HADDONFIELD ROOTS

FROM THE TEAM BEHIND VALENTE’S

The Fare Porter began as a concept roughly four years prior to its opening. While growing Valente’s Cucina, partners Marcello De Feo and Johnnie Reynolds took the concept and refined it to its present day form. Elevated burgers, unique milkshakes, hand-cut fries, and non-alcoholic cocktails became the focus of The Fare Porter.

The initial intention behind the restaurant was to build something that would keep Haddonfield residents in Haddonfield on the weekend, so that they could enjoy a night of dining and shopping in a beautiful, boutique downtown district. We want to support local, small business owners and help others do so as well by presenting a new and unique culinary option to an already diverse dining scene.

THE PROOF OF CONCEPT

SMALL FOOTPRINT, BIG AMBITIONS

Right in the heart of Downtown Haddonfield, The Fare Porter is building its foundation from the ground up. Starting with a small footprint and a tight menu, we intend to prove our worth and grow organically into a full-fledged family restaurant with attractions for adults and kids alike.

Our mission is to:

  • Build a dining destination in Downtown Haddonfield

  • Create a mostly booze-free space — including wines from Auburn Road Vineyards — that gives residents a place to relax at night

  • Develop unique shakes, fries, and burgers for the kids in town to enjoy after school

  • Provide an upscale but accessible option for dine-in, takeout, and delivery
