Copps Hill Uncommon
Gourmet food abounds at the Marketplace at Copps Hill
Ridgefield rocks in the specialty-food department, much like the Chelsea Market or Ferry Building, but on a scale that matches our own culinary needs. The Marketplace at Copps Hill has a host of boutique stores with high-quality specialty foods.
No. 109 Cheese and Wine A purveyor of wine, cheese, charcuterie, and specialty prepared appetizers from Bernard’s. A one-stop-shop for a cocktail party, romantic night for two, or prepared picnic basket.
Swoon From the owners of the Cake Box this bakery is dedicated to gluten-free and nut-free baked goods.
Ridgefield Organics & Specialty Market stocks fresh organic produce and local organic dairy, eggs, cheeses, breads, cereals, and more. Fresh pasture-raised chickens and eggs and chicken pot pies, as well as beef, turkey, and pork from Apple Ridge Farm.
Ridgefield Prime This old-fashioned butcher shop will cut to order USDA prime beef and fresh wild-caught seafood. The only thing missing is sawdust on the floor.
Ross’ Bread Everything is baked with organic flour and local and organic ingredients are used as often as possible at this European-style bakery. Scratch made soups, artisanal breads, cakes and even dog biscuits.
And, don’t forget that this food haven has restaurants too: Bartolo, Southwest Café, The Bayou, Thai Pearl, and Cutting Board.
