Home delivery food services have become indispensable to many residents, especially those at higher risk for COVID-19 and those seeking out convenience over in-person shopping. These new services are also bringing some high quality, even hard to find ingredients right to your doorstep.

One of the latest home delivery food service operations, Solex Catsmo Home, offers meat, fish, produce, dairy (milk, eggs), bread, pasta, truffles (yes, truffles!) delivers direct to homes in Essex as well as Bergen and Hudson counties.

Solex Catsmo Home was created by Solex Fine Foods and sister company, Catsmo Artisan Smokehouse. Solex Fine Foods was founded by Markus Draxler in 2011; Draxler and his family are longtime Montclair residents.

The Ultimate Weekend Bagel Brunch features Black Seeds Bagels, perfectly ripe avocados, cream cheese and Catsmo Gold Label Salmon.

Until recently, Draxler’s epicurean offerings were favorites of top NYC restaurants like Daniel, Eleven Madison Park and Le Bernadin. When many top restaurants had to close in March 2020, Draxler and his team pivoted to provide the same exceptional and high-quality products to a new customer – the home cook!

Order smoked salmon, seafood, caviar, wild game, meats for grilling, charcuterie, cheese as well as oils, vinegars and other gourmet provisions and pantry staples.

Solex Catsmo Home delivers orders Wednesday and Saturday. Delivery time is flexible – delivering throughout the day. The order cut off is Tuesday and Friday at 8pm.
