Stignani's Market & Deli was a gourmet grocery store and restaurant located at 719 and 721 Broadway Street in Homewood's Edgewood neighborhood.

The shop was opened in the fall of 1997 by husband and wife, Richard and Bernie Stignani. Originally the restaurant only had 20 seats, but Stignani's expanded into the space next door in 2000 to get additional seating space.

In addition to gourmet groceries, the store also sold breads, fine wines, and fresh produce and served as the primary provider of produce for photo shoots by Cooking Light magazine. The deli was open for lunch and dinner.

Richard retired and closed the store the first week of January 2003 after learning Publix would be building a location nearby, as Publix sells many of the same brands sold by Stignani's.
