Grindhouse Killer Burgers “Pay It Forward” Tony Accurso Through December, 2015, Grindhouse Killer Burgers, will be Paying it Forward to the homeless community. As Grindhouse customers buy food, they will be asked if they would like to “Pay it Forward” and contribute the cost of a hamburger to someone in need during this Holiday Season. For those who participate, Grindhouse will place a Burger Badge on our wall with their name displayed. At the end of each week Grindhouse will grill as many hamburgers as there are badges and send them to preselected destinations such as The Trinity House or Gateway House. For over 90 years the Municipal Market has been the hub of this community, and giving back is part of our DNA.

Thanksgiving may be behind us, but the holidays are just beginning. The market offers so many ways to help you get food on the table while still having time to enjoy your family.
Even a hard core chef needs a little help in the kitchen.
- Let one of our produce vendors do the chopping for you. From onions (save the tears), to sweet potatoes, they are all chopped fresh every day.
- For the big day, you can focus on the turkey, ham, or rib roast.
- The market’s selection of restaurants can take care of all your side dishes from salad to dessert!
While you’re at it, give yourself a night off any day of the week.
- Pick up savory pies and mash potatoes, salad, meatloaf, barbeque, jerk chicken, fried shrimp, almost anything you can imagine.
Shop one or put together a meal from two or more. It’s like having your own personal chefs, but without the price tag or the mess.
