Lambert's Rainbow Fruit in Westwood, Mass.,
could very well have the biggest salad bar in all of Massachusetts.
This double-sided structure is about 15 ft . long and contains about
300 items (including salad dressings)!
The salad bar staff arrives daily at 5 a.m. to prepare the fruits,
veggies and other items, and by the day’s end about 1,000 lbs. of food
have been sold, according to Lambert's co-owner Nino Lambert.
Because Lambert's is a produce center, the salad bar fruits and veggies
are top-notch, but don't forget, too, about the homemade tuna and
chicken salads, hummus, various cheese, red kidney beans and seemingly
endless offerings of other foods. It's simply an amazing sight, a
great value, and a bit of a challenge on what to choose.
With the salad bar as the main attraction, Lambert's in Westwood seems
to keep getting better and better. A wonderful full-service market that
sells wine, Lambert's also features mouthwatering calzone and hot foods
stations, as well as a burrito bar.
Lambert’s has seen the fruits of its labor evolve through its motto:
“Education by Tradition, Driven by Pride.” The late George Lambert with
brothers Fernand, Pauly and Billy had dreams of owning their own
business when growing up in the South End of Boston. After all serving
in the military, the Lamberts did just that starting their business as
a modest fruit stand on Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester in the early
1950s. Successfully living the American Dream through the years and
surviving fierce Route 1 area competition, the Lambert family business
today proudly looks back to the start of the Westwood location in the
early 1970s and the Dorchester store but with an eye for the future. As
a produce center that sources locally whenever possible, fruits and
veggies still saturate the store in vibrant colors but expansion
without compromise in quality has kept the businesses relevant with
21st century customers.
"My dad once said, ‘If you give people a little more than they expect,
then they will come back,’” said Nino.
It's all great, but I'll start with the salad bar, any day!
