McCaffrey’s, established in 1986 in Yardley, Pennsylvania, by James J. McCaffrey (Jim), was followed by a Market in Princeton in 1992, and a few years later, West Windsor in 1996. Now, with more than 1,100 employees and six locations, the store continues to provide unparalleled customer service, the highest quality fresh food and an unsurpassable commitment to the communities in which it does business.
What sets McCaffrey’s apart from other markets? To name a few: six-day-a-week fresh seafood and produce deliveries, including local, exotic, and organic varieties; bakery items baked fresh daily; unique, chef-inspired prepared foods made in their own commissary in nearby Langhorne, Pennsylvania; and catering to meet all your entertaining needs.
McCaffrey’s stands behind its claim to bring you the highest-standard, quality ingredients — no matter the label. Organic is a big industry buzzword and a label that gets our attention around the perimeter and down practically every aisle of grocery stores nationwide.
Keeping with this food trend, McCaffrey’s is happy to offer you thousands of organic options. They have excellent relationships with their shippers and growers/farmers who share their vision and have great integrity of product. McCaffrey’s knows their Garden State customers are educated consumers who share their vision too. Please visit Meet our Local Farmers on their Produce and Meat Department Pages at mccaffreys.com for some examples of their relationships.
If you usually only order seafood at restaurants, McCaffrey’s challenges you to try sauteing, pan frying, baking, or grilling some of their fresh catches at home — halibut, swordfish, salmon, and flounder.
If you prefer meat, their experts in that department will help you decide between some of their specialties — rib roast, filet mignon, chicken breasts, or thighs or pork loin. They’ll help you with everything from selection and preparation to cooking and storing ideas. Add to your plate some fruits and vegetables they stock from their neighborhood farmers and you’ve answered the question, What’s for Dinner?
Don’t forget a little room for dessert. McCaffrey’s Bakery Department boasts a complete line of freshly baked products — from artisan breads and rolls to muffins, fruit tarts, and cupcakes. And they specialize in all-occasion, custom-decorated, and specialty cakes. They are always including new bakery recipes at www.mccaffreys.com if you decide to make your own. Remember: every great gathering ends with something sweet!
Besides their circular, in-store signage, and talking to our associates, the best way to learn about everything food- and drink-related at McCaffrey’s is on their website and via Facebook. If you’re looking for an event — like their free, monthly nutrition events with their own Registered Dietitian — visit mccaffreys.com/events. Or like them on Facebook for important announcements — like their addition of beer, wine, and spirits in the Princeton Market! Each department changes their Fresh Picks page monthly for What’s in Season — from apples and pears to their store-made, Muffin of the Month!
If you have a department-related question, like — How do I put together a fantastic cheese plate? — each department has an Ask the Expert page. Their department directors read and respond to customer questions daily and post one question/answer for all customers to benefit from monthly!
The Department 101 pages delve more into food- and drink-topics, if you’re interested in learning more. They continuously upload recipes for you online, as well — highlighting McCaffrey’s Own, Gluten-Free, Heart-Healthy, and Diabetic appetizers, entrees, desserts, and more.
Each year Princeton customers help McCaffrey’s raise funds for the American Cancer Society during its Grocer Fights Cancer Day; five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to this worthy organization.
The Grocer Fights Cancer Day has been held annually since 1992 when Jim began the event after his sister was diagnosed with cancer. Since its inception, it has raised more than $550,000 to fight cancer at its six markets collectively (four markets in PA — Blue Bell, Doylestown, Newtown, and Yardley, and two in New Jersey — Princeton and West Windsor).
Have a special event coming up — a graduation, family reunion, the big birthday? McCaffrey’s is your best choice for in-home dining and entertaining. Their catering planners have years of experience helping hosts/hostesses plan small, intimate gatherings and large, elegant events. We are full service — theme and menu planning; bartenders and servers; equipment rental and linens; floral arrangements, and of course, the food!
Their chefs can create a menu to your specifications, using only the highest quality, freshest ingredients. And, they specialize in all occasion, custom-decorated and specialty cakes. To discuss your catering needs, please call their Catering Department at 1-800-717-7174.
