Island Market is a full-service family-owned grocery store on beautiful Orcas Island.
We have been proudly serving our Orcas Island community with quality products, outstanding customer service and inspired progression since 1897. Today, we are the primary grocery store on Orcas Island, providing a full-serve Deli & Bakery, meat department, with butchers on staff, and a produce department with a wide-variety of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. We pride ourselves in offering a unique mix of local products from Orcas Island, the San Juan Islands and the state of Washington, as well as, everything you need for your pantry.
The original store was started by our great-great grandfather, Hugh Wooster Templin, over 125 years ago. Ocertime, the building has moved locations and even changed names from Templin’s Fair to Templin’s General Store, and now Orcas Island Market. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to hiring the best staff and providing the best-quality products to our community and guests. Our staff consists of over 55 year-round employees, plus many local students for Summer support.
In 1972, our father, Dale Linnes, took ownership of Templin’s Store. He carried on our principles of running a successful business instilled in him by his father, Woodrow (Woody) Linnes.
“Take car of your employees, maintain a clean store, and lead with integrity.”
