Our neighbourhood store on the corner of River and Balsam Streets has been serving Thunder Bay for more than 45 years. Established in 1961 by Danny’s parents, George and Dolores Thompson, we continue their commitment to provide the outstanding service, friendly people and fresh food guarantee that will keep you coming back year after year.
These traditions are at the heart of George’s Market. At George’s, fresh produce with exceptional service has always been our promise. We take pride in our full service fresh meat and deli counter, where the finest cuts of meat are available. We bake fresh bread, buns and pastries daily, and have delicious locally made desserts to tempt you.
George’s Market supports local producers. Locally made cheese, as well as cheese imported from around the world, is here for you. In season, we stock corn, peas, beans and so much more from Belluz Farm and DeBruins Farm. Delicious beefsteak, cluster and vine-ripened tomatoes are everyone’s favourites.
Plan to do some preserving? In season, fresh dill, cucumbers, beets and wild blueberries can be found at George’s. Is winemaking your passion? We have a fine selection of wine juices imported from California and Italy to choose from. Do gourmet items interest you? We have gourmet oils, vinegars, sauces, jams, seasonings….and so much more!
We offer something for every season of the year. Choose lush flowers and plants from our greenhouse in the spring and summer, get spooktakular Halloween pumpkins, cornstalks and other harvest goods in the fall, and bring the family down during the holiday season to find the perfect Christmas tree.
Our mission is to provide an enjoyable shopping experience in a nurturing and inviting atmosphere. We support healthy living by providing the finest products available at reasonable prices, and combine this with outstanding customer service.
We welcome you to George’s Market!
