There's something special about the neighborhood market—knowing where your food comes from—It's a fleeting institution with the big box stores, and retailers seeming to be everywhere 

But there's one Bakersfield family bringing back the concept of that neighborhood market, one that has been around 1955. 

Step inside the wood-dale market-and into the Vasquez family business.

Their desire to make the customer feel at home, reflected in all they do here—Bringing back the nostalgia of the boutique grocery and butcher experience.

It was 12-years ago the Vasquez family purchased the store on Stine Road, between Belle Terrace and Stockdale Highway—Seeing an opportunity to restore the feeling of a true neighborhood market.

Wood-dale market offering the highest quality meats—from choice rib eyes, herb and butter stuffed pork chops and fresh chicken—To their flagship, and most popular offering hand stuffed sausages, more thirty different varieties available. 

It's what motivated them to open a second wood-dale market location ¦in Seven Oaks—at the Grand Island Village—Where they offer a BBQ experience, and replica market
