Traditions & Tastes of Greece

Our CEO, Matt Caputo, is half Greek. His grandmother (yiayia) arrived in SLC in 1948 and never learned to speak English. Out of necessity, she planted a diverse urban farm, often with seeds and starts she brought from Greece. To this day, it is the flavors and aromas of her recipes that inform which products adorn Caputo’s shelves. Recently, the whole Caputo clan embarked on a trip to various parts of Greece, including their ancestral home on the island of Crete. This trip and yiayia’s memory are the inspiration for the creation of our Greek Catalog, highlighting foods and traditions of this ancient and beautiful culture. Note: select products not eligible for purchase at Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
