If you’re from the Norwalk area, you’re likely are familiar with owners of Dave’s Food Mart and Dave’s Park Avery.
Dave Fisher opened the original Dave’s Food Mart in 1978 which is now located at the top of the hill on Benedict Avenue in Norwalk. In 2001, Dave and his family opened a second location at the corner of SR 250 and Mason Road in Avery.
Dave passed away in 2012, but both of his stores continue to operate under the management of his wife Philomena (Phil), son Joe, and daughters Julie and Jeanne. Other family members work at both stores including Joe’s two kids, Jack and Makenna.
This hard-working, fun family is dedicated to the community and their customers.
They are currently building a new store at their site in Avery to provide more options to their customers, including a new drive-thru, more parking, and convenient hours. According to Julie, the new store will offer breakfast and lunch specials, and they’ll be featuring their fried chicken made famous by the store in Norwalk!
When it opens this fall, the Avery store will be open 5:00 am to midnight and will still include a gas station and convenience store. Customers may also notice a name change that incorporates the original name with the proud Avery ties, Dave’s Food Mart Avery.
