Martha Stewart Essentials is an assortment of the fundamental products necessary to start a new home or supplement what you already own. The line offers cookware sets, top of table, textiles and bath items at an affordable price, and made with the high-quality materials and craftsmanship expected from the brand.

Martha Stewart Food includes baking mixes, drink mixes, pantry staples like olive oil, pasta and pasta sauce, as well as seasonal items for Valentine’s Day, Easter and Summer grilling. The recipes were developed to yield the best results, taste like they were made from scratch, and help consumers cut back on preparation time.

“I am thrilled to add Essentials and Food to the Martha Stewart Collection. We created Essentials to provide affordable home basics, in the quality expected from our brand, for a younger consumer,” said Martha Stewart. “Our food assortment is delicious, practical, and fun! It is also the first food collection created for Macy’s, which I am pleased to pioneer. During development it was extremely important to me that each item tastes homemade, and I can’t wait for customers to enjoy all of the wonderful recipes.”

"For more than a decade, the Martha Stewart Collection has offered a broad selection of well-designed, high quality products, created exclusively for Macy’s customers," said Jeff Kantor, Macy’s chief merchandising officer. "Our shoppers already invite Martha into their homes through Macy’s extensive selection of entertaining and decorating items, bedding, cookware, and more, so the addition of home essentials and packaged foods is a natural extension to an existing assortment that our customers love."

The Martha Stewart Collection has been available exclusively at Macy's since 2007, providing a distinctive and broad range of high-quality, beautifully designed home essentials. Inspired by Martha's favorite things, it encourages customers to create their "dream home." The collection encompasses a variety of home goods, including bed and bath textiles, housewares, casual dinnerware and serveware, cookware and holiday items. Also available at Macy's from the Martha Stewart Collection is Whim™, an exclusive assortment of textiles and tabletop products in fun, playful prints and colors.

“This is an exciting expansion for the Martha Stewart brand created for Macy’s. In addition to targeting a younger customer, we are also expanding into a new category of food – an area that has strong brand appeal,” said Carolyn D’Angelo, President of Sequential Brands Group’s Home division.
