Our Door County Market
Steve Northrop is the meat manager at Main Street Market, in addition to his role as one of the owners of the store! Steve kind of fell into meat cutting as a career many years ago in Valders, Wisconsin at Callsen’s Market.
The Main Street Market meat department is full-service, with a meat cutter on staff all hours the store is open. They can cut anything to your specifications and relish special orders. Certified Angus Beef, Smart Chicken, Farmland Pork, lamb and veal are all part of the meat department product line.
We also have a fresh fish case, featuring local varieties when available and lots of other options as well.
We’ve been accused of strategically locating the oven vent and exporting the delectable smell from our ovens into the parking lot and surrounding airspace. If your olfactory senses aren’t stirred outside, they will be once you are inside! And believe me, everything tastes as good as it looks.
The staff bake an incredible amount of product during the season, and just enough the rest of the year. Special orders for parties and events are always welcome and our friendly staff will take good care of you.
With the last addition, we decided to move the bakery to the front of the store. Pour yourself a cup of freshly brewed Door County Coffee and sit at the counter under the front window; it’s a great place to read the paper and see who is out and about in Egg Harbor.
Kyle Bley is the produce manager of Main Street Market, only the third in our history! Produce is one of the most perishable departments in the store, and most affected by seasonality. Not only the seasonality of Door County, but also of Mother Nature!
The availability of fresh produce from all over the world radically changed the foods people eat. One interesting fact about produce is that when it is cheap, it is at its peak! Produce pricing is all about supply and demand, and when in season it is plentiful and needs to be sold.
Main Street Market has always purchased as much locally grown produce as possible, long before the “know your farmer” movement and growth of farmer’s markets. We believe it is important to support our local farmers and wish the growing season in Door County was a little longer and more predictable.
The produce department is prominently located in the front of the store and very important to our mix of fresh, quality products.
In 2009 the Main Street Market was voted Best Specialty Food Deli in Door County Magazine.
The deli and bakery were part of the meat department in the original store; they quickly outgrew their allotted space! The 1991 addition featured a much-expanded deli area, and when the bakery moved out, the deli easily and happily – expanded once again.
The large variety of meats, cheeses and salads is perfect for anything you want to do in Door County. Whether a picnic, dinner party or horsdouvres on the deck, we have something delicious. Teri Madden has successfully enriched the palates of our customers and is constantly bringing in new and unusual foods to complement the essential products that are the backbone of an exceptional deli department. She can make any kind of tray or special salad; we welcome special orders!
Our well-trained staff makes hundreds of sandwiches a day, in addition to paninis, pizzas, salads, dips and spreads. We stock cheeses from around the world, and many from the state of Wisconsin! The addition of the Boar’s Head brand of deli meats and cheeses emphasizes our commitment to quality products and good food!
