Nourishment Up for Grabs
A prepared foods section offers a large selection of grab-and-go products, including sushi, organic rotisserie chickens, salads, soups, stir-fry and pizza. Meanwhile, a convenience market on street level provides customers a quick shopping experience without the need to navigate the full store, offering grab-and-go meal and snack options, baked goods, desserts and cold beverages.
The seafood counter features a variety of made-in-house offerings, including Everything Bagel seasoned Atlantic salmon, lobster rolls and lox sandwiches, as well as selections from local producers, such as seafood cakes from Lagniappe Foods and jumbo lump crab cakes from Star of the Sea.
Whole Foods’ Manhattan West store offers an extensive selection of more than 400 beers, including 150 craft beers from local producers such as Three’s Brewing. The department also features a Brewery Fresh Bar, which serves limited-release beers, local craft brews, wine, kombucha and ciders—all in cans.
The sleek specialty foods section is brimming with ready-to-eat cheese boards, as well as a selection of more than 50 local cheeses overseen by an in-store American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional, who can offer expertise and recommendations for any request or occasion. The department also features a variety of pairings, such as local jams from Trade Street Jam and crackers from Hungry Bird Eats.
