order meals, a brick oven pizzeria, a full selection of wine and specialty brews, a juice bar, coffee bar, artisan bakery and salad bar, and a café/lounge with indoor and outdoor seating where you can sit and enjoy it all.

At the epicenter of food management since 1976, our operation began with a single retail location and has expanded to include two high-quality facilities, one for processing and one for distribution, that are USDA-inspected and have earned a Level 3 Safe Quality Food rating.

Our access to local ports and relationships with commercial vessels allow us to be first to market when a regional species season opens. We also source products directly from fisheries around the world. Additionally, all our seafood comes from safe and licensed commercial vessels and ports species and is traceable back to the vessel.
