Double Tragedy For Stiles Market

Stiles is a popular local market. Recently, the family that owns it — and that treats all of Westport like family — suffered 2 devastating blows.

Last month, Michael Spitaleri — one of the owners, and son of Joe, the butcher — died unexpectedly. He was 49.

Michael Spitaleri and family.

He commuted here every day, from Long Island. Customers — who became friends — have grieved with his family.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral and other costs.

Stiles also operates a New York City market. On Sunday, that store — on 53rd Street and 9th Avenue — was destroyed when the building collapsed on it.

Stiles’ many Westport fans are thinking of both stores, and everyone associated with them, at this tough time.

    So sad to hear this. Great neighborhood store full of helpful, friendly folks. We’re in there several times a week, and love to support this family run business.
    Condolence to the family. Michael will be missed!
