LaSalle Market and Deli is the culmination of all the things that make Collinsville tick: great food, rich history and a quirky atmosphere. LaSalle has been a staple in the Collinsville & Canton community for decades. The building itself, a bright sage-green adorned with maroon shutters and awnings is an iconic sight in the downtown area. Over the years, it has continued to be a destination for Canton and Collinsville residents along with out-of-town visitors alike. Many flock to the area on weekends to browse local shops, explore the historic Main Street and head over to LaSalle for an afternoon lunch.
Back in its early days, LaSalle was first known as Keney Market, a traditional small grocery store that served breakfast, deli sandwiches, donuts and candy which you could purchase along with a local newspaper of your choice. Later on, its name changed to LaSalle after a family member from LaSalle Market of West Hartford purchased the business. Over the years, the market changed hands a couple more times as it transformed from a grocery store into more of a full-service restaurant, expanding its menu and eventually offering a full-fledged catering service as well.
Today, you’ll find that LaSalle Market is almost constantly abuzz every day it is open — especially on weekend afternoons during the spring, summer and fall as the Farmington River Trail runs right through the town of Collinsville. Many will hop off their bikes and stop by LaSalle for a quick bite before continuing on their journey. LaSalle’s atmosphere is welcoming and eclectic and its decor makes use of its rustic and historic roots, giving it a cozy ambiance that feels like home.
