Our History

It all started with a lemon…

Our Founder Erasmo Armata came from Sicily in the late 1890’s through Ellis Island as a poor immigrant. Erasmo settled in Manhattan and frequented the Fruit Auction in lower Manhattan (later the location of the World Trade Center) where he purchased lemons and sold them out of a burlap bag he carried on his back as he walked the streets of Manhattan.

Our Produce

We work with the most recognizable brands of fresh produce in the industry, as well as offering our own E. Armata label.
