What began as a butcher shop in the early 1920’s has grown into a nationally-acclaimed, award-winning market; often referred to as a landmark within the community. Palmer’s is known for outstanding customer service, superior quality and unique hard-to-find products.
In-store you’ll find an outstanding array of house made prepared foods; the freshest produce, meats and seafood; hard-to-find imported and domestic gourmet foods; plus a complete selection of everyday groceries—all merchandised in a 20,000 square foot spotless environment. Add in the unique offerings found in our gift shop, kitchen store, bakery, flower shop and catering division and you can see why we have been in business since 1921.
Palmer’s Produce department carries a beautiful selection of local, organic, and traditional produce from growing fields around the world. We go through every single box of produce upon arrival to guarantee the quality our customers expect. During the growing season, we source as many items as we can locally. We have established relationships with 3 farms who grow exclusively for Palmer’s Market: Sherwood Farm and Silverman’s Farm in Easton, CT and Organic produce from Avalon Farm in North Salem, NY. We are very proud of the relationships we have established with our local farms and are so happy to offer this incredible produce to you!
There are skills and trades in life that cannot be taught in a classroom or textbook, but are handed down from father to son, grandfather to grandson. In the 1920s, the Palmer family began handing down the craftsmanship of fine butchery—the experience to discern the best quality meat and the skill to carve it, trim it, and deliver it to their customers.
Palmer’s Butcher Shop carries the highest quality meats and seafood inside their full-service Butcher Shop. Everything is hand-trimmed, cut & ground to your exact specifications. We carry a large selection of Prime, Grass Fed and Angus Beef. We grind all of our beef in house several times per day. You will also find organic chicken, fresh duck and heritage varieties of pork. Our seafood is delivered fresh daily and sourced locally in season.
We’re a traditional supermarket, but we are so much more! At 20,000 s.f., we are the perfect size store. Throughout our 12 aisles, you will find an excellent selection of everyday items at a competitive price. Looking for an item you can’t find anywhere, bring it to us and we will find it for you.
