The (short) wait is over!
52nd Street Market, the Upper Lawrenceville grocery and sandwich shop is re-opening today after a transition in ownership, and a few weeks of being closed for renovations.
Original owners Deirdre Kane and Dora Walmsley recently sold the business Maria Hernandez and Ana Collins, a pair of sisters, along with Rob Collins, Ana’s husband, who has been the owner of Bryant Street Market in Highland Park for the last 20 years. While there will be a few changes at the store, the shop will still be a place to stop by for locally-made food products and coffee.
They’ll also still be offering a full menu of fresh-made sandwiches, including classics like Italian hoagies, Chicken Salad, and traditional Reubens, plus special selections like the ‘Yinzer,’ made with Isaly’s chipped ham and Deidre’s Tuna, a tuna-salad nod to the previous owner. Soon, the market will also introduce a menu of breakfast sandwiches.
Rob Collins says that while the store was closed, it got a complete refresh, with new shelves, a new deli case, and a fresh coat of paint. The market will now also offer an expanded grocery line.
“We’ll be offering more conventional grocery items, including organic items, and gluten-free items,” Rob Collins says. “We’ll still have lots of local products – as much local as we can pack on the shelves, actually.”
The includes Leona’s Ice Cream sandwiches, and Lux Artisan Chocolate Bars.
The shop will also offer a selection of grab-and-go deli options, like house-made tuna salad and chicken salad, along with potato salad, egg salad, and more.
The hours for the new 52nd Street Market will be Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
