The Fisher Family Market on South Pearl Street in Bridgeton brought together four brothers and their families in the early 1900’s. The market adjacent to the Bridgeton “Train Station” provided fresh fruits, vegetables and cattle. The cattle were brought to process at the modern day slaughter and smoke house that was located behind the store on Lemon Street.
Progress and Growth
As the families grew so did the Fisher’s Markets with locations in Pennsgrove, Cedarville, Millville and multiple facilities in Bridgeton. This included Fisher’s Market at 32 N. Laurel Street which was across the street from the “Super” American Store. The Louis Fisher Market was able to prosper with canned goods and meats, from the early 30’s until the late 70’s.
The one room slaughter house on Almond Road that still partially stands today and the front room meat market near Gerhsal and Almond Roads in Norma are memories of the Kravitz family whose daughter Pauline joined forces in marriage with Ed Fisher more than 70 years ago. They eventually operated Fisher’s Market in Bridgeton and currently, Main Street Supermarket in Millville.
The Main Street location “Main Street Supermarket” was established on March 6, 1973. With 45 years on Main Street the business prospers with a unique mix of fresh foods convenient to the Route 49 corridor. Ed, Pauline and Louis have served generations of families and are proud to be members of the community.
