A City-Style Amenity for Upstaters: Gourmet Grocery Delivery

Think of it as Fresh Direct, country style. Eureka Market, which I’m very excited to check out, has it’s own Direct service, and will stock your upstate New York vacation home fridge with groceries and local eggs and produce… and have it waiting for you for when you arrive, for a nominal delivery fee. Eureka, indeed! The market also has a bakery and cafe in Grahamsville, which caters to a variety of tastes: pizza, wings, and prosciutto, arugula, gruyere and tomato on brioche (a sandwich that costs only $5.50!).

On January 19th, Eureka Market will host its first “Meet & Eat,” to help both weekenders and full-timers get to know each other. “The idea is really more to set up a communal dining situation and let people expand their acquaintanceships,” they write. “It’s also a low-pressure way for singles to gather, so if they make a love connection, all the better!” If you’re interested in attending, send them a note.

By the way, the market is owned by the folks at Red Cottage, a company specializing in high-design rentals that our own Upstate Jane wrote up a while ago. They’re definitely a great resource for second homeowners upstate!

  1. Oh, I’ve just realized that I’ve been there. Stayed at one of Red Cottage’s vacation rentals last year. FYI, it is a dry area. BYOB if you plan on staying in that neck of the woods.
