Entering the J. P. Gifford Market & Catering Company, the aroma of fresh coffee and the lure of newly baked goods greets you. And that is just the beginning...

This food emporium, founded in March 2010 by owners Mike Moriarty and James Neunzig, has a knowledgeable staff, dedicated to consistent and reliable customer service.

Like an old world market in Paris or Rome, or a new world one in San Francisco or New York, you'll find this a source of unique items, and a gathering place for friends. Visitors to Litchfield County will find this gateway location, on Main Street in Kent, a welcome and satisfying place to stop.

Produce, meats and poultry are delivered daily. We buy locally grown products whenever possible. Deserts, muffins and breads are baked on the premises each day.

From casual parties to large events, the catering company provides full-service event coordination and plannning. Our dedicated staff will ensure the success of your one-of-a-kind event with attention to detail, personalized service and creative menus.

Good food, pure and simple, is the J. P. Gifford promise.
