Bob & Kathy Alward purchased what is now known as Alward’s Market in 1978 from Gerald and Catherine Wyatt. Mr. Wyatt started Wyatt’s Friendly Market in the 1940’s. His claim to fame was his home cured bacon and hams, which were cured and smoked over an open wood fire. Bob still carries on this old-fashioned technique which sets our home smoked products apart from all others.

Our meats are of the highest quality and are wood-smoked the old-fashioned way, right at our store. This process makes our jerkies, hand-stuffed sausages, German bologna, and metwurst unique and a stand-out amongst all others. Another feature that is becoming a lost art is our full-service meat counter, where you can have your steak inspected and cut to your specifications, just like they did generations ago.

You’re never a stranger for long at Alward’s Market, where we value all of our customers and treat them as friends.
