MKT: a Love Story

MKT was born in the summer of 2015 from a love of good food and great community. Its owners, Ali Hartman and June Lupiani, are friends, foodies, and moms with a love of their homes in Grafton. They wanted to build something great in this little community. Something designed to deliver goodness, kindness, deliciousness in everyday moments. They knew their experiences and skills were worth more together than apart, so they joined forces and jumped in. The women are working together to bring the concept to life, creating menus, restoring a 200 year old building, designing events, and gathering neighbors. But they could never have done it alone. A big thank you to all the people who are part of this journey. Farmers who feed us, friends who nourish us, organizations who strategize with us.

MKT is the product of our passion and our purpose. We couldn't be more excited to share it with you.
