Another Whole Foods is opening in NYC, this time in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood at 63 Madison Ave. (between 27th St. and 28th St.).
At a whopping 54,000 square feet, it will feature more than 1,000 carefully-selected local products plus a Café Grumpy coffee bar and the bar/restaurant “NoMad 63” by Whole Foods Market!
Some of those new local suppliers and products include:
- Whole bean Vietnamese coffee from Nguyen Coffee Supply
- Frozen assorted bagels from Black Seed Bagels
- Salads from Gotham Greens’ New York City farms
- Plant-based specialty cheese from Rind
- Turmeric and chai elixirs from Anjali’s Cup
- Specialty chocolate bars from North South Confections
- Craft beer from Talea Beer Co, Barrier Brewing and Three’s Brewing
A press release also states that the “store’s metropolitan feel nods to nearby New York landmarks like the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park.”
The new store is set to open on Wednesday, June 1, and besides all the grocery items, also includes a quick-service Mediterranean venue called Za’atar, with locally sourced falafel from Yosi Kosher Kitchen and pitas from Angel Bakeries (along with the coffee shop & bar/restaurant mentioned above).
In an effort to support the local NYC community, Whole Foods will donate $9,000 and an array of fresh food to the Rethink Food organization, sponsor the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Pollinator Picnic dedicated to celebrating native North American pollinators, and support the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District’s public art and fitness programming with a $15,000 donation and a flower wall pop-up event.
