a FAMILY AFFAIR

The Grand Central Market has always been a family affair and staple of downtown since we opened in late 2005. In 2010, we reopened under new ownership, but our focus has remained the same, offering the freshest groceries, deli, breakfast and lunch entrees to the people of Grand Rapids, while treating every customer like a member of the family. Today, the Market is owned and operated by us, the Powell family. Award winning Chef Cheryl, Tom, and Cheryl's spunky daughter Christina. We work together with all our expertise to be the leading local grocery store where downtown Grand Rapids can get what they need and leave feeling like part of The Market's family.
