This market is still owned by the same family that owned it in the seventies. Food is outstanding. Service is wonderful. They carry British non-perishables that I cannot find anywhere else. The pub pies are incredible.

We always stop by for some pies whenever we're in the area... The hardest part is picking a flavor, they have so many and they are all delicious! We are also big fans of their Italian sausages...the BBQ one is a must try!

This is a store and not a restaurant, but it might as well be a take out joint. Their pot pies are very good and they have a ton of flavors.

Im not sure you would get a recipe...There are not many places in this area that sells tomato sausage. I do know Butcher Boy in North Andover MA & Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond NH sells them but not as good as Thwaites!!
