An Authentic Italian Market & Restaurant Experience

About Max's

Market & Eatery

Mario ‘Max’ DeMarchi has brought his passion for fine food and personal service to a new location in Califon. Max’s philosophy is simple — offer fresh ingredients prepared in an authentic manner in a pleasant setting. Using only top quality products (including hormone free, grass-fed beef products) Max’s food is presented by a professional staff at fair pricing.

This new venture follows a series of successful food service businesses that Max has had throughout Somerset and Hunterdon Counties. The Califon location represents a new concept that many customers have asked for:

Create an authentic Italian market as part of the restaurant experience. Allow customers to enjoy Max’s ’cooked-to-order’ food at home. Make Max’s the ‘go-to’ place for catering when an event is planned.
