Chavez Supermarket

Chavez Supermarket is a full-service, family-owned grocery store chain committed to being a leading retailer of Mexican and Latin American grocery products in the Bay Area. By continually offering only the best in fine meats, fresh produce, baked goods, and a wide variety of everyday grocery items combined with friendly and helpful customer service, Chavez Supermarket remains a trusted community partner since 1984.


In 1984, Mr. David Chavez, a Mexican immigrant from Michoacán, Mexico made his dream of owning his own business a reality by opening his first store – Chavez Meat Market –in Redwood City. This marked the beginning of what would soon become a growing chain of supermarkets that cater to the needs of the Hispanic community.

Offering fresh cuts of meats, traditional groceries, and home-style Mexican food in its Taqueria, Chavez Meat Market provided its customers with products that were difficult to come by in the Bay Area at the time – including tortillas, mangoes, and cotija cheese.

As a result of excellent customer service and offering quality products that were in high demand in the area, Chavez Meat Market became successful enough to enable Mr. Chavez to open a second location in Menlo Park, California, in 1993.

Continuing the tradition of offering the best quality meats, produce, and traditional Mexican and Latin American products, Chavez Supermarket continued to grow through the addition of six more locations in the Bay Area – including in San Jose, Hayward, and Sunnyvale – expanding the Chavez Supermarket chain to a total of eight stores.

In 2000, Chavez Supermarket began offering fresh baked goods after opening its own bakery, at which Mexican sweet breads are made and delivered daily to each of its stores.

Mr. Chavez and his family continue to uphold their commitment to quality products and services in every Chavez Supermarket location.
