HISTORY OF BIG SAMS
Paul LoPresti came from a long line of farmers; workers of the land who understood and valued the cycles of the seasons and the fruits of labour on the land. Shortly after he migrated from Sicily in the 1950s, he put these instincts and his love of a challenge to good use. Paul began a small business in the Sunshine Market. There, he built a reputation as a charismatic operator who knew his fresh produce and took great pride in supplying it to the people of the western suburbs.
