Delightful little store with excellent sandwiches and all the other little things you might have forgotten but don't feel like going back to the grocery store to get. The owner and employees are very nice and have a friendly way about them and a good sense of humor. I've been going here for 20+ years and the new owner (last 4 years or so) is terrific. It gets crowded at lunchtime, so order ahead for pick-up.

A great convenience store and deli right in the heart of the Village Shires community. The folks there are very friendly and neighborly if you are a regular or a newbie. Great sandwiches and salads and a wide assortment of beverages and ice cream.

The Market at Village Shires is one of many neighborhood delicatessens in the area that I frequent. However, some things really set this one apart from the many. In the other delicatessens/markets, I always get prompt, friendly (if not cheerful) service at reasonable prices.
The Market sets itself apart by offering a dirty setting once you can get through the throng of snot nosed skateboarders outside. Surely, these rude skateboarders must be friends of the rude, surly clerks inside. The clerks' attitudes are not surprising considering that the proprietor, Duane, is the rudest of the bunch. This morale must be passed down from him to them to the customer. That being said, the food is below average but you won't get poisoned. That is a good selling point because you should expect to pay well above what is reasonable when shopping apparently because of the convenience of being in the neighborhood. For instance, the price of 16 slices of Kraft American will set you back about $7.00 and cigarettes and coffee prices are the highest in the land. Dunkin' Donuts is right next door for the best coffee and better bagels and they also smile and say "thank you" as if they appreciate your business. That always makes one feel good. The proprietors of The Market may want to stop in and see how rich people run a business. Also, if you use the deli, expect to wait a ridiculous amount of time to get your order completed and in my experience, incorrectly.
All that being said, unless you are in a bind (that's when I go) and have no other choice, the deli/market at 295 Buck Road is better and the supermarkets, of course, are much better and cheaper than any of these mom and pop operations. If you can't make coffee at home and need to get it on the road, Dunkin' Donuts is two doors down from The Market and very, very clean.

The Market at Village Shires recently reopened after a total makeover. Formerly known as the Village Shires Deli, they were well known for their sandwiches. We recently had the occasion to try out their sandwiches. I can honesly say they are better than ever. The selection of other groceries is much less than with the previous owner, however. Hopefully, the selection will increase as business does.
