I live in the Sound Shore area of Westchester County, NY which is about 45 minutes away from the heart of Manhattan and about 10 minutes away from downtown Greenwich, CT. In this area, we have some of the best fresh food in the world at our fingertips. Gourmet and specialty stores are available to us whereas not too far away in other parts of the county, they are practically non-exisitant. When you are lucky enough to live in an area like this where butchers and fish mongers can still be found, then you have no excuse to not only shop local to support them, but to take advantage and enjoy the quality local ingredients at the same time.

This is a collection of my favorite specialty stores in the Westchester & Greenwich area that I recommend with confidence.
