SNEAK PEEK: McCaffrey’s Food Market in New Hope set to open Thursday

The folks from McCaffrey’s Food Markets held a preview bash Wednesday evening to commemorate the opening of their New Hope store on Thursday.

We decided to bring our camera and appetite, and the food on hand didn’t disappoint.

We even got to meet Jim McCaffrey, President of McCaffrey Food Markets, who was understandably delighted and proud to finally be opening the doors to the much-anticipated new location.

“We’re just thrilled to be here in New Hope,” he said. “It’s a great community.”

Located at 300 W. Bridge St. in the former Staples location, the new market has been eagerly awaited by local residents. 

The store features a gourmet sandwich station, a broad selection of cheeses, an extensive grocery offering, a Java Jim’s coffee bar, some great-looking produce, a primo array of meat, and a top-notch bakery.

The store has an open, airy, almost barn-like feel, with more natural lighting that’s friendlier to the eyes than the usual fluorescent supermarket glare. Shoppers can use eco-friendly reusable bags — single-use plastic bags and straws will not be available at the store.

Opening day will start with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by special sales and tastings throughout the store.

Grand opening hours on Thursday are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and regular business hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.

The first McCaffrey’s Food Market opened in Yardley in 1986, and the company also serves customers in Newtown, Blue Bell, Doylestown, Princeton, N.J., and West Windsor, N.J.

  • A wonderful first class grocery store. all products are merchandised perfectly and easy to find. Excellent produce, fish, meat, cheeses and deli, with a special coffee bar treat. Hats off to the McCaffrey family for bringing us a great grocery shopping experience!

  • McCaffreys is the store that New Hope has been long awaiting. The selection and quality is outstanding! Prepared foods are another story, and by that I mean selection and taste. All wonderful and ready to eat or reheat and serve. Thanks Jim and Jim McCaffrey
