Hudson Valley Markets
Local grocers step up to the plate as shoppers yearn for more than just a huge selection
(page 3 of 5)
After working for Whole Foods for 17 years, Otto’s Market owner Otto Leuschel was looking for a change of pace; he found his calling in Columbia County and opened this community staple in 2008.
Best of both worlds: A variety of brand-name items can be found here, but also a wide selection of locally sourced milk, coffee, meats, cheeses, and more. Deli goods and catering are available.
Cool history: Between 1927 and the 1940s, the building was a market owned by Tracy Osborn Rockefeller. On its opening day as Otto’s Market, Rockefeller’s daughter, Edna Rockefeller Salpaugh, paid a visit to the place from which she once delivered groceries.
From marketplace to cyberspace: The shop’s Web site includes a pick-of-the-week listing, recipes, and a section for kids.
Otto’s Market. 215 Main St., Germantown. 518-537-7200
