About Us

Renovating an old building in June 1999, the Winthrop Marketplace was brought to life by Marc Wallerce, Frank Carideo, and Karen Higginbotham. Our store is an absolutely beautiful place to shop, with a friendly staff and variety, value, and quality in all their products. We strive to make your shopping experience pleasant, speedy and courteous, and will go above and beyond your expectations in customer service. Each of our department managers have many years of experience and extensive training in their respective fields. Most have worked for the large food store chains in the area, and bring with them extensive customer service experience. We are pleased to help you in any way. Special orders are never a problem in any of our departments, and our friendly staff can provide you with custom meat orders, custom baskets from our Bakery or Produce Departments, to party platters and holiday meals made fresh upon request.

The Winthrop Marketplace is directly involved in the community, through employment of many local people. Many of the employees are students; for most, this is their first experience in the working world, and many stay with us through their college years. The Winthrop Marketplace also supports many local charities and activities.

Recently, the Winthrop Marketplace participated in a Register Tapes Program in support of our local schools. As a result, the following equipment was purchased for our schools:

    Arthur T. Cummings School
  • One Gallon Elmer's Glue
  • Elmer's Glue Pump
  • Large Container of Sidewalk Chalk
  • Foam Ball Set
  • Jump Ropes
  • Washable Markers
  • Crayons
  • Grade 5 Recess Pack


    Winthrop Middle School
  • 8 Dozen Dunlop Tennis Balls
  • 12 Pack of Wing Feathers


    Fort Banks School
  • Jump Ropes
  • 42-piece Gradestuff School Pack
  • Kindergarden Recess Pack


    Winthrop High School
  • Overhead Projector

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all our customers for their generous support to The Winthrop School System.  We hope to continue these types of programs in the future, as the future is our children
