Welcome to the Spice Islands Marketplace at Greystone!

With almost 3,000 square feet of retail space, the Spice Islands Marketplace at the CIA at Greystone showcases cookware, bakeware, and a treasure trove of culinary tools. The store also features an extensive selection of professional cutlery as well as specialty food products from around the world.

The marketplace carries The Culinary Institute of America's renowned textbooks, CIA books geared for the home food enthusiast, and more than 1,500 cookbook titles. Books about wine making, tasting, and pairing have become a prominent part of the selection. In addition, we are proud to feature a "locals" table filled with the works of area chefs. Many of the books have been signed by the author.

Rounding out our selection are Tabletop, Linens and Crystal Stemware, chef wear, and a variety of items sporting the CIA at Greystone logo.
