Operation of D'Errico's Market in Worcester taken over by Everett-based meat supplier

A 77-year-old Worcester meat market and grocer is under new management.

Vitória Meat Market, a company based in Everett with additional locations in Revere, Peabody, Lynn, and Allston, has taken over administration of D'Errico's Market on East Central Street in Worcester, according to a banner displayed on the front of the storefront. 

D'Errico's Market has been operating in Worcester since 1947. The company was purchased by Roridgo DeOliveira in 2017 from his father, which was followed by an attempt to expand the business to additional locations.

Neither DeOliveira or Vitória could be immediately reached for comment on Tuesday.

The company opened an additional location on Cambridge Street in Worcester in 2020, but that location closed in 2022. An additional location in Leominster opened in the fall of 2021 has since closed. A fourth location in Sturbridge was proposed, but it’s unclear if that location ever opened; the Google listing for the Sturbridge location lists it as permanently closed.

The Worcester location on East Central Street is still owned by JL Bread & Butter, Inc., a Charlton-based corporation managed by Ladijane Evangelista, the wife of Joseph Evangelista, the former owner of D’Errico’s who passed away in 2019 and DeOliveira’s father.

Vitória is a Brazilian meat market incorporated in 2014. It was opened by Roberto Da Silveira, a Brazilian immigrant who arrived in the United States in 2012 and formerly lived in Worcester, according to a 2014 article published in the Brazilian Times, a Portuguese language publication serving the Brazilian-American community.
