All healthcare professionals will receive a free cookie with any purchase on May 6 as a thank you for their service to the community

ALBANY, N.Y. – Cardona’s Market, a three-generation Italian specialty market and caterer for more than 75 years, is inviting healthcare workers across the Capital Region to enjoy a jumbo gourmet cookie as a way to honor them on National Nurses Day.

On Friday, May 6, Cardona’s Market is showing its appreciation and support for these selfless heroes, whose tireless work keeps the community healthy and safe, by offering them a free, house-made cookie with any purchase when they visit Cardona’s Market locations in Albany, Latham and Saratoga Springs, while supplies last.

“Cardona’s Market is proud to celebrate National Nurses Day by offering our signature cookies to those who serve and care for our communities,” said Cardona’s Market Owner August Cardona. “It’s important to recognize the heroic work and unwavering commitment nurses and healthcare professionals show every day. Their selfless sacrifices inspire all of us to come together to do everything we can to support one another.”The initiative demonstrates Cardona’s longstanding history of serving the Capital Region community, which dates back to the market’s founding in 1945. The family market has repeatedly stepped up during the challenges of the past two years to support numerous healthcare organizations as well as those working at vaccination sites.

For more than 75 years, Cardona’s Market has provided Capital Region residents top-quality Italian products, including meats, cheeses, olives, olive oils, vinegars, pastas and pantry staples. The market features a full selection of fresh-from-the-kitchen dishes, including restaurant-quality grab-and-go meals such as homemade lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, sauces and meatballs. Cardona’s also offers a complete menu of hand-crafted sandwiches, artisan salads, aromatic soups and fresh-baked bread.

The Latham market, located at 9 Cobbee Road, and Saratoga Springs market, located at 222 Washington Street, were previously acquired from Roma Foods Importing Company. The two new locations complement Cardona’s original flagship storefront at 340 Delaware Avenue in Albany.

The Albany location is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is closed on Sundays. The Latham market is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The store in Saratoga Springs is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is closed on Sundays.
