HIDDEN GEMS: Host Like A Pro

Yes, finally, it’s time to step outside, catch the rays and have fun with your loved ones. If a summertime party is what you have in mind, we’ve got you covered. Big Y has a bounty of ways to bring the party to life and make your job as host easier.


From deli meat and cheese platters and homestyle salads to veggie and fruit platters and sandwich platters, there is always something tasty for every palate and party.




The French call them charcuterie. We call them delicious. And there are plenty of options to choose from! Did you know that our certified Cheese Merchants can build you a custom cheese platter and charcuterie board for your event? Let’s all be cheesy!




If you’re looking for high-quality seafood, look no more. North Coast Seafoods brings some of the world’s best seafood at your fingertips. Now, if you’re looking for a refreshing shrimp cocktail or scampi, look no further. Big Y Naked Shrimp is certified sustainable and naturally delicious, with no antibiotics, phosphates or preservatives. Try it today!




This is where family favorites live. Lasagna, stuffed shells and meatballs in sauce are just some of the dishes you can take with you, heat and serve.




Pizza? We got it. Fresh, made-to-order subs? Yeah. Chicken wings and boneless tenders? Of course. We have them all comin’ in hot.




Looking for that just-right finishing touch, whether it’s an elegant centerpiece, a casual bouquet or a fun bunch of balloons? Come and talk to our floral experts. With prom right around the corner, our skilled florists can custom-make corsages and boutonnieres that will complement every style and fashion. Need balloons for a special grad? We can custom-print high school or college logos for that personalized touch.




Our superior meats are the perfect centerpiece for special occasions. Rib Roasts, sirloin spoon roasts, fresh or frozen turkeys and spiral or boneless hams are just some of our favorites. Did you know we have Meat Culinarians on site? They are the meat team and are ready to help you guide your purchase for delicious meat recipes. Check them out next time you visit your local Big Y.




Nothing says celebration more than a gourmet brownie platter or one of our sweet tooth platters. Any of our treats will make your party...a P-A-R-T-Y! If you’re looking for more personalization, we can customize the bakery cakes and cupcakes with your high school colors! How cool is that?




We take bread seriously. All of our artisan breads and snowflake rolls are made using quality ingredients and baked in small batches, making them crave-worthy.
