The family-run Palisades Market aims to bring back that nostalgic, corner store feel. It’s a grocery where people can shop for fresh, healthy food; but it’s also a community gathering place.
Keeping it local: Housed in a history-rich building which was home to a gas station in the 1930s, the business sells produce from area farms, fresh-baked breads, the much-loved Jane’s Ice Cream from Kingston, and coffees, to name a few items. There’s even a chef on the premises for homemade treats.
Chat and chew: Owner Dianne Walsh Fuhrmann says she has always enjoyed having healthy food and conversation together, and wanted to create a place where people could shop, sit, eat, and gather. The market also supports community-based fund-raisers; offers indoor and outdoor seating; and even hosts open mic nights.
