About Freshtown Marketplace
We are part of the Foodtown supermarket cooperative, which is a group of over 65 stores, sharing our buying power to bring you the lowest possible prices. Different families own different stores throughout the New York / New Jersey / Pennsylvania region.
We are a family-run business, owned and operated by the Katz family. We have been in the grocery store business since 1956 when Paul Katz opened his first supermarket in the Bronx (on 204th Street). His son Sydney joined him in 1962 and grandsons Daniel and Noah joined in the late 1980s. Today, along with our great associates, we operate 13 supermarkets in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, The Bronx, Putnam, Dutchess, and Delaware counties.
We love the grocery business. Our ultimate goal is to offer you a great, friendly, clean, warm place to shop. We have all the advantages of a big chain with competitive prices (being part of the larger cooperative) plus the benefits of being a family-run business. We must add that we are very thankful to all our associates who work so hard and do a great job stocking our stores and taking care of you, our customers. We could never do it without them !! Thank you to all our associates !!
