It’s true. At Kelsick Market, we know the customers when they walk through the doors. We know what beer they buy their husbands, what nights they prefer we cook so they can relax and who prefers gluten free snacks. But we want you all to know more about us, too! In this series, we ask the Kelsick team members more about them…things that might not come up when you’re purchasing that bottle of wine or pound of homemade chicken salad for tomorrow’s lunch. Enjoy getting to know us. We’ve enjoyed getting to know you.
