Ferrara’s Market….A Franklin MA Italian Market That is “Molto Bene”


Ferrara’s Market in Franklin is a great place to shop for your meats and specialty items.  They have good veal and their cold cuts are excellent.

Via Barbara Todaro (RE/MAX Executive Realty in Franklin, Ma):

The Town of Franklin MA has a very large Italian population, and where there are Italians, there is wonderful Italian food.  One of the most popular Italian markets, and certainly my favorite, is Ferrara’s Market in the downtown area of Franklin.  Its original owner, Peter Ferrara opened his market in 1961, and his following climbed to astronomical levels. 

Today, Ferrara’s Market continues its journey, carrying on that fantastic reputation, and remains a Franklin favoriteIn 2001, Bob Dorr, a highly skilled and very knowledgeable meat cutter, purchased Ferrrara’s Market and expanded many of its offerings including catering, preparing a great variety of platters and holiday baskets of both food and fine Italian wine.  Peter’s grandson, Joe, is a familiar face helping to carry on his grandfather’s name.

There are many homemade specialties offered at Ferrara’s Market including chicken and beef bracioles, pasta fagioli, porketta, homemade Italian sausage, homemade spaghetti sauce made daily, stuffed veal roast, homemade pastas, tripe and a variety of calzones.  Lunch time is a busy time for Bob Dorr with the preparation of a variety of hot and cold subs and wraps.  The Porketta sub is spectacular, and you can’t compete with his veal parmesan sub that is so tender and cooked to perfection. 

Some of the other favorites in this market are Italian candy and cookies, stuffed cherry peppers, snail salad, green and black olives and a variety of beer and wine.  My family loves going to Ferrara’s Market, and I could buy everything the store offers.  Sometimes I do!!  The best phrase to describe the quality of the products and the service provided by Ferrara’s Market is “Molto Bene” and if you visit Bob Dorr, one day, you’ll understand why he’s a Franklin Favorite.   Ferrara’s Market is located at 20 West Central St in Franklin and the phone number is 508-520-4621.

In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
