Local Heritage & Great Food

Oldest Grocery Store in North Carolina

This family-owned business was founded in 1890 and moved to its current location in 1940. In recent years, our old-timey grocery store has expanded its famous full-service meat market, where you can find an array of hand-cut meats as well as our signature Charlie’s Sage Sausage, and added a delicious deli section, along with new selections of gourmet items, fine wines, craft beers, cheeses and fresh produce.

We are also famous for our official Coon Dog Day merchandise, featuring T-shirts, ball caps and visors, sweatshirts and more. Learn more about Saluda’s renowned Coon Dog Day here.
