Under Alan’s expert supervision, the KMP has been able to make numerous agreements with small family farms which espouse a philosophy equal to ours and have unrivaled products. This philosophy includes the following bedrock principles:

All animals must be treated humanely, from birth through the shechita process.

All farms must be regularly inspected to ensure that they are in compliance with all criteria listed here.

All farms must have a strong ethos of sustainability, as well as demonstrated practices in support of such convictions.

A detailed land management plan must be in place.

All farms must be family-run and, wherever possible, local.

All feed must be free of animal byproducts.

All of our humanely-raised specialty meats and poultry must me of exceptional quality & possess the highest caliber nutritional content, appearance, marbling, tenderness & taste.

An Exclusive Emphasis on LOCALLY-SOURCED, TOP-QUALITY
Poultry from Small, Family-Owned & Operated Farms

Family farmers care about the health and well-being of their animals and, as a result, foster conditions which are low stress, humane and allow for the healthful upbringing of these animals. Family farmers further take great care of their land, ensuring that it will remain healthful and viable for future generations.

We carry a tremendous selection of Fresh Poultry and all items are labeled with our custom attribute designations as you see below. These labels detail where each animal was born, the environment in which it was raised & the specific characteristics of the final product.

AN EXCLUSIVE EMPHASIS ON THE HIGHEST-QUALITY BEEF & SPECIALTY
MEATS FROM SMALL, FAMILY-OWNED & OPERATED FARMS

As with the above-referenced poultry, we carry a tremendous selection of Fresh Beef and all items are labeled with our custom attribute designations as you see below.

These labels detail where each animal was born, the environment in which it was raised & the specific characteristics of the final product.

Sustainably-Sourced Fresh Fish Brought in Daily

At The Kosher Marketplace, we have recognized a major need for fundamentally altering the way that our oceans are interacted with by people. As important to nutrition as fish can be (nearly 3 billion people rely on fish as a major source of protein), we believe that sustainable fishing is absolutely critical to the success of our planet. Human activities, led by overfishing, have seen the populations of fish species utilized by humans fall by half or so in the last forty years. When fish are taken from unhealthy schools, harvested by indecent methods or caught in quantities beyond a reasonable replacement rate, we threaten the future viability of our oceans for all of us. Ironically, although in need of far greater protections, it is estimated that only 3.4 percent of the oceans are protected and, of this minuscule amount, only part of that is effectively managed. It is imperative that we all do our part to preserve the beauty, harmony and wondrous gifts of the Earth’s oceans.

Local, Farm Fresh Produce

Our produce arrives daily from small, usually local, family farms. It is our strong feeling that when you buy locally grown produce from family farms, you are getting the produce in its peak state of flavor, health & freshness. Standard produce is often picked before it’s ready, something that can greatly affect taste, as well as nutrition. That’s because food starts to change as soon as it’s plucked from the earth and tender vitamins such as C, E, A and thiamine begin to deteriorate. Temperature changes, as well as exposure to air and artificial light, can also rob fruits & vegetables of nutrients.

Prepared Foods

Under Chef Ken’s expert supervision, our entire team endeavors each and every day to produce specialty fare, made on premises, which reflects our global experience, training and dedication to the craft of cooking. We rely on seasonal flavors, locally foraged produce and fresh ingredients to create cosmopolitan dishes as diverse as Miso-Crusted “Drunken” Chilean Sea Bass & as classic as Chopped Liver & Kasha Varnishkes. Irrespective of the complexity of the dish, we always strive to create the highest quality products for YOU, our wonderful customers.

Our specialty foods have been globally-influenced through our own experiences, as well as those of others who have assisted us. We are always traveling the world in order to seek out new sustainably-sourced ingredients, cooking methods and final preparations. Chef Ken recently completed a trip to Italy, where he saw firsthand several new pasta techniques. We make fresh pasta several times weekly, on an imported machine from Puglia, Italy. Mixing, cutting and drying is all done in-house and we are anxious to incorporate some of the new techniques from Chef Ken’s trip into our fresh pasta preparations.

Chef Ken has also trained with renowned Indian Chef Julie Sahni, who has provided guidance on several of our Indian preparations. These roots have led to our interpretations of Chana Masala (made with specially-sourced Organic Chickpeas), as well as numerous traditional dishes such as Boneless Chicken Breast Saagwala, Boneless Chicken Breast Tikka Masala and Boneless Chicken Thighs Tikka.

And then...there is love and attention to detail. Once all the necessary components of a dish have been properly sourced, there still remains the ultimate challenge: preparing the food in the most delicious, presentable & exquisite manner. It is this step which probably requires the most care and diligence; and it is at this point that our entire team spares no effort to ensure that the final product is beautiful, healthful & ultimately palate-pleasing.

Specialty Products

We strongly believe in providing the highest-quality, healthiest & most sustainable specialty food products to our customers each day. We scour the globe in this effort and have made hundreds of connections with equally like-minded people & organizations across the world who also believe everyone deserves access to healthy, sustainable & high-quality gourmet foods. It is our goal to provide these specialty products to you daily.

Rabbinical Supervision

We commit to always maintaining the highest levels of Kashruth in accordance with the supervision of Rabbi Avrohom Marmorstein and our Mashgiach Tamidi, Rabbi Yakov Greenwald. This is the most basic tenet of The Kosher Marketplace. All our fresh meats & poultry are glatt kosher from reliable shoctim. All baked products are pas yisroel, cooked foods are bishul yisroel and an entire team of Rabbis, led by Rabbi Greenwald, checks, cleans and washes (where necessary) all required fruits & vegetables on a daily basis.
