Ski’s Downtown Oshkosh
Newcomers to Oshkosh and the born & bred crew alike can all agree on one thing this fall: Ski’s Oshkosh is finally open, and we are all better for it. Especially for those of us living and working downtown, the necessity of driving to one of the big box grocery stores on a given weeknight for staples like bread, meat, coffee, and vegetables — a drag on our culinary inspiration if every there was one — has finally ended. Ski’s is the answer to “What can we get that’s close?” that doesn’t mean a sack of hot food plopped onto the table and our nice knife set in the kitchen — glistening, sharp, but horribly bored, unused. A walk through Ski’s Meat Market and Grocery right here in downtown Oshkosh (502 North Main Street, to be exact) and you’ll still be saddled with the question of what to have for dinner, but in the best possible way. Here’s a quick, though by no means comprehensive, virtual tour of the place to give you an idea of what we mean.
From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Boar’s Head deli meats that just beg to be made into big heaping sandwiches with the Manderfield’s bread and seemingly endless cheese choices, the array of ingredients at Ski’s calls out to be examined, re-imagined, and put together in your home kitchen.
Specialty salads are available for when you don’t want to worry about sides, but there are plenty of options for when you do: fresh veggies, rice and pasta, quality oils, pasta sauces, and so much more are all on hand. As for proteins, the choices for fresh fish, meat, chicken, and sausages stretch on as far as the eye can see. Browse through the photos to get an idea of what’s available now at Ski’s — We think you’ll agree downtown Oshkosh is looking better all the time.
