Joe’s Food Center, established in 1979, is the main provider of groceries, food and service in the town of Upton. Just a few of the main reasons to shop local is their meat department, which features a full-time on-site butcher, full-service deli, serving donuts in the morning, to pizza, chicken, and other fried food in the afternoon. Joe’s Food Center features an in-house coffee shop, which serves specialty drinks, made from Dark Canyon Coffee Company. The employees at Joe’s Food Center stand by the community’s motto, “Think Upton First”, and thank you for shopping and supporting local!
