Grand Central Market

3/6/2014

Since 1913, Grand Central Terminal has been a world-renowned landmark, beloved by New York City locals and tourists alike. And while all visitors marvel at its famous, ornate astronomical ceiling, iconic four-faced clock and stunning façade, the delights of Grand Central’s Market should never be overlooked.

For hungry travelers in any other major train terminus in the world, portable snacks are frequently limited to large chain fast food, quickie sandwiches, unhealthy donuts and drab coffee stands. But as with every other feature of the sixth most visited tourist attraction in the world, Grand Central’s Market goes above and beyond.

Today, you can pick up fresh fruits and vegetables at either end of the market, courtesy of Greenwich Produce and, in between, a smorgasbord of edible delights and specialty items. For healthy food fast, head to Dishes at Home for gourmet snacks, Oren’s Daily Roast will provide you with the java boost you need to get through the day, and Zaro’s Bakery and Li-Lac Chocolates are both must-visits for those with a sweet tooth.

Murray’s Cheese and Specialty Salami offer charcuterie to go, as well as nutritious yogurt and granola in the morning. Eli Zabar’s artisanal bakery offers up the highest quality fresh breads and pastries, and for those looking for something special to cook up at home, Pescatore’s and Wild Edibles offer a wide range of fresh seafood; Ceriello Fine Foods is a beef specialist; and Penzey’s carries every spice imaginable to spruce up your home cooking.

For Midtown residents with a taste for the finer things in life—like those who will reside in the forthcoming Halcyon condominium at East 51st and 2nd Avenue—the Grand Central Market is the place to grocery shop, but anyone visiting Grand Central, local or not, can find a little slice of heaven in this bustling food hub.

From Monday to Friday, the market doesn’t close until 9 p.m., which means even those of you who had to stay late in the office can stop by and pick up only the finest ingredients for dinner.
