Dear King Street Market Customer,
In these challenging times we want you to know that we will be open for our regular hours. Because ours is a small store it’s imperative that we are careful to practice social distancing. To follow current health guidelines this may cause us to limit the number of customers who can enter the store at one time. To keep our staff and our customers safe we will be working extra hard to clean and disinfect the store during and at the end of every day above and beyond our usual high standards.
If you prefer you can contact us ahead of time by phone 705-749-6328 with your order and we can prepare it in advance. Be sure to leave your phone number so we can let you know when it's ready. Please note, we currently require one day's notice to fill phone orders.
We understand we are an essential service in our community, and we want you to know that we are doing everything in our power to provide you with the same high quality products that we always have while keeping everybody safe in these unprecedented circumstances.
Welcome to the King Street Market.
Though we’ve been known as the King Street Market since 2006, we have a long, rich history of bringing Peterborough local, fresh and affordable foods. Since 2006, we’ve been voted the “Best Local Butcher” four times. One taste and you’ll see why.
We endeavor to support local, natural and sustainable farming practices using our “85/85 Plan”. This means that 85% of our products are from within an 85 mile radius.
Because we believe the tastiest food is the food less traveled.
The original butcher business was established in 1930 by Ernie Braund, making us not just the best local butcher in the Peterborough area, but also the oldest with a wonderful legacy. It was Sam Chamberlain, who worked at the butcher shop since he was 15 years old that purchased it in 1955. He ran the store as “Chamberlain’s Food Market” until 2005.
It was then that Peterborough native and former-NHL star Herb Raglan and his wife Tammy purchased the butcher shop. They renovated it and renamed it the “King Street Market” that you see today.
With its Peterborough history, heritage and original aspiration to bring fresh, affordable food to the public, the Raglan’s continue delivering delicious goods.
You’ll taste the tradition.
