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.

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.
