Providing good food and refreshment is a family tradition for the brothers behind San Marzano Italian Market. It runs in their blood.

Their great-grandfather, Filipo Colasessano, made his way to the West Virginia coal mines after leaving Italy on one of the many boats transporting immigrants from Europe over a century ago. Filipo lost his leg in a coal mining accident and was unable to return to work underground. The coal company set him up with a General Store and Tavern. Filipo began to offer delicious pepperoni rolls and pizzas and the establishment, now known as Colasessano’s, flourished.

Meanwhile, Filipo’s daughter, Carinda, met and married Giuseppe Padula, a local businessman who had his own tavern, The Madison Street Inn. Fast forward two generations and Carinda and Giuseppe’s grandsons are striving to continue the tradition with an enticing and authentic Italian market in north central West Virginia.
