North Shore Farms, the Popular Long Island Market Opens First Westchester Location in Mamaroneck, NY
Community leaders gathered recently at 817 Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck to celebrate the opening of North Shore Farms’ new store location. Shari Ascher, Advocacy & Community Liaison to County Executive George Latimer, presented a proclamation and was joined by New York State Senator Shelley Mayer, Deputy Supervisor and Town Councilwoman Jaine Elkind Eney, Mamaroneck Village Mayor Tom Murphy, Trustees of Mamaroneck Village, and Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce Vice President Richard Leimgruber and other representatives of the Chamber came together to mark the opening with a socially distanced ribbon cutting. While celebrations are certainly muted in the current times, it was a welcome sign to see a fresh food market opening in the new Mamaroneck Center space.
The locally-hired North Shore Farms team placed the finishing touches on its aisles and opened the doors at 9 AM to a line that was appropriately spaced for the current public health climate. Employees welcomed and cheered for the new customers as they entered. The first 10 customers received $25 North Shore Farms gift cards.
“We’re excited to bring North Shore Farms to Mamaroneck and to Westchester County,” said George Tsiatis, a spokesperson for the company. “We are thrilled to join such a welcoming an vibrant community, and we look forward to serving them now and in the future.”
The new Mamaroneck store is North Shore Farms’ ninth location, and its first in Westchester. The store is open 7 days a week, from 7AM-10PM.
Since 2003, North Shore Farms has spread its mission of better living through better eating across Long Island, Eastern Queens, and Westchester by providing nine communities – Port Washington, Glen Cove, Great Neck, Mineola, Commack, North Bellmore, Hauppauge, Whitestone, and Mamaroneck– with fresh and healthy produce, organic items, and popular grocery products.
