The second Alltown Fresh convenience market in the state of Connecticut has opened.
Located at 1941 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden, the farmstand-style, 3,800-s.f. market is designed to provide customers with healthy fresh food and beverages on the go. Alltown Fresh menu items include all-day breakfast, fresh salads, sandwiches and bowls. The items can be ordered via touch-screen kiosks. They are then made at the market’s open kitchen. The menu includes:
Breakfast Anytime—Choices include the “Green Smash” (avocado toast) with fresh avocado, raw pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and Himalayan sea salt on choice of bread, or the “Fresh Classic” breakfast sandwich with a cage-free egg and cheddar cheese on a toasted roll; chicken sausage, smoked ham or smokehouse bacon can be added.
Elevated Sandwiches—Guests can order items like the “Turnt Up Tuna” with line-caught albacore tuna, mayo, red onion, celery, capers, lettuce and tomato on multigrain or the “Spicy Tom” with roasted turkey breast, avocado, North Country Smokehouse bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and spicy chipotle aioli.
Protein Bowls—Options include the “Korean Kimchi” with brown rice, kimchi, green onion, red peppers, enoki mushrooms, celery and sesame garlic sauce; bulgogi-style beef can be added.
Fresh Salads—The “Killer Cobb” with finely chopped romaine, chicory, tomato, chicken, bacon, salami, radish, chickpeas, pepperoncini, cage-free eggs, cheddar, avocado, fine herbs and green goddess dressing, while the “Tuscan Sun” is a meatless option that is made with an herb-scented ciabatta, cherry tomato, pickled peppers, cucumber, red onion, fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic and fresh basil.
Blended Smoothies—Customers can opt for the “Green Glow” made with spinach, kale, pineapple, avocado, banana, apple, cucumber, lemon, mint and choice of milk.
The market also features self-serve, bean-to-cup coffee machines that press and brew locally roasted beans.
“We understand that our guests’ lives are busy and eating healthy while on the run can be difficult,” said Eric Slifka, CEO of Global Partners LP, which owns Alltown Fresh. “At Alltown Fresh, we have created a farm stand atmosphere with a focus on fresh food choices. Each item on the menu has been thoughtfully selected to be as healthy and clean as possible. We are focused on bringing in locally sourced items such as honey from Hilltop Apiaries based in Connecticut to ensure we offer guests vast organic choices. We’re very excited to open our second location in Connecticut and look forward to serving the people of Hamden.”
Alltown Fresh offers customers outdoor seating, groceries, WiFi, pet relief areas, traditional snack options and phone charging stations. The Hamden location will be open 24/7, with the kitchen operating daily 6 a.m.-8 p.m.
