Main Street Market is YOUR locally owned & operated, full-service grocery store, located on the corner of State and Main in the beautiful little town of Ferron Utah. This corner has a rich history beginning as a stage coach stop in the late 1800's. The current owners Jim and Sandy Behling started their own family right there on that corner in January of 1977. They lived in a mobile home and then moved into the stage coach stop/converted home. In the fall of 1980 they moved into a home they built in Ferron, after adding two more sons to their family, making way for progress on the store. The land owner had the old stage coach stop burned down and built a convenience store in its place. Several years later the business was added onto and made into a full service grocery store. In 2007, the store was facing the possibility of closing, but Jim and Sandy sprang into action and purchased the business, returning to the place where their roots started growing so long ago.
On March 16th, 2007 Jim and Sandy opened the doors under the name of Main Street Market. Having no prior business experience, they would not be deterred. They set out to help their small community and the surrounding communities have a place where they could locally purchase fresh grocery items.
Nearly 7 years later, Main Street Market is still a work in progress, but a true "labor of love" for the community. Giving the community members a meeting place, where time slows down, where neighbors meet and chat together while picking up the family's meal needs.
Sandy manages the business while Jim has a job at a local mine. The couple believes in old fashioned values and it is reflected in the way things have evolved in the business. Slow but steady. We love to carry our guests groceries to their car because we believe our customers' needs come first. Many high school teens start their first job here, while retired folks can be seen in key positions in the business bringing years of experience to a small operation.
