Market fresh food has long been absent from Tarrytown’s South End ever since the Stop and Shop closed on South Broadway several years ago. But now, residents and new customers are pleased to have the convenience of shopping for fresh whole foods, basic groceries, and deli provisions at Harvest Field Market in the Bridge Plaza Shopping Center at the corner of 119 and South Broadway.
Ever since the store’s opening in mid-November, a multitude of grocery savings abound, as evidenced by the store’s flyer featuring meat specials, frozen food and staple offerings. Fresh fruit greets customers at the entrance to a well-planned, easy shopping experience. The first floor is devoted to dairy offerings, juices, canned goods, cereals, meats and poultry, a well-stocked deli, jams, rice, sodas and so much more. Downstairs gives shoppers a feel for Fairway in New York’s Upper West Side or Harlem. A vast floor plan provides shoppers with an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, spices, nuts and candied fruit, packages of sparkling and spring water, paper goods, broth choices, pots and pans, breads and pitas.
Harvest Field Market offers artisanal tortillas, a variety of peppers, plus great deals on fresh fruits and vegetables. So, if 10 limes for a dollar or 8 lemons for 2 dollars is your cup of tea, head to Harvest Field Market where easy and plentiful parking await plus friendly service. Steve Kesti, Manager, said he is, ”Happy to be here. It’s such a nice neighborhood.” And, residents in Tarrytown’s South end and Irvington are pleased to have the market’s offerings so near to hand.
