Palmer's Direct to You Market is a very popular specialty grocer that has been in business in Rochester since 1850. This retail operation is a spin-off from their larger restaurant supply business. Because of that you can get either individual portions of meat and fish, or large quantities. The quality is generally quite good as it is the same food supplied to fine-dining restaurants.
They also sell a variety of prepared items as take-out food, and operate an on-site cafe.

I had the Ahi salad, and enjoyed it quite a bit. Plus the no-tipping setup lessens the overall lunch bill. The first time through the food line can be a bit awkward, due to the multiple registers and all the foods displayed past the point of ordering. It is worth the confusion though. —TimCrandall

2010-09-03 09:59:41   Palmers used to have much lower prices on meats and seafood than Wegmans. While they are still slightly lower, the selection is better and the quality is more consistent. For example, you can usually get Nieman Ranch steaks, and most times they have at least two or three cuts of dry aged beef. Also, they have great specialty foods like Dave's Locker clams casino (most restaurants serve this brand) My favorite is that they have angus brisket for 2.50 a pound on sale. Hard to find anywhere else for the price. —ScottLaRock

Everything is always fresh, delicious and cooks amazingly well whenever I buy anything from them - fish, meat, chicken, everything! Not only that, the food they serve on the other side of the store that's cooked fresh is always top notch quality. I've had better cooked food at Palmer's than I have at some 4 star restaurants. It's been so good I've even brought clients and family here and everyone's always been impressed and loved it. Always happy to go, always will go for as long as it's around. —AGoldman

However, the tarter sauce was extremely bland as was the coleslaw. Next time I will get cocktail sauce for the fish and chowder instead of the slaw.
