Hyde Park Produce was taken over in 1996 by Larry and his father Lawrence “Yoyo” Damico. Yoyo had been in the produce business since he was a grade-schooler in the 1940s and Larry started to work with his Dad when he was only 14 years old.
The first store grew and grew thanks to our wonderfully loyal customers who then encouraged us to move to a bigger location. With our customer’s support the new Hyde Park Produce opened on January 23, 2008 in our current location. Then a couple of years ago, Larry, III, aka “Little Larry”, joined his grandfather and father at HPP. We are a family and we hope you will feel that when you walk through our doors. We welcome our customers to “our Dream!”
