SARATOGA SPRINGS — 55 Railroad Place is getting a makeover – a big one. The former downtown Price Chopper Limited is being transformed into a European-style gourmet marketplace, known as PDT Market. The 19,000 square foot facility will feature a gourmet grocery section, full-service bar, café, floral and home goods sections and will have rooms for private events and cooking classes. Construction of the new facility is set to begin in the coming weeks and the PDT team is expecting the operation to be up-and-running this fall with an official grand opening date to be announced later this year in September. Architectural and design partners on the project include ABN Design, Paone Architecture and Bonacio Construction. 

PDT Market is the lifework of Chef Adam Foti. PDT Market, short for “pomme de terre,” which translates from Old French to “apple from the earth,” is influenced by Foti’s French and Italian heritage. Chef Adam has served the Saratoga community and beyond for over ten years with his catering brand - PDT Catering. The new location, however, will be a place to “eat, shop and learn” as guests can look forward to holiday events, weekend brunch, special pop-ups, classes with Adam and other unique events. 

In 2018, PDT created a quaint outdoor, European-style space at their location in Ballston Lake, which doubles as an event space and carries an expansive home and lifestyle product line. Now, the PDT team has their eyes set on Saratoga, “we’re so excited to expand our brand with this new venture and bring our passion for food directly to downtown Saratoga. Our vision for PDT market is to create a distinctive experience that transports people to another place and in the process transforms our community. We want to be Saratoga’s favorite place to eat, shop and learn – a familiar place that comforts all both inside and out,” said founder and owner of PDT, Chef Adam Foti in a statement.
