Henry’s Farmers Market to Open at The Market Place

Henry’s Farmers Market is slated to open at The Market Place in Summer, 2010. The store will be more than 22,000 square feet and will be located on the Tustin side of The Market Place.

This will be the sixth Orange County location for Henry’s, a high quality, specialty grocery store. Customers will enjoy a selection of the highest quality meat, seafood and produce, along with wine and floral departments, sushi bar, deli, prepared entrees, a bakery and more. Henry’s also offers a variety of organic food and natural health and wellness products.

“We look forward to serving the Tustin and Irvine area residents, and are excited to offer the shoppers of The Market Place a full-service neighborhood grocery store that prides itself on high quality products at affordable prices,” said Aimee Della Bitta, Marketing Manager for Henry’s.

Henry’s Farmers Market established its roots in 1943 as a family-owned business selling truckloads of fresh, local peaches on a street corner in San Diego under the name Boney’s. Since then, Henry’s has opened 32 stores in Southern California and has become a favorite in San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties, by offering that same old-fashioned shopping experience reminiscent of produce stands and neighborhood butcher shops of the 1940s and 1950s.

Henry’s has been named the “best health food store” by readers of the San Diego Union-Tribune and the “best place to buy produce” by readers of The Orange County Register. Recently, Henry’s was named as the “best value” for quality food by Our City San Diego Food Lover’s Guide.

Other recent honors for Henry’s include it being named as “favorite natural food store” by the Daily News Best 2009 Readers’ Choice issue (8/27/09), as well as Henry’s Produce Director receiving national recognition as “Retailer of the Year” this October, by the Produce Merchandiser magazine. Henry’s was also recently voted “Best Gourmet Grocer in 2009” in the Best of ABC
