Elm City Market is New Haven’s best source for people choosing the keto diet and other low carbohydrate approaches to weight loss. Our community market offers healthy, sustainably-sourced meats and fish, a vast selection of cheese and full-fat dairy, plus fresh and organic low-carb vegetables.
A keto or ketogenic diet is based on the principle that eating a diet extremely low in carbs, high in fats and moderate in protein forces your metabolism into a state of ketosis, where the body burns fat for energy. Though it shares some similarities with the paleo diet, the keto diet is more about balancing the macronutrients of carbs, fat, and protein.
Aside from offering efficient weight-loss, a keto diet can help reduce blood sugar and insulin levels.
Everywhere! Our meat department is chock-full of keto-friendly choices, such Niman Ranch’s humanely raised rib-eye, ground beef, and bacon. So it goes for our seafood counter, where you’ll find fatty fish like wild-caught salmon, tuna and trout.
Keto is the cheese-lover’s diet and Elm City Market is the cheese-lover’s store with more than 100 choices of cow-, goat- and sheep’s-milk cheese from all over the world. Plus, for a grab-and-go snack, pick up our house-baked parmesan crisps, crunchy chips made from nothing but grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. And our dairy department includes a rich array of full-fat Greek and Australian-style yogurts and extra-rich French-style butter.
Our produce department is a keto haven, with loads of leafy green vegetables, tons of tomatoes, and avocados.
