Sickles Market Opens Kitchen and Entertaining Department

The market will transition their boutique gifts offerings to a kitchen and entertaining essentials department.

Sickles Market, established in 1908, on ancestral property that dates back to a King’s Land Grant in 1665, is a trusted source for the highest quality produce, baked goods, gourmet grocery items, meats, hand-cut-to-order artisanal cheeses, prepared foods, cut flowers, plants, kitchen and entertaining essentials. Located at One Harrison Avenue, Little Silver (732-741-9563), owner Bob Sickles has announced that the market will transition their boutique gifts offerings to a kitchen and entertaining essentials department. Customers can expect to find tableware, cookware, bakeware, serving accessories and various entertaining and cooking accouterments. The gradual changeover is expected to be complete by January 2016.

“We are very excited to make this change because it will create a more cohesive culture throughout our market,” said Bob Sickles, the third generation owner. “Through the years we’ve had to make changes from our initial business model, which was a simple, seasonal farm stand, to meet the growing needs of our community and our business,” explained Sickles. “The new department will better reflect our continuous pursuit to procure the best products found in food and gardening from our travels around the world and to deliver our goods with excellent customer service.”

The market is open daily from 9 AM to 6 PM daily.
