Who We Are

For over 30 years Colonial Market has been a great hometown grocery store, proudly serving the Valley Shore, and surrounding communities on the Central Connecticut shoreline.

The secret to that three decade success: a commitment to exceptional customer service and quality and freshness equal to none.

Today we have a new name – Colonial Fresh Market – and we are under new ownership! Come in and see the changes happening here. We are making Colonial Fresh Market a better shopping experience for you – yet committed to retain the formula for success that made us what we are today.

Since the doors first opened at Colonial Market in Essex on November 3rd, 1985, we’ve served our customers and community with the very best in groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, deli and hot foods second to none and a staff that’s always willing to go the extra mile.

Our commitment to the health of our community and its continued growth is unsurpassed. Our customer service far exceeds anything you’ll find at our “big box”or any other local competition. We promise to continue that long-standing tradition here at Colonial Fresh Market.

Come in – Come home – Come Back Again and Again and Again.
