Joe Patti's Seafood Company originated in 1931 from the back porch of Captain Joe and Anna's modest dwelling. In the early days, the business consisted of selling fresh bay shrimp caught by Captain Joe and sold by Anna, primarily for fish bait. This continued through 1935, when the name Joe Patti's Fish Market was established.
Joe and Anna met in Pensacola in 1928. Although they both were immigrants from Sicily and born less than ten miles apart, this was the first time they had ever met.
From 1935 until today, Joe Patti's has become world renown for its fresh and frozen seafood. People from every state and almost every country have joined in on the excitement of shopping or just browsing around at Joe Patti's for the cleanest, freshest, and largest selection of seafood.
