West Side Market is a small chain of grocery markets originally located along the west side but now throughout Manhattan.  With stores as far south as East 12th Street and as far north as West 110th, West Side Market is a family owned and operated business that opened its first store in 1965 and today has five, with two more about to open.  Several of them are open 24/7; check their website for hours.

What to know

The stores have a full grocery selection, a large produce department with both conventional and organic fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, and meats and poultry including Murray's and Bell & Evans chickens and sausages from Esposito's (which in my opinion makes the best Italian sausages in the city).  There's always a large dairy department, cheese and charcuterie, and fresh bakery items, both breads and sweets.  Prices are generally above those at Fairway but for some things, they're higher than at Whole Foods so keep track of what they charge.  They also routinely put things on sale.

What's great: 

In addition to its grocery products, the stores have excellent prepared foods and sandwiches made to order, plus sushi chefs making fresh sushi all day.  They also have a big selection of snacks and hors d'oeuvres that can be reheated for easy entertaining.

The family matriarch, Maria Zoitas, is in charge of the kitchens, including all the prepared foods.  She shares some of her recipes at the store's website.
