Supermarkets in Briarcliff Manor and vicinity

Hi all,

I'll be moving to BC soon and wanted to know the scoop on supermarkets in the area.
I'm near the Stop and Shop in the Arcadian shopping center. Is it any good?

Also would like to know of good farmer's markets too.

Thanks for the recommendations!

  1. The Stop & Shop is brand new and will be your best bet. "Good" is a relative term and depending on what you're looking for it may be great or awful. There's an A&P on Pleasantville Road that was a Food Emporium until recently and S&S is probably better than that. There's a nice gourmet-like place called Zeytinia in Croton-on-Hudson which has nice (if pricey) stuff. There is a C-Town in Ossining (Croton Avenue) that is interesting, lots of ethnic stuff, good prices on produce.

    Ossining has a nice farmers market on Saturdays.

    1. Zeytinia is actually quite reasonable for many items. There's a farmers market in Ossining on Saturday mornings, and one in Croton right by the Rte. 129 exit (close to Zeytinia) on Wednesdays from 2-7 p.m. Pleasantville also has a Saturday morning farmers market.

      Another place worth checking out is the Four Seasons market in Ossining, which has really interesting stuff at good prices.

        I thin Four Seasons is the same as C-Town MisterBill referenced. I agree, it's a good place esp. for latin american veggies and other items. I love Zeytinia and while it's prices are high on staples like crackers and cookies and things, the vegetable prices are good, and they're always selling some sort of olive oil at a good price. They have good bread and a nice selection of dried fruits, nuts and things so you do have to go to Mrs. Greens for that.

          Yes, I buy produce at Zeytinia (when I manage to be in the area) because it's pretty reasonably priced. But C-Town is cheaper (although sometimes the quality is not that great).

          Elisa, I did not know about the farmers market in Croton.. I should check it out.

          1. re: MisterBill2

            It's a lovely little market, three regular produce farmers plus an organic one, beef farmer, fish, wine, two bread purveyors, fabulous pickles, tart baker. One of the farmers has eggs but it isn't on his list (second farmer on the right as you walk in).

            Best place to park is at the strip shopping center by the Chase Bank (right by Memphis Mae's BBQ), then walk to the market.

      2. stop and shop in arcadian is a big, new, average super market imho, ap fresh replaced the food emporium in chilmark, and it has improved..the farmers market on saturdsays in ossining is great, as is the one in tarrytown and pleasantville, four season has an interesting mix of product indeed, also in white plains is whole foods, and iron tomato, arthur ave is 30 mins away fyi

          Good recommendations, but I wouldn't push it on Arthur Ave. being only 30 minutes away, especially not if there's any traffic. Within 30 minutes, though, are some of the Trader Joe's locations and also Stew Leonard's in Yonkers.

          1. re: Elisa515

            Turco's in Yorktown Heights, if you have a reason to be over that way, has good bread, pasta, cheeses, etc.

              arthur ave only 30 mins away yep considering normal driving conditions of course

                I've taught at Fordham and never ever made it there that fast (and I didn't have to go at rush hour)--and that's without having to find parking.

                I believe Ellie is looking for local shopping.

                1. re: Elisa515

                  Thanks everyone. Glad to hear that Stop and Shop is okay. Very excited that I have a few farmer's markets to choose from. I also haven't been near a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's for over two years. Glad I can visit those occasionally too.

                  1. re: Elisa515

                    its 30 mins away,true thats not local but it worth a trip every now and then on weekends a reeze you pull in the munipal lot you give the guy there some cash he handles the meters and away you shop for weekdays parking never an issue
