Shop For Thanksgiving at These Upper West Side Grocery Stores

Thanksgiving is almost here, and that means one thing – your state-of-the-art Sagamore kitchen is about to get some serious use! But before you start logging hours cooking on Nov. 26, you’ll have to fill up your shopping cart.

If you’re looking for top-quality meats, vegetables and more to serve to your family on Thanksgiving, look no further than these grocery stores located near your Sagamore apartment. These stores offer huge selections, great customer service, fresh fare and more!

Citarella Gourmet Market, located at 2135 Broadway, New York which is five minutes from your Sagamore apartment, has been a family-run source for gourmet groceries since 1912, which also sells deli items and baked goods.

The market began growing in 1983 when Joe Gurrera bought Citarella, a beloved neighborhood seafood shop on the Upper West Side which had been around since 1912. At the time, the store was small, occupying just a fraction of the space that Citarella’s flagship location does today, but Joe saw it as an opportunity to build his love of seafood in this local treasure.

Zabar’s, located at 2245 Broadway, New York which is a 10 minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a gourmet emporium specializing in smoked fish, caviar, coffee, cheese, kitchen goods and housewares.

Louis and Lillian Zabar started the business in 1934, opening a 22-foot-wide shop along Broadway at West 80th Street. Louis was a stickler for quality, roasting his own coffee and personally visiting smokehouses to sample and inspect the fish. The principles and practices of the founders continue to guide the business today as they respect their customers, never stint on quality and offer fair value.
