Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 10.47.51 PMOne of the many nice features of Foodie’s Markets is that they are family-owned and in addition to their South Boston location they also operate stores in Boston’s South End and in Duxbury. In 1998, Victor Leon Sr. took over the old ABC Market in Boston’s South End and transformed it into Foodie’s Urban Market. In 2007, Foodie’s opened their second store in the center of Duxbury. Nearly twice the size of the South End store, the Duxbury store has also become an integral part of the community. Foodie’s objective in all their stores is to be the friendly neighborhood grocery store where service and selection is most important. Speak- ing to many local residents and customers, there seems to be no doubt that Foodie’s is going over and above meeting those goals. The Markets are now run by Victor Leon Jr. So whether you’re shop- ping for dinner, planning a special occasion, having a house party or doing your everyday or weekly shopping, try out Foodie’s Market for their extensive selections at af- fordable prices.

Yet, as good as Foodie’s has be- come at pleasing its customers, it continues to add new features. Collaborating with Boston Sword and Tuna, which is located at the Southie Waterfront, Foodie’s now offers cooked lobster. It can be purchased daily or if a hot lobster is desired, it can be ordered a day ahead. Foodie’s also offers fresh daily Cod, Salmon, Tuna and all other seafood selection to please a large variety of tastes.

The staff at Foodie’s is responsive to a fault at serving the South Boston Community. Whether it’s Dave, the manager or every member of the enthusiastic staff, they have become friends with many locals and are proud to be part of this neighborhood. And at every opportunity, they give back by supporting many lo- cal worthy causes. They make an effort to deal with customers not only on a professional level but on a personal level as well and it’s appreciated by the shoppers as they have built a large and loyal customer base that seldom go anywhere else for their grocer- ies. They even offer a 10% senior citizen discounts every Tuesday. Good prices, the freshest foods and a staff that’s always there to assist in a friendly manner make shopping at Foodie’s Market not just a smart choice but a pleasant experience as well.
