It’s tough locating quality food markets with a healthy variety of fresh vegetables and organics in New York City. Amish Market, a “gourmet market group” with several locations in the city fills the grocery store void in several locations and provides an alternative to the overcrowded, frenetic Whole Foods Markets throughout Manhattan.

I stopped at the Amish Market on East 45th Street recently to stock up the kitchen in my studio hotel room. Beautiful baked goods and desserts were on display at the entrance along with an array of breads. Fresh brewed coffee and a sweet make Amish Market an ideal spot for a continental breakfast. They don’t bake items there but the onion bread I picked up was fresh and delicious. Plenty of produce is available along with some organics at reasonable prices. I was impressed with their collection of vinegars and olive oils, truffle oil – even avocado oil.  A grocery shopper with a flair for gourmet cooking will everything here, including fresh seafood and meats.

A small collection of fine cookware, chocolates, and food baskets make the Amish Market a great place to pick up a gift.   Hot and cold food bars (about $8 a pound) in their cafe and a sandwich counter near the entrance are popular spots for lunch or a light dinner.

Amish Market caters parties and also delivers light breakfasts, lunches and dinners from its other locations. Order online and find other Amish Markets at: http://orderamishmarketnyc.com/FoodDelivery/RestaurantLocations.m
