Celebrating 40 Years of Choice!

40th article graphic

Market of Choice is 40! Thank you for your support over the last four — we are so proud to call you our customers. Any store can be a Market, but it's you who makes us Market of Choice.

MARKET OF CHOICE IS FAMILY-OWNED


In 1979, Dick and Marsha Wright opened their first grocery store in Oregon. Since then, they've watched their family's business become the second largest grocer in the state, with 10 stores in Oregon, to offer natural foods and organic produce.

Dick and Marsha credit their children, including their son and now CEO Rick Wright, for taking the company to the next level. And their children credit their parents for staying focused on what's most important-customers and family.

KEEP IT LOCAL!


When you shop with us, you're choosing an independent grocer that employs local people and believes in buying and carrying local foods, including more than 7,000 products from Oregon farmers, ranchers and food producers. We support local vendors, so you can too!

HOW WE HELP FOSTER A HEALTHY COMMUNITY


Groceries
Healthy foods help build healthy bodies, and fun treats and snacks make celebrations and time with friends and family that much more meaningful.

Gathering
Community happens best over a meal, drink or even afternoon tea. We're glad you use our meeting spaces and dining areas to connect with others or indulge in some solo time. On a larger scale, Venue 252 - a Market of Choice company in Eugene - has held many happy events within its modern walls.

Giving
Visit our website to see many other ways we make a difference in our community through donations, events, fundraisers and more. We couldn't do it without your support!

THANK YOU, OREGON!


"On behalf of the entire Market of Choice family, I’d like to thank our customers, communities and vendors for supporting us for 40 years.

We’re proud to be Oregon’s largest family-owned grocer, with more than 1,300 team members, supported by hundreds of local food and beverage producers. We make it our mission to provide high-quality, innovative choices for every lifestyle, as well as locally sourced products and familiar brands that you trust.

Here’s to 40 more years of serving you and our communities."

- Rick Wright, Market of Choice Owner and CEO
