This map shows retail food stores inspected by the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets, using state-provided data analyzed by Patch.
Clicking on the map markers will display summary information on the retail food store’s most recent inspection in our records, and the store’s history of failed inspections, if any. Some of the most recent inspections may be of limited scope, intended to check only that the store has corrected serious problems.
A store fails an inspection if an inspector notes any critical deficiencies -- serious hazards to food safety that need to be fixed immediately. General deficiencies are less serious, but still should be corrected by the inspector’s next visit, officials said.
The records provided by the department are current through March 26. An establishment may have been inspected since that time, but the department has not agreed to provide updated inspection information on a continuous basis. Therefore, Patch plans to update the information monthly by filing new requests.
Because of limitations in the address data provided by the state, some establishments could not be shown on the map. In some cases, the addresses of stores have been corrected by Patch.
Readers are invited to email our data team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Patch is making available two public records -- a MySQL database (converted from the original Access 2007 format) that contains inspection records and related information, and the Inspectors’ Field Operations Manual, which lists abbreviations and codes used in the database.Close
