COVID-19 UPDATE: Sunnyside Market was quick to offer curbside pick up to ensure people who are not able to shop in person can still get quality food. Check out their website for more details.

Sunnyside Market opened it's door in 1997. Customers Patty Nowlin and Pat Guyn having returned from time living in Berkeley California where they were active in local food culture and looking for a change, purchased the Market in 2005. In 2013 they expanded the store and invited friends Michal Lavi and Aviv Fried, owners of Sidewalk Citizen Bakery, to open up a deli bakery in the newly expanded location. Sunnyside Market is committed to supporting local & organic family farms. They recognize and value the importance of the family farm and will deal directly with farmers and producers whenever possible. This provides the freshest, most nutritious and delicious products for their customers and ensures a fair price for the farmer, while also decreasing the food miles associated with the food we eat, minimizing our greenhouse gas production.

They are committed to visiting as many of our local farmers as possible each year. This way they create relationships and community with the people and families who are growing our food. These visits also enable them to become informed to answer any questions you have regarding where and how your food is being grown, how animals are being treated. These farm visits also allow them to hang out with some of the nicest people they know, eat the most delicious meals, enjoy home made cheese, drink mead and be inspired by these wonderful people.
