Our Vendors

We strive to support small-scale, hand-crafted food artisans whenever possible. Their products reflect a commitment to using the finest ingredients and time-honored methods to make their goods. Many of our vendors are actively involved in sustainable farming and in bettering their communities - real examples of acting locally and thinking globally. We are thrilled to support vendors making a difference in our future.

As for our fruit, we are pleased to feature local produce from Red Jacket Orchards and local farm stands at Green Market in Union Square. There's nothing better than fruit from upstate New York and New Jersey. Peaches, plums, nectarines, white cherries and donut peaches that come into their splendor in the summer months. In the fall, we cherish the heirloom apples and pears. And we take care to ensure that any fruit that does not meet our high standards because of blemishes or bruising is daily donated to City Harvest, a food rescue organization feeding NYC's hungry and homeless.

Burdick L.A. Burdick Chocolate (chocolates bonbons, bars and chocolate dipped fruits)

We have been buying chocolates from L.A. Burdick Chocolate for as long as either of our companies has been in business. The founder of Burdick Chocolate, Larry Burdick, walked into our first store on East 6th Street in 1987. He rustled through his leather satchel and pulled out a small wooden box closed with a ribbon and wax seal. The chocolates were petit, delicate, cut by hand, subtle and altogether ethereal. Larry's philosophy from the start was to combine French gastronomic sensibility with Swiss know-how, and American imagination. Since our first momentous year, Manhattan Fruitier has been graced by this chocolate-driven relationship. Larry is currently pursuing a long term project to build a chocolate processing facility on the island of Grenada, the home to some of the world's best cocoa beans.
