|Who We Are
Larry's Market started experimenting with
new foods and trends in the early 1960's when Larry Ehlers
was an employee of Brown Deer Market and when fresh cut flowers,
frozen foods and perishables were not exactly staples in your
local grocery store. Larry's fascination with the new and
exotic helped turn this established neighborhood business
into the first specialty food store in Milwaukee.
Today, tracing the 100-year plus history of the Brown Deer
shop is like tracing the history of specialty food in Milwaukee,
because in a real sense, Larry's Market gave birth to the
specialty food market here. The shop maintains its edge in
the rapidly growing specialty food business by listening to
customers, staying flexible and being open to new ideas.
