New generation at the market

Since 1927, local family-owned Sautter’s Market has served generations of Toledo families. This past spring, Sautter’s announced the next generation of the Sautter family to join the team and lead the business. David Sautter has begun overseeing operations at the Sylvania store with his father, Jim. David previously worked in real estate in Chicago and is glad to be back home. “I’ve always kind of missed it,” said David. “I like good food, I like good wine, and I enjoy serving people. This is what I like to do. It’s in my blood.”
