About Us (2020)

In June 2019, after 45 long years, the Rasmussen family made the decision to close their popular community business as a result of external and personal reasons. Although our storefront is gone, we are exploring new and innovative ways to continue the Milk Pail legacy into the future. We have decided to revive the Milk Pail in the form of an online “pop-up”, to once again serve our local community with longtime Milk Pail favorites.

We are always keeping our eyes peeled for bulk bargains and close-out items. When we find them, we often buy hundreds or even thousands of pounds from the one-time offer – then, we pass the goodies onto you. Our goal is to keep up with the needs of our serious home chefs and food fiends. If there’s something special you’re looking for, we are happy to take your request and seek out the specific product you need.

About Us (1974 – 2019)

The Milk Pail Market first opened way back in February of 1974. Until 1984, we were just a drive thru dairy! Since then, we have grown into a popular open air European market. Our roots are in dairy, and some of those roots have allowed us to become a cheese shop with an unbelievable selection of both local and faraway cheeses. The expansion into produce began back in the late 1980s, and now we purchase seasonally from many growers on the coast, in the central valley, and down in the Hollister-Salinas valley.
