About: Caputo’s is Utah’s leading purveyor of regional Italian and Southern European foods, winner of numerous specialty food awards and an advocate for bean-to-bar craft chocolate. With four locations across Salt Lake Valley, Caputos has solidified its position as one of the nation’s best specialty food markets, with a mission to promote and preserve culinary traditions of our ancestors.
