Owner Brian Junkins purchased Friends’ Marketplace from his parents in 2016 and has successfully operated the business with his wife Monila ever since. The farmers market-style grocery store prides itself on its ability to maintain its longstanding tradition of quality products and service while also always bringing in new surprises for their loyal customer base.
In addition to selling grocery items, Friends’ Marketplace also carries a wide selection of beer and wine, and offers customers a bakery, cheese shop, butcher, deli, catering services, and a garden center. Organic and specialty food items are available, as are thousands of varieties of international and domestic grocery options. The store also currently stocks custom-made wreaths for the holidays.
