It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we share the news that the last of the foundational pillars of Potash Brothers has passed away.  Melvin was a Beloved father, husband and grandfather. His passion and dedication to his family and the business he helped found are beyond match and will continue beyond him forever touched by his guiding hand. He will be deeply missed, remembered, and thought of fondly by the many that knew and loved him.

How to Access Potash

As an essential grocery store, in-store shopping is still available. We ask that our customers only have one shopper per household in the store at a given time, and to shop as infrequently as possible to help us reduce in-store traffic.

As always, Potash offers delivery and personal shopping via phone orders or fax orders as an alternative to shopping in-store. The demand for home delivery is very high. We are taking orders on a first come first serve basis. We recommend calling as soon as possible to get in line for your order to be taken. Tap here for more info.

    At Potash Markets, we know shopping for the freshest foods can be a hassle. Traffic, big stores, and long lines can make shopping a frustrating chore. Since 1950, we’ve been the family-owned local alternative to the big guys. We provide every day and specialty items in a smaller, easy in-and-out format. We make daily shopping quicker and easier so you can get on with your day.

We appreciate you.
