Mike is a very proud Memphian who learned fruits and vegetables early on in life. Taking the memories and knowledge from riding on his grandfather’s produce truck, Mike was able to turn a love of fruits and vegetables into a successful business. A proud graduate of the University of Memphis, Mike jumped into the produce business with nothing to his name but an old pickup truck and the determination to make it work. He would head down to the now extinct produce market on Scott street, fill his truck with various items, and deliver them throughout the city. M. Palazola has come a long way from that first truck, but we still hold on to our initial roots as a small family business where everyone works hard together and makes it happen. When Mike is not driving M. Palazola further into the future, he loves spending time with his wife, his three children, and his 2 grandchildren.
