The Montclair Center BID is proud to announce that Brookdale Shop Rite will be participating in the Crane Park Market selling a selection of goods on both market days starting Thursday, Aug. 10. Among the items that Brookdale Shop Rite will sell are nuts and nut butters, whole- and multi-grain breads, fresh fruit, paper goods, detergent and canned goods. The Brookdale Shop Rite will be joined by Crane Park’s new farmer, The Farm at Glenwood Mountain.
The Crane Park Market is located at Glenridge and Greenwood Avenues, behind Lackawanna Plaza, in downtown Montclair. The market hours are Thursdays from 3 pm to 8 pm and Sundays between 12 pm and 5 pm.
“This is such an exciting partnership,” said Israel Cronk, Executive Director. “I am so glad to work with Brookdale Shoprite and The Farm at Glenwood Mountain to further help our community get easier access to food and basic goods.”
“Brookdale ShopRite is committed to serving the community that has embraced and supported us for generations, and working together to strengthen our neighborhoods for generations to come,” said Jerry Manley, Director of Operations at Brookdale ShopRite.
Jessica Serdikoff, nutritionist at Brookdale ShopRite added, “Every single time we make a decision about food — what to purchase, what to prepare, what to eat — we have the power to change the course of our lives; and together we can make that decision a little simpler, a little easier, and every bit as delicious.”
Led by third generation grocer Neil Greenstein, Brookdale ShopRite has been a family business for more than 60 years. The company currently owns and operates the Brookdale ShopRite in Bloomfield, NJ and the new ShopRite of Newark.
The Farm at Glenwood Mountain, a family farm is located on 170 acres in the mountains of northern New Jersey, will be bringing escarole, green okra, chard, eggplant, fennel, cucumbers and in coming weeks, tomatoes. They also have a farm market at 1801 County Road 565 in Sussex.
“We started this farm so all families could know where their food comes from,” said Steve MacLean of the Farm at Glenwood Farms, “Now, we are excited to share our passion for what we do with the residents of Montclair and the surrounding areas.”
