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!
(Greenwood only - coming soon to the brand new Marketime deli along with a whole new sandwich menu!)
Of all the dishes to result from the French influence on the Vietnamese culture, the Bánh Mì sandwich is one of the tastiest. The baguette and mayo may be borrowed from French cuisine, but the addition of jalapenos and cilantro makes this decidedly Vietnamese fare. Our version features an awesome marinated chicken we make in-house, along with our own pickled vegetables & garlic aioli, resulting in layer upon layer of yummy flavors! The early reviews have been fantastic (thank you), so we're going to try and step up our game and offer this one all the time!!
At the heart of our floral department this time of year are tulips, from now through the end of spring and beyond. Our tulips are plentiful, reasonably priced, and available in a wide array of vibrant spring colors. When available, we buy locally from the tulip growers of the Skagit Valley.

We purchase bulk 80 lb. wheels of this delicious and versatile cheese from Italy. Just a few fine shreds will add a rich, full flavor and touch of class to just about any dish you can think of! For a limited time, we are offering any size chunk you like, “fresh off the wheel”, for 16.99 lb. Enjoy!
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!
Ken's Market Soups
Marketime Foods Soups
Introducing, from the owners of Tempero do Brasil in Seattle's U district: Samboroso Brazilan Hot Sauce - cha cha cha!
Ken's is now carrying an authentic, fresh new Brazilian style hot sauce called "Samboroso", derived from 2 words:
Samba (noun): a lively, rhythmic dance originated in Brazil
Saboroso (adj.): a Portuguese word meaning tasty, mouth-watering, enticing
With generous chunks of onion, and hints of garlic and lime, this sauce has been praised by their restaurant customers for over a decade. Watch for frequent in-store sampling in the coming weeks and meet these really nice people. And since you're here, help us decide - is it a salsa or is it hot sauce?
We resolve to keep bringing the most wholesome, freshest, and tastiest foods we can provide. Look for exciting new, healthy, and delicious foods throughout our store in the coming year. Happy New Year!
ELLENOS GREEK YOGURT - Ken's Market and Marketime are proud to now offer a fantastic Greek yogurt from Ellenos, which is a local company that had a store in the Pike Place Market.

We could tell you it's great, but don't take our word for it. Here are a few comments from Ellenos fans on Facebook:
Lisa Gonsalves “This the best yogurt ever!!”
