CROSS RIVER, N.Y. – A new grocery store is set to open in the Orchard Square Shopping Center around Memorial Day, a representative of the shopping center confirmed to The Katonah-Lewisboro Times.

Green Way Markets will sell organic and prepared food items, said Adam Brodsky, director of commercial properties for EK Cross River, which owns the shopping center on North Salem Road.

Brodsky said his company had “a lot of different options beyond supermarkets,” but felt it was important to keep one in the shopping center. He said the Green Way Markets signed a “very, very long-term lease,” which began on Jan. 1.

The goal is to have the store open by around the end of May, Brodsky said.

“They’re doing a lot of construction over there, so that’s the plan,” he said.

On Facebook, Lewisboro Supervisor Peter Parsons said he met with the owner, John Esteves.

“I have met John and am convinced that he will provide us with the quality store that Cross River needs and that will benefit every other store in the area by acting as a magnet for shoppers,” Parsons wrote.

Green Way Markets will replace DeCicco Family Markets, which closed on Sept. 1. Its lease was set to expire at the end of December.
