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.
