The Faces of Gourmet Food: Tony Chernalis, Mark Chernalis & Zach Chernalis
The Market Basket
THE MARKET BASKET’S ORIGINAL WYCKOFF grocery store, butcher shop and deli were opened in 1960 when Tony Chernalis realized the answer to a call for homemade prepared dinner dishes by a community of busy corporate professionals. Almost three decades later, with the help of Tony’s son, Mark, the family added a larger store in Franklin Lakes, dubbed Bergen’s gourmet paradise.
With Zach now on-board, three generations of the Chernalis’ family oversee two locations of the Market Basket including an awardwinning five-star catering division offering party planning, custom invitations and themed entertainment. Thanks to top-notch culinarytrained chefs, hand-selected produce, freshest fish picked daily, top-quality prime meats from authentic butchers and store baked goods, The Market Basket has been the recipient of dozens of awards and rave reviews. But, above all, it’s exceptional service and customer loyalty that remain top priority. It’s no wonder this high-end specialty food emporium is one of Bergen’s most beloved destinations.
