Fred the Butcher

Changing up your grocery shopping routine is a way to keep things fun and interesting. In the past few years the Capital Region has sprouted many new options like Shop Rite, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, and Fresh Market to spice things up. Sometimes for a small shopping I pick up my groceries at a farmers market, or Cardona’s. My most recent discovery was Fred the Butcher in Clifton Park [1473 U.S. 9, Clifton Park, NY 12065], a fantastic middle sized market with just about anything you might need, and a lot of things you didn’t know you even wanted!

They also have their own line of different products such as sauce, coffee, and many miscellaneous items. You can find a number of local products from all over the Capital Region and beyond here, a few of my favorite finds included: lemon cookies from Villa Italia, Utica Coffee, Adirondack Barkeater Chocolate, and Fred the Butcher’s own black bean dip – pure local goodness. I also saw some of my favorites such as Cookie Factory cookies, Gatherers granola, and local bread.
