About Crozet Market
Crozet Market is a locally-owned, independently-operated grocery store, deli, and butchery in Albemarle County.
The grocery store first opened its doors in 1947 under the name "Red Front Stores." The store affiliated with IGA (the Independent Grocers Association) in 1967 and became "Crozet Great Valu," part of SuperValu stores, in 1997. In 2016, owner and operator Jean Wagner retired and sold the store to several locals: Crozet Shopping Center owners Mark Green and Kurt Wassenaar, and Raphael Strumlauf, owner of Market Street Market in downtown Charlottesville.
While Crozet Market went through several iterations before settling as it exists today, one trait has remained constant all these years: a true dedication to customer service. Whether it's the produce manager who jokes with you as he points out the season's best local tomatoes or the bagger who helps you pile groceries into your car on a rainy afternoon, true customer service shines through with every visit to Crozet Market. After all, we think it's the customers that make this business truly special.
