Limon Fine Food Celebrates First Anniversary in Hamden with a Special 3-Day Thank You to the Community: Low Prices, Food Tastings, Gifts and Vendor Demos


Hamden, CT, January 19, 2008—To those who have spent the last year working to provide Hamden and the Greater New Haven Area with the freshest foods, quality catering and a convenient place to pick up a good dinner (last minute), it’s hard to believe a whole year has passed. But it was January 31st, 2007, when Limon Fine Food first opened for business on 1926 State Street a the corner of Ridge Road.

And if you are one of the few people not yet to discover this emporium of fine foods, your incentive for dropping by just grew because February 1st, 2nd and 3rd (that’s a Friday, Saturday and Sunday) Limon will be celebrating its first anniversary. And they want the community to get all the gifts. “It’s only natural,” says Limon partner Peter Terralavoro, “that we’d want to thank everyone who has shopped with us this past year. That’s why we’re going to do some crazy low pricing, bring in several of our vendors to offer demos and food tastings, give away recipes and raffle off gift baskets.”

Local Support and Good Wishes

According to town leaders, the State Street neighborhood has been waiting eight years for a grocery store to take hold in this part of town. Now with Limon preparing to enter year two, the market is enjoying good support in the community for its convenience and good prices as well as with shoppers from surrounding areas that appreciate the many imported and gourmet products, the quality prepared foods and the excellent value. “Limon is a great neighborhood market,” says Hamden Mayor Craig Henrici, “and a perfect alternative to the mega supermarket. It offers shoppers friendly service and good food. The town extends its congratulations on this, their first anniversary in Hamden.”

“We’re lucky to have Limon in town, says Nancy Dudchik, president, Hamden Chamber of Commerce. “They’ve stepped up to the plate and are having a major impact on our area. Their support for Hamden earns our reciprocal gratitude.”

Dale Kroop, Director of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Town of Hamden, knows Limon partners Peter Terralavoro and Zeynel Ucak and respects their business acumen. “I like what they’re doing,” he says. “They’ve been smart about the business and what it takes to succeed, namely serving the neighborhood well while appealing to a wider circle of shoppers in the Greater New Haven Area. Limon is a good-looking neighborhood market with great food. I commend them and wish them continued success.”

Saturday Activities Suitable for Food Grazing!

While special pricing and recipes will be available for all three days, Saturday is the day with the greatest activity. Starting around noon, February 2nd, selected vendors will be on site for food samplings and demonstrations. Local dignitaries have also been invited to join in the storewide celebration. Limon’s own staff will also be helping to serve up tasty treats. “Whether you’re a regular shopper or a first-time visitor,” says Limon partner Zeynel Ucak, “we’ve got something special to offer. Come try something new, pick up a few cooking ideas, and be sure to register for the free gift baskets.” Among the vendors that will be on site:

  • Boar’s Head Provisions—producers and distributors of fine delicatessen meats and cheeses since 1905.
  • The Cheese Works—importers and distributors of specialty foods to gourmet stores.
  • Vincent Kay—well-known New Haven beekeeper and producer of fine local honey.

Of course, you can still come in and shop, taking advantage of special pricing throughout the store. The deli counter, bakery shop and salad bar will be open for business as usual…only a little more festive.

Limon Fine Food is the neighborhood market that serves up convenience, everyday favorites, healthy alternatives and popular imported treats. Limon stands for fresh produce, meats and seafood and good value in every department. Whether you’re shopping for the family, planning a catered event, searching out a healthy snack or lunch, or picking up a quick dinner entrée, Limon has what you need and what you want. We’re more than a grocery store.
