There’s a grocery coming to the old Nissan dealership on Route 59 in Nyack — and people are pretty excited about it. Our shopping reporter, Mary Shustack, met with owner Andrew Poma Jr. the other day, and he took her on a tour.
He says the market will stock fresh meats, cheeses, fish, prepared foods, sushi, freshly roasted coffee and more, all in a market-like setting. Seriously. From her photos, it looks like Les Halles meets Istanbul.
He’ll have butchers, fishmongers (fresh local fish, too!), sushi chefs, and a cafe. I loved his quote from the story that he’ll try to get local, artisanal foods as well as imported goods.
Mary’s written a story that will publish in Wednesday’s food section, but you can check out her sneak peek with photos over on her Just Browsing blog. Poma says Old World Marke should open in mid-August. I can’t wait!
Meantime, here’s a photo sent in by blog reader Michael S. Thanks Michael!
