Ken's Market and Marketime Foods are part of your neighborhood. Independently owned and operated by a local family, we specialize in smiles and remembering your name. Our markets carry a good variety of quality products at fair prices. We mean it when we say “we want to be your store!”
When you need bacon and fresh OJ on a Sunday morning and you're still in your pajama pants, pop over, grab a cart, toss in what you need and checkout before your better half has even finished brewing the coffee!
We're not only a great little neighborhood market, we are your complete grocery store. We have terrific produce with lots of organic choices. Our meat section is stocked with fresh, quality cuts prepared by our own in-house butcher. We are known for our excellent selection of wine and beer. We feature a complete floral department with a fresh selection of gorgeous long lasting bouquets. We are focused on carrying local, organic and fair trade products whenever we can. On top of all that, you will love our deli & coffee shop!
Why does our prime rib roast taste so good? Two reasons:
One, we start with USDA Choice Grade Oregon grown Painted Hills Natural Beef. Because of consistently excellent handling, diet, and stewardship of the land and the animals, these guys always produce some of the best tasting beef in the world, period.
Secondly, our preparation method, though a bit time consuming, makes cooking and serving this roast a snap! The rib bones are removed and all large globs of interior fat are carefully trimmed, leaving just enough to insure lots of great flavor. Ribs are then tied back on so that when the roast is through cooking, simply let it rest for 20-30 minutes, cut the strings, and you’re ready to slice and serve- really easy and soooo good! Also, if desired we will season your roast with our signature blend of fresh herbs, hand chopped garlic, black pepper and kosher salt (costs a little extra). This savory blend is rubbed into every nook and cranny of the roast so that your prime rib will be appropriately salted and seasoned.
We're excited about a new local product we're offering called Maria's Cheese Puffs. No, these aren't the kind of cheese puffs you get in a bag in the chips aisle, these are a traditional Brazilian pastry which we carry frozen and ready for you to bake. After baking, these delicious little puffs turn golden brown, with a crispy crust and chewy center. They are great to serve as finger food, on-the-go breakfast, afternoon snack, or as an appetizer for parties, family celebrations, or the next football game. Your kids will love them, your whole family will too. You'll especially love the fact that they are naturally gluten-free, yeast-free, and made with 100% fresh ingredients. And if that weren't enough to create a craving for them, they are available in 6 different flavors: original, bacon, garlic, jalapeño, oregano and guava. Stop in and pick up a box to try this delectable treat.
Our produce buyers have made a great new connection recently, sourcing fruit directly from the Martin Family, who live and run orchards in the Wenatchee valley. Buying fruit directly from farms is certainly not the easiest way to do things, but we are very proud to offer the premium, tree ripened fruit that the Martin family has been growing for nearly 3 decades. Read more about the Martin Family Orchards at their website.
Currently, we are featuring ripe, flavorful Bartlett Pears and crisp, semi-tart Gala Apples, both right off the tree. Further into the picking season, we'll have Golden Delicious and Fuji Apples along with D'Anjour Pears. Take advantage of and enjoy Washington State's most famous fall harvest!
Every weekend during football season, we will be making our delicious fresh guacamole in our delis. Now this is no ordinary guacamole, mind you. This is the authentic, festive, & lively recipe of Greenwood’s very own “Mr. Gil”, as he is affectionately known. We will make batches 2 or 3 times throughout the weekend, but because of the very perishable nature (no preservatives other than fresh squeezed lime), it will be first come, first served , and when it’s gone, it’s gone. You can pre-order by calling before 10:00 AM, if you want to make sure of getting some. Also, please remember, it’s best enjoyed the day you buy it!
While you’re here, you know you can count on us to have all your other favorite football watching food and bevies. From locally made fresh salsas, to in-house-made veggie plates (with dip), to our ever-increasing selection of beers (micro and macro), we will have everything you need for your game day parties!

Wintertime is a festive time in our beer department! We have over 20 varieties of outstanding, seasonal winter beers. Whether you’re in the mood for a trusty old stand-by like “Jolly Roger” from Maritime Pacific Brewing in Ballard, or something a little more obscure like Kitsap peninsula’s Silver City Brewery “Winterbock”, we’ve got enough choices to make your decision deliciously difficult! Most or all of our winter beers are Northwest brewed, so not only are they super fresh, but you’re also “shopping local” in every way! Also, be sure to check our in-store hot sheet to see what’s on special… we’ve almost always got an awesome winter beer on sale for a great price. Cheers!
Of our delicious potato sausage (or potatis korv as it’s called in Sweden), we know this: No one ever had a better recipe than our late grandmother “Mor Mor” (which means “mother’s mother” in the old country- as little kids we just called her “Moo-Moo”, and the nickname stuck).
In a nutshell, the story goes like this: back in the mid 1980’s, grandson Scott got a recipe for potato sausage from an old butcher acquaintance and thought it would be a good idea to make some to sell at our original Ken’s Market store on Queen Anne. The customers really seemed to like it, and it became a big seller. At the time, we only offered it around the holidays so the recipe would always be put in some random location during the long off season, and it was always an adventure trying to find it the next holiday season. Of course, it was ultimately lost somewhere along the line. But lo and behold, one day when Scott was telling of the loss of the recipe in a conversation with Moo-Moo, she said simply “Oh, well I’ve got a recipe for potatis korv”(as she always called it), and so, we were back in business. But the best part of the story is, Moo-Moo’s recipe rocked! It had the salt, pepper, and allspice but it also had one thing the original recipe didn’t: ginger. Now, we have people tell us all the time it’s their favorite sausage. Try some for the holidays… we think you’ll just love it! And thanks Moo-Moo, we sure do miss you!
