Neighborhood Spotlight: Wholey’s Market

For members of the Pittsburgh community, there’s no place quite like Wholey’s. Just a quick walk from the Cork Factory, residents will find a seemingly endless supply of fresh meat and seafood; from your go-to favorites to rare and adventurous species. Wholey’s market is conveniently located in the Strip District, right by many of our other beloved neighborhood vendors, and if for some reason you haven’t yet checked it out, you’re in for a treat.

The Robert Wholey Company was founded way back in 1912, when Robert L. Wholey sold live poultry, meat, sausages, and coffee out of his store in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. Since then, the family business has grown exponentially, and lucky for us, its headquarters landed right in our backyard. Over the past century, the Wholey family has incorporated a wider and wider range of products for customers to delight in, and even established Wholey International to keep up with increasing demand for products distributed nationwide.

So, what might you find with a visit to Wholey Market? The list is endless, but we’ll highlight some favorites. Wholey’s specializes in freshly prepared seafood delights, like their enormous crab legs, fried cod sandwiches, and lobster mac and cheese. They even have an in-house sushi chef for expertly prepared rolls and sashimi. If you can’t wait to get home to eat it, we don’t blame you, and the market conveniently offers in-store seating for customers to enjoy their meals (and opt to come back for more). For the carnivores out there, Wholey’s offers delicious wings, chicken pot pie, and the finest cuts of steak around.

If you’re looking to dine at home, Wholey’s has got you covered there, too. You can pick from the miles of aisles of fresh fish and meat a la carte, or you can opt for dinner packages, including their famous surf n’ turf special, and their delicious griller sampler that’s perfect for backyard barbecues. The market also offers gift packages, homemade sauces and spices, and their very own fudge for that pesky sweet tooth at the end of a good meal.
