DeCicco Family Markets is a local family-run grocery chain offering fresh produce, restaurant quality meats, and breads and confections baked daily from scratch. Also available are gluten free, salt free, and sugar free items; foods low in fat and carbohydrates; and organic and natural produce, meats, and dairy products. DeCicco’s also offers catering services with a wide variety of platters.
It was big news in Manhattan when markets like Whole Foods Market and Eataly installed beer taps; it meant that craft brew drinkers could fill their “growlers” at super-select grocery stores. Growlers (in case you’re not part of the craft beer cult) are half-gallon jugs that can be filled at the brewery or select stores. Their benefit is that the beer is cheaper by volume than from a six-pack (plus, by filling it yourself, it cuts all the big carbon-footprint middlemen in bottling, shipping, etc). The great news for Westchester is that we don’t have to schlepp into Manhattan to fill our jugs. DeCicco’s in Ardsley has 12 live taps devoted to cult brews.

Oh, we love those DeCicco boys for turning their personal obsession into an honest-to-goodness county amenity. Their 12-keg system in Ardsley outdoes even the new Yonkers Whole Foods Market to offer just-tapped freshness and excellent, world-spanning variety. The next time that you pick up your groceries and an overpriced six-pack, smack your head and think, “I coulda got a growler.”
