Al Minero joined the
Sonoma Market family in June 2008. Al's grocery career began in 1974 at
a San Francisco Safeway, where he quickly worked his way up from bagger
to head clerk.
For Al, the grocery business is "people business." Al prides himself on knowing customers' names. His philosophy - "You can never give a smile away. You'll always get it back" - is a perfect fit for Sonoma/Glen Ellen Village Market.
Al is also thrilled to be representing our stores, which are committed to quality, organics and local products.
Al, a dedicated family man who recently became a proud grandpa, has been known to go home to his wife of 35 years with some of Sonoma Market's wonderful food to-go, whether for an easy family dinner or some gourmet entertaining.
