“Kim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The Shady Maple Complex is AWESOME!!!!!! The Smorgasbord beats ANY of the others hands down! Their baked goods are fabulous. The market is phenominal with the produce and meats/smoked meats. We took a huge cooler with us this year and filled the thing full. Don't do anything else until you first go to Shady Maple. The others unfortunately pale in comparison.....take our word for it...we tried them all and won't go anywhere now but Shady Maple!!!!

“I do all of my grocery shopping here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

You can't beat the prices on their meats, produce and sandwich meat. They have an amazing selection of everything! They have a beautiful bakery section and great cakes.

“a large amount of items to buy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This food store in front of the famous smorgasbord restaurant offers a large variety of food stuff and other typical supermarket items. They have lots of bulk items. They have a great spice section, a great candy and nuts area, as well as loose tea and cereal areas. The fresh produce section is large and contains lots of local grown items and if you know anything of the region, you know that means lots of great items because of the rich farmland surrounding the area. They have bargains, but you better know your prices because not everything is a bargain. Some items are higher priced.

“This place is HUGE.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We went here to kill some time before going to go the Buffet next door. This place is huge. Lots of local goods for sale and normal groceries. Prices for the local goods were very reasonable. Bought some baked goods and they were delicious. We have been to the area before and had never stopped here. We are glad we did and we will go back when in the area.

“health hazard”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

health dept has a long list of violations- can't believe they are still open. You would think that the market would have to shut down with all of the violations, but I guess when you are the largest business (they own the whole complex there) you can get away with that type of stuff.
