Love this place. I have enjoyed them both for catering and just for local lunch bite. the ingredients are fresh and local, the people are friendly, the prices are great. This definitely beats out any chain in the area for catering- both on taste and price. Check them out!

The Town Square Market catered our family's graduation party. The meal was delicious, and the service was outstanding. They worked with us to meet everyone's various dietary needs, so the whole family was happy! Thank you - we'll definitely be back.

The Town Square Market is indeed one of a kind. Their commitment to safe, clean, non-GMO food is like no other grocery store I have ever been to. It's great to shop there with my kids, knowing that everything there is a safe, responsible, and delicious choice. Check out the deli for a great lunch experience.

Why Non-GMO?

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) involve engineering plants and animals with DNA from other species, a method that can't occur naturally or through traditional breeding. Many commercially available foods, particularly those containing corn and soy, are GMO-laden, raising concerns over safety and ecological impacts. Critics argue that genetic modification poses risks such as unforeseen allergens and toxins. Despite pro-GMO claims of sustainability and food security, there's strong demand for clear labeling and organic options, which are free from GMOs and harmful chemicals. Town Square Market promotes non-GMO foods and educates consumers on organic benefits, supporting healthier lifestyles and environmental sustainability.
