Town & Country Markets Inc. is a locally owned and operated independent retail grocery company. Founded in 1957 when John and Mo Nakata and Ed Loverich opened the Town & Country Thriftway on Bainbridge Island, we currently operate six stores in the Puget Sound area. Our Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island, Ballard Market and Greenwood Market operate under the Town & Country banner. These are truly “neighborhood” markets, and each is as unique as the communities they serve. The Central Market concept was born with the opening of Central Market in Poulsbo in 1995. In 2000, our Shoreline Thriftway was remodeled to become our second Central Market. The third Central Market opened in September of 2004 in Mill Creek. The Central Markets are “destination” food stores, as the broad scope of quality, selection and value offered entice folks not only within the neighborhood to shop, but also people from surrounding areas.
