    LIBN: Wild Fork opening its first Long Island market

David Winzelberg 

Wild Fork Foods, a national meat and seafood market chain, will open its first Long Island location in West Hempstead.

The new 3,000-square-foot food market opens Tuesday, April 9 in the Nassau Plaza shopping center at 603 Hempstead Turnpike in West Hempstead. The pad site building was formerly occupied by Boston Market.

The new West Hempstead store is one of three that Wild Fork will be opening on Long Island this year. The company will be opening a 4,500-square-foot market in Smith Haven Plaza at 2075 Moriches Road in Lake Grove and a 4,700-square-foot market in Woodbury Plaza at 409 South Oyster Bay Road in Plainview. Both of those are expected to open this summer.

“We’re extremely excited to be opening up on Long Island, focusing on nourishing better lives and changing the way people consume, shop and purchase their proteins,” said Jonathan Taylor, head of Wild Fork Foods for the Northeast region. “After West Hempstead we have two more this year on the Island and we’re extremely happy.” 

Headquartered in Doral, Fla., Wild Fork specializes in frozen meat and seafood staples, as well as exotic meats, fruits, vegetables and prepared foods. With over 700 cuts, Wild Fork offers everyday grocery staples like chicken and fish to premium Wagyu and exotic meats like alligator, elk and ostrich. 

A subsidiary of food processing giant JBS USA, Wild Fork opened its first stores in 2018 and now has more than 40 stores in Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and California. The company will also deliver everywhere in the U.S. except for Alaska and Hawaii. 

Wild Fork is planning to hold a grand opening celebration at the West Hempstead market on Saturday, April 27. 

Adam Bass and Eric Gillman of CBRE represented Wild Fork, while Robert Delavale served as in-house representative for the Breslin Organization in all three of the Long Island lease transactions.
