The Market’s deli and meat counter offers Boar’s Head meat and cheese, and prime grade Black Angus tenderloin and rib-eye at pretty low prices. The steaks can be cut to order, and, of course, you can get your deli stuff in slivers or slabs or whatever suits you. Very soon, the deli case will be home to twice-baked potatoes, pimento cheese, pasta salad, etc. that will be prepared freshly and daily by the Crown and Goose.

From YUMMM!, the Metro Pulse Restaurant Guide:

The grocer’s art is a challenging lot—whether it’s a big-box chain or a neighborhood mom-and-pop store, keeping people and their pantries happy is never a walk in the park. Yet it’s exactly that challenge that HT Hackney has undertaken in its contribution to downtown Knoxville, the Market at Union and Gay.

The Market has a comfortable and warm feel that recalls an old-fashioned general store, and the range of merchandise and foodstuffs supports that feeling. After all, where can you buy a certified Black Angus steak and a custom-designed apron from Maryville’s Molly Said?

As you walk through the store, you can see the transition from convenience items for the quick stop to the dry, fresh, and frozen goods that support more serious shopping. As you enter the Market, there are fresh-baked donuts and hot coffee, grab-and-go foods like sandwiches and hot dogs, and even lottery tickets. There’s a whole wall of candy!

Stepping further in takes you past fresh produce like onions, tomatoes, and fresh fruit and leads you into a small but select grocery. There you’ll find frozen items from pizza and tater tots to tuna. Here also reside the three Ds of the Market: Dry goods, Dairy and Deli. There’s an eclectic blend of merchandise here. You’ll find a whole shelf of Bob’s Red Mill products, plenty of local honey, and Ariston Select olive oil and balsamic vinegar offered in fill- and refill-your-own bottles.

The Market showcases a number of local or regional products like Sweetwater Valley cheeses, Tennessee’s Best condiments, and sweet stuff from Knoxville’s own Fruit and Berry Patch. Even the local brewery, Saw Works, is present among the several beers on tap that are available for take-away in refillable growlers.

One of the best parts of the Market for residents lies beyond the beer and butter in the rear of the building. The Deli and Meat counter offers Boar’s Head meat and cheese, and prime grade Black Angus tenderloin and rib-eye at pretty low prices. The steaks can be cut to order, and, of course, you can get your deli stuff in slivers or slabs or whatever suits you. Very soon, the deli case will be home to twice-baked potatoes, pimento cheese, pasta salad, etc. that will be prepared freshly and daily by the Crown and Goose.

Admittedly, and intentionally, the Market is a work in progress as it strives to find the right mix of goods to satisfy its community. And that’s a good thing because, after all, flexibility and adaptation make for good business—and good neighbors, too.
