About Bianchini's

Al Bianchini and his son

The Bianchini family has been in the grocery business for generations. Many of our customers remember our Foodville store at 616 Laurel Street in San Carlos. In 2009 we moved to our current location at 810 Laurel Street and expanded our offerings. Both of our Peninsula locations offer shoppers the highest quality and personalized service. In 1998 we opened our store in the Ladera Shopper in Portola Valley and established a very loyal following.

Albert Bianchini Jr. (left) and Sr. (right)Our grandfather, Al Bianchini Sr. and our father, Al Bianchini, Jr. were both life-long butchers and our old-fashioned, full-service meat department is the cornerstone of our business. Generations of Peninsula shoppers know Bianchini’s offers the finest in USDA choice meat, seafood & poultry. Many of our butchers were trained by our dad, and they love what they do!

Bianchini’s produce is also a family tradition. Our uncle, Jerry Bianchini, set a standard back in the old Foodville days that we still honor today. We carry an extensive selection of organic varieties as well as gorgeous locally grown and imported fruits and vegetables. Take your time, smell the wonderful aromas, and enjoy the colors and textures of the freshest produce available. Our staff is always on hand to answer your questions about selecting the ripest piece of fruit, or offering suggestions on preparing a healthy recipe for you or your family.

Our grocery shelves are stocked with all your favorite brands. You’ll find lots of international items, unique spices, olive oils, and sauces; everything for the most sophisticated chefs. Budget-conscious shoppers will be pleased with our offerings, too. Have special dietary needs? We probably have what you’re looking for including gluten-free, sugar-free, low sodium, vegan, and more. Have an item you’d like us to stock? Just ask and we’ll order it for you!

Our mouth-watering gourmet cheese selection is a treat in itself. We carefully select varieties from around the world as well from local artisans. Need help selecting the right cheese or a pairing suggestion? Let us help you; you may discover some new favorites.

The Bakery at Bianchini’s features house-made tarts, breads and treats as well as a sinful selection of goods from local and international bakers. Special orders for cakes and treats are always welcome.

And Bianchini’s liquor department has it all. Find just the right bottle for a special event, or something to bring home and enjoy with a meal. We carry a great selection of your favorite microbrews, as well as your imported and domestic favorites. And all the wines you love are here, including our Bianchini Family Vineyards label. With all this variety, you can always find something new and different.

Shop locally, support your community, and experience real old-fashioned service from our family to yours.
