CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Community members will soon have an additional option for fresh food while visiting Chambersburg Hospital, as a local favorite for more than 50 years will open a Micro Market within the facility.

The Butcher Shoppe, known across the Franklin County area for its freshly and locally prepared foods, will open the market later this summer near the Main Lobby of Chambersburg Hospital.

The Micro Market will be open seven days a week, stocked with salads, soups, sandwiches, entrees, sides, desserts, drinks and snacks. Visitors to the hospital will also have the option to pick up fruit trays, meat and cheese trays, and more from the market.

“We understand it can be stressful and challenging when a loved one is receiving medical care at the hospital, and consistently seek ways to bring comfort where we can to our patients’ visitors,” explained Chambersburg Hospital Chief Operating Officer John Massimilla. “Not only does this Micro Market allow us to better serve our visitors, but we value having a partnership with a local business.”

The Micro Market will be housed in the current space of the Lincoln Way Cafe. The Lincoln Way Café will close in July, and the Micro Market is expected to open in August following renovations.  During that time, visitors are welcome to purchase food and beverages from the King Street Café, located on the Ground Floor of Chambersburg Hospital.
