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!
Why does our prime rib roast taste so good? Two reasons:
One, we start with USDA Choice Grade Oregon grown Painted Hills Natural Beef. Because of consistently excellent handling, diet, and stewardship of the land and the animals, these guys always produce some of the best tasting beef in the world, period.
Secondly, our preparation method, though a bit time consuming, makes cooking and serving this roast a snap! The rib bones are removed and all large globs of interior fat are carefully trimmed, leaving just enough to insure lots of great flavor. Ribs are then tied back on so that when the roast is through cooking, simply let it rest for 20-30 minutes, cut the strings, and you’re ready to slice and serve - really easy and soooo good! Also, if desired we will season your roast with our signature blend of fresh herbs, hand chopped garlic, black pepper and kosher salt (costs a little extra). This savory blend is rubbed into every nook and cranny of the roast so that your prime rib will be appropriately salted and seasoned.
Please order ASAP to ensure availability; we can do any size ranging from 2.5 pounds (1 bone) to up to 15 pounds (whole rib - 7 bones).
'Twas the week before Christmas, it was easy to tell,
The scent of fresh garlic, the shoppers could smell;
The rib roasts were trimmed by the butcher with skill,
And these were Painted Hills, many orders he would fill!
We've been working to perfect our recipe and we think we've got the best Spinach-Artichoke Dip in town! We use fresh raw garlic, as well as smooth, mellow roasted garlic, along with Parmigiano Reggiano and other wholesome ingredients to create a dip that's sure to be a hit with your guests. We have it in 2 sizes, each comes in a foil tin which can be placed directly in the oven (remove plastic cover first). Just pick up one of our La Brea baguettes to go along with (slice thinly and toast for the perfect crostini) and you're going to be serving something great. Available now through the holiday season. Cheers!
Wintertime is a festive time in our beer department! We have over 20 varieties of outstanding, seasonal winter beers. Whether you’re in the mood for a trusty old stand-by like “Jolly Roger” from Maritime Pacific Brewing in Ballard, or something a little more obscure like "Snow Beer'd" winter ale from Peddler Brewing (they brew in Ballard as well), we’ve got enough choices to make your decision rather difficult! Most or all of our winter beers are Northwest brewed, so not only are they super fresh, but you’re also “shopping local” in every way! Also, be sure to check our in-store hot sheet to see what’s on special… we’ve almost always got an awesome winter beer on sale for a great price. Just remember too, a winter beer "care package" can make a great last minute gift idea!
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!

We've made a great purchase on these beautiful fish which were caught during the peak of the run, filleted, pin bones removed, then vac sealed and flash frozen. For a limited time, we'll be offering them at a super saver price of just 8.99 lb. (whole sides only). These are perfect to put in your freezer and enjoy all winter long. You'd never know you weren't eating salmon fresh off the boat!
Our featured cheese is Leyden, also called Cumin Cheese, and is an artisan cheese produced in the Leiden area of the Netherlands. Leyden Cheese is similar to Gouda, but with a lower fat content, and features a wax rind, yellow color, and a spicy, buttery, and tangy taste. Try pairing this with one of our ice-cold Winter Beers to make a fantastic winter time treat!
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".
Every 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, 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!
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!
