We bring good things to the neighborhood

Thanksgiving turkeyKen'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!

Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Feature: GMO Free Diestel Free Range Turkeys!

The Diestel Ranch, in Sonora CA, is a family run operation which practices sustainable farming and is committed to premium quality in every way. Check out the full story at www.diestelturkey.com. Also, we recommend pre-ordering your turkey in advance of the holiday, to insure best size availability. You can either order in person, or call in.Turkeys can be picked up as late as Thanksgiving day to save all-important space in the fridge!

In addition to great turkeys, we'll have lots of home-spun offerings that you can use to cut your time in the kitchen this year preparing your Thanksgiving meal (or enjoy any old time!). For example, we make our own stuffing, our own orange-cranberry sauce, our own turkey gravy, as well as some unique and delicious side dishes. Of course, we have all the wonderful produce you'll need for your feast, including fragrant fresh herbs for all those "special occasion" holiday dishes. We'll have great breads and rolls baked fresh locally, and of course, some yummy pumpkin pies! As always, we're striving to have everything you'd ever want for your Thanksgiving entertaining needs, with an emphasis on fresh, quality, and local!

Our Thanksgiving day hours will be 6 AM to 4PM at both stores for the last minute stuff. Hope you have a great one!!

Marketime Renovation

After years of careful thought and planning, we have finally completed designs and are beginning major renovations to your beloved Marketime. Over time, the old place has worn tired. After exploring a myriad of possible layouts and weighing the pros and cons of each, we have settled on a plan that we think, in the end, you will love.

Our goal throughout this process has been to maintain the traditional Marketime character but with a fresh new look, along with a complete equipment upgrade. The new store, while still having a wide ranging grocery selection, will have an increased emphasis on fresh foods. The deli will be much new and improved, as will the produce and other "perimeter" departments. We're excited for our new refrigerated "beer cave" feature, and remain committed to having the captivating selection that we’ve become known for! We are also adding about 1,400 square feet and turning the aisles the opposite direction. The checkout area will be relocated and all new. Improved spaciousness in key areas, increased natural lighting, polished concrete floors, and some cool new art and decor will be sure to improve your shopping experience as well.

We plan to stay open during the entire remodel, which we hope to complete in a very compact 6 to 8 months. There may be some brief periods of limited service (shorter hours of operation) or even having to close for a very short time. We will do our best to communicate construction schedules and give plenty of advance notice if that does become necessary. We will be making it a priority to keep customer inconveniences to an absolute minimum.

We are excited to bring a new and improved Marketime to the neighborhood. Thanks for your support!

Pumpkin Beer

Pumpkin Beer Time!

Quite possibly the best thing about fall is that it marks the beginning of the Pumpkin Beer season. We have a dozen or so pumpkin beers already, with more coming every day. As always, we are featuring local breweries as much as possible.

Stop on by the beer department and start catching up on what's new with delicious pumpkin beers!

It's Potatis Korv Time!

Potatis Korv is a flavorful Swedish potato sausage, often served as a special traditional dish during the holiday season. Using our beloved Grandmother's recipe, we handcraft these delectable sausages right here at Ken's Market. Read all about our Potatis Korv and how we finally got it right thanks to our Grandmother "Mor Mor".

Guacamole

Our Own Game Day Guacamole!

FootballEvery 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, Mr. Gil 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!

Mousse;

Local Company Spotlight

MONTLAKE MOUSSE - all natural desserts made locally from scratch! We are now selling a variety of their delicious desserts in our deli, including mini chocolate mousses (in 5 different flavors), handmade cookies, and fresh seasonal fruit tarts. Their recipes are sure to please with the ideal balance of sugar, so other ingredients in the dessert are not masked by a mouthful of sugar. Just as too much salt can ruin a good soup, the bakers at Montlake Mousse know that too much sugar can spoil a good dessert!

Bavarian Meats

Old World Sausage and Wieners
from Bavarian Meats

Each morning at dawn the Hofstatter family and their employees arrive at their Western Ave. plant to begin hand crafting their delicious assortment of sausages, wieners, cold cuts, and smoked meats. Each recipe has been carefully handed down over three generations and attention to traditional preparation, including the long dry smoking process, and hand linking are still practiced today. We happily feature these wonderful locally made products in the deli section of our markets. Try some tonight!

Locally Made Cheese and Butter From Golden Glen Creamery

Locally Made Cheese and Butter From Golden Glen Creamery

Just northwest of Mt. Vernon WA, in the town of Bow, there exists a small, healthy herd of Holstein, Guernsey and Jersey cows that are the "ladies of Golden Glen Creamery." The milk given by these lovely ol' gals is what is used to create some of the most delicious cheeses and butters that you'll taste anywhere! If you want butter that is fresh and creamy, cheese that is aged to perfection and big on flavor, and knowing that you're "buying local," come on in to our stores and try some of their all-natural, farmstead products.

Of special interest is their line of Fromage Blancs - A soft, mild cheese often used in place of yogurt and cream cheese. Unlike yogurt, which requires heating to make, the fromage blanc is made at a low tempertaure, preserving the goodness of the milk. Unlike cream cheese, fromage blanc is non-fat and high protein yet still creamy and full of flavor. We are stocking a few flavors, but we do run a "tight inventory" of the fromage blancs in order to keep the product super fresh. Fortunately, the fine folks up the highway bring us a fresh supply on a regular basis, so keep an eye on the cheese case and you're sure to find something to entice you!
