Chappaqua Village Market to Extend Hours, Open on Sundays

Interest from customers in staying open later in the wake of D'Agostino closing was cited as a factor.

Folks looking for grab fresh meat or produce will have more time to do so, as will have extended hours beginning next week.

The new hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday through Friday, one hour longer than the previous closing time of 6 p.m. Saturday hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The market, located at 12 King St., will now be open on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., previously its only day off.

The decision to expand the market's hours according to Vinny Milazzo, a member of the owning family, is because customers have been requesting it.

"There's always people looking for longer hours," he said.

Milazzo confirmed that some of the customer demand for longer hours is related to the closure of D'Agostino, which has left people in Chappaqua without fresh food options during later evenings and Sundays.The village market, a smaller food store that has been in Chappaqua since 1975, is the now the only store to carry fresh meats and produce in the hamlet.

The village market is also planning to update its online questionnaire, which is posted at chappaquavillagemarket.com.

D'Agostino, which to Walgreens, has been closed since Tropical Storm Irene caused damage to the space, although plans were already under way for its departure before then. It is unclear if the supermarket will reopen or if it's closed for good. Other options for Chappaqua residents to do grocery shopping include A&P locations in Mount Kisco and Millwood, and a Key Food in Pleasantville.

Thank you Vinny and all the great folks at Chappaqua Village Market. Even though you've been a landmark here for over 30 years, we have enjoyed 16 years of Thanksgiving turkeys and excellent dinners in our home. Gratefully, Rich, Laura and Michael Diefenbach
