Town & Country Markets Inc. is a regional, locally owned and operated, independent retail grocery company that began in 1957.  Our markets, located throughout the Puget Sound region, include three operating under the Town & Country banner and three under the Central Market banner.
Our Town & Country stores, Ballard Market and Town & Country Markets Bainbridge Island and Lakemont, are neighborhood markets on a relatively small scale. Our three Central Markets – in Poulsbo, Shoreline and Mill Creek – are larger “destination” stores.
All are fresh markets for people who love food. While the stores share many attributes, each is unique in how they serve the needs of their individual communities, by design.
We strive to offer the freshest, highest quality foods available along with a unique mix of products aimed at satisfying the diverse needs and tastes of the communities and customers we serve. Our features include exceptional produce, a wide selection of natural and organic foods, superb fresh seafood, bulk foods, natural meats and ethnic and specialty foods.
Our staff members are friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about good food.
