Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Don't get stuck in the kitchen this year, let Lucy's do the cooking. View our complete Thanksgiving menu HERE.
Fall is just around the corner, school has begun and the weather is beginning to crisp. Starting off the Fall season is the Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashanah followed by the Sabbath, Yom Kippur. This year Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated between Wednesday September 20th and Friday September 24th. This holiday marks the beginning of the 10 days of penitence culminating in Yom Kippur where the Jewish community fasts from September 29th – 30th.
Lucy’s Jewish New Year and “Break the Fast” menus both offer a wide range of entrees, starters and desserts. Whether you’re celebrating with just a few members of the family, or a whole crowd Lucy’s has you covered.

Every year the owners and managers at Lucy’s venture into the city for The Fancy Food show, which is exactly what it says on the tin: A Fancy Food Show. Thousands of vendors from all over the world come to this event to show case their products. Some companies are brand new, just dipping their toes into the vast food world while others are fully submerged companies that have been successful for decades.
One day at this event isn’t nearly enough time to try everything, but we do our best to get the full experience. This year we tried many new and unique types of food including, tofu jerky, hemp popcorn, dried fruit, salmon seasoning, salt and peppers, chocolate and of course loads and loads of cheese. The variety of food at this event is staggering, so it’s always good to cleanse the palate between samples.
We left the show with both our bellies and our minds stuffed to the brim. We walked off our new ideas through the beautiful Pride Parade and left New York fully satisfied. Included are some of the pictures from the Fancy Food Show and our day in New York. Keep an eye out for the new products coming to Lucy’s soon!
One of the best parts about working in the ever growing food industry is getting to try new products on a regular basis. All over the world people are making things that have never been done before, as well as individualizing age old recipes. While we don’t always get to travel the globe in search of the next big thing, weekend getaways have become a hunt for delicious and locally grown products. From the Berkshires, to Pennsylvania and all the way up to Vermont, the North East has got some amazing stuff that you can’t find in your everyday grocery store. And when the ingredients and labor are local it’s a win win for the environment and the consumer.

Lucy’s Kitchen and Market prioritizes using the freshest ingredients. It matters to us that the food we offer is high-quality, and often local. Zone 7, a business specializing in freshness and locality, provides us with farmed products ranging from produce to eggs. The benefits to eggs from Nature’s Own Farm (in place of commercial eggs) are endless. Chickens raised free-range on farms are healthier than those who lay factory eggs, which naturally makes their eggs more wholesome. Free of restrictive cages, farm chickens have the opportunity to spend time outdoors with ample space and sunlight, supplying them with Vitamin D and other nutrients that factory chickens lack. Chickens on Nature’s Own Farm are not given antibiotics or growth hormones. Visually, yolks from farm-raised chickens have a more vibrantly orange color, whereas factory ones are pale yellow and less sturdy. Plus, the coop to carton to plate time for farm eggsis dramatically less than commercial eggs. Check out our Facebook page for a video of Nature’s Own cleaning their eggs!
