We bring good things to the neighborhood

Holiday Reindeer

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!

Prime Rib

Simply the Best Prime Rib in Town!

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!

Kens Markets Pickles

We’ve taken up pickling!

Initially, our food-crazed and ambitious sandwich crew started pickling assorted veggies for use on some of our various panini sandwich creations. Then we figured, what the heck, since everyone seems to love them on our sandwiches, may as well offer them for sale. So come check out our variety of savory pickles like local dills (cucumbers), our Banh mi blend, and giardiniera -- either on our sandwiches, or ready to take home and enjoy!

Delicious Delicata Squash

Delicious Delicata Squash

Delicate Squash has arrived! This tasty fall favorite boasts not only creamy texture and sweet potato flavor, it also has many health benefits. 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!

Wintertime is a festive time in our beer department! We have over 20 varieties of outstanding, seasonal winter beers.
