We bring good things to the neighborhood

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!”

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!

Delicious Delicata Squash

Delicious Delicata Squash

It’s high in vitamin C, beta carotene and relatively low in calories! We will be featuring this savory squash in a variety of seasonal items throughout our deli.

Guacamole at Kens

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Football

Fall means pumpkin spice lattes are plentiful and gourds become acceptable home décor, but most importantly it means the football season is upon us!

Ken’s and Marketime has all of your game day needs covered, from our extensive beer selection featuring local favorites and classic staples, to our fresh house-made dips and salsa, including pico de gallo.

Mr. Gil

We’re also starting up the season on our Game Day Guacamole! This delicious guacamole is made in-house with fresh ingredients. We will be making this tasty “guac” throughout the weekend during the football season. But due to high demand it’s best to come in Saturday, early Sunday or call ahead to pre-order because once it’s gone it’s gone. Due to its very perishable nature (no preservatives other than fresh squeezed lime), it’s best enjoyed the day of purchase.

So don’t wait until the coin toss to find out all you have for snacks is a half empty bag of Pirate's Booty. As the great football coach Bear Bryant once said:

"It's not the will to win that matters - everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters."

So get your game face on and prepare for the next game day festivities by heading over to Ken’s or Marketime. We’re a one-stop shop for the 12th man’s game day essentials!

Washington Peaches

Peachapalooza!

Peaches are at their sweetest and juiciest! This year we are featuring two local suppliers for fresh and delicious peaches. Pence and Martin family orchards grow some of the most luscious peaches Washington has to offer.

Pence Orchards located in lower Yakima Valley is a fourth-generation family farm. Their renowned Pence peaches are available once a year and are only handled twice once by the picker and once by the packager to preserve their delicious flavor.

Martin Family Orchards has been family run since 1986 by Rick, Terri and their three sons. Martin Family peaches are picked tree ripe to create the best texture and flavor for their fruit.

Enjoy these delectable peaches while they are in season! They are delicious simply fruit in hand with juice dribbling down your chin or in your favorite peach recipes. Checkout some of the ways we are incorporating peaches into our deli selections, like our peach and prosciutto Panini with basil pesto mayo and arugula on a fresh baguette.

Blueberries

Come on in for Plump, Ripe, Local Blueberries!!

It's peak season for Washington blueberries, and this year's crop has been of excellent quality! Sourced from reliable, trustworthy local farms, you can count on us to have great blueberries throughout the season (well into August and even September!) Because they come immediately to market, these berries can be picked fully ripe, for maximum sugar content.

Loaded with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, blueberries are widely touted as a "superfood", because research has shown they assist in mopping "free radicals" - those nasty little things that damage our cell integrity, and can mess with our all-important DNA! They are also low in calories, high in fiber, and loaded with vitamin C. Studies have also suggested they can reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, and improve prostate health. Oh and one other thing, they are really good on vanilla ice cream! See ya in the produce department (and the frozen food aisle)!!
