Alltown Fresh Opens in Schenectady
Alltown Fresh™, the fresh convenience market, commemorated the grand opening of its newest location in Schenectady with a ribbon cutting on August 20. Located at 1410-1424 Erie Blvd, the new market features fresh food choices and made-to-order meals including organic, natural, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options made with locally sourced ingredients.
“We are extremely excited to bring the Alltown Fresh concept to Schenectady. The opening of this location marks our fifth new store in under two years, and our first market in New York. Our core belief is that nobody should have to sacrifice healthy, fresh food options for convenience, therefore each item on our menu is carefully selected to meet the needs of our guests,” said Eric Slifka, CEO of Global Partners LP. “We understand how difficult the past few months have been, and our team was quick to implement contactless ways to shop including curbside pickup of our entire menu, crates of fresh groceries, and meal prep kits. Given the current times are still uncertain, we hope the Schenectady community can look to us to pick up their morning coffee ahead of a video conference or call ahead to order dinner for their family.”
The new 4,800 square foot market focuses on creating an elevated, farmstand-like experience by providing a menu of healthy options such as made-to-order all-day breakfast, fresh salads, smoothies, sandwiches, bowls, and more. Guests have endless options such as the “Southwest Scramble” made with cage-free eggs with cream, roasted peppers, corn, onions, cilantro, lime, black bean smash, and salsa roja, or they can opt for the “Fresh Falafel” filled with vegetables including eggplant, arugula, tomato, and cucumber, along with falafel fritters, garlic hummus, and zhoug on a whole wheat wrap. Alltown Fresh also features organic fair-trade coffee with locally roasted beans from Connecticut featuring custom blends from around the world. The beans are pressed on-demand under five bars of pressure for maximum flavor, then brewed to guests’ taste for the freshest cup of hot or iced coffee.
In addition, Alltown Fresh features outdoor seating, groceries, WiFi, pet relief areas, traditional snack options, and phone charging stations all in a rush-free environment. Alltown Fresh in Schenectady will be open daily 24/7. The kitchen will be open 6 a.m. -4 p.m. For more information on Alltown Fresh, visit them at 1410-1424 Erie Blvd, Schenectady NY, 12305 or at https://alltownfresh.com/.
