Met Foodmarkets, also referred to as Met Foods, is a chain of independently owned and operated storefront style supermarkets, which operates in the New York Metropolitan Area. The majority of its stores are located in the four boroughs of New York City outside Manhattan and carry a variety of ethnic products. They currently operate 27 stores throughout New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.

Founded in 1941 in Syosset, Long Island, it was purchased by its current owner DiGiorgio Corporation in 1964-65. The private label brand White Rose Brand (also previously owned by DiGiorgio and now owned by C&S Wholesale Grocers) is common in all Met Foods stores along with Met Foods' less common Met Foods' Brand.[1]

Met Foods' current company headquarters is located in Carteret, New Jersey.[2]
