95 Years.
Five generations.

What began as a butcher shop in the early 1920's has grown into a nationally-acclaimed, award-winning market; often referred to as a landmark within the community. Palmer’s is known for outstanding customer service, superior quality and unique hard-to-find products. In-store you’ll find an outstanding array of house made prepared foods; the freshest produce, meats and seafood; hard-to-find imported and domestic gourmet foods; plus a complete selection of everyday groceries—all merchandised in a 20,000 square foot spotless environment. Add in the unique offerings found in our gift shop, kitchen store, bakery, flower shop and catering division and you can see why we have been in business since 1921.

Specialty Foods

Our buyers travel the world (and neighborhood) searching for the finest products to carry in our store. Megan, our Culinary Director, traveled from Milan to Sicily over 20 days, through 13 regions, on a Buyers Tour of Italy. She has established relationships with many local producers whose products we now have imported in directly from Italy. Each January we travel to San Francisco to attend the famous Fancy Food Show and attend more than a dozen other food shows throughout the year.

We pride ourselves on carrying one of the largest selections of “hard-to-find” foods and are always up to date on the latest dietary trends and needs of our customers.
