We are an independent, locally owned grocery store conveniently situated in the heart of Kentland, Indiana. With a full-service deli and meat department, as well as a large array of fresh fruits and vegetables, we have been providing high quality products to local families for over seventy years.

A Commitment To Our Community and Surrounding Towns

The local owners have made significant investments to update the store.  All new LED lighting, refrigeration and HVAC has not only improved the quality of our food, but significantly lowers the energy usage of the store.



At Murphy’s, serving our local Indiana and Illinois customers is our number one priority. We truly care about our local community and every single one of our customers. That’s why you’ll always find us with smiles on our faces, ready to give advice or lend a helping hand. Nothing is too much for the team at Murphy’s – we’re here to help with whatever you need.

Products and Produce

Our meat department is stocked with the freshest quality beef, turkey, chicken, and pork, ready to be custom cut and cooked to your specifications.  With a focus on delivering only high quality meats to our community, we ensure that each cut is prepared with the utmost attention to quality, safety and taste.

We know the difference that high quality produce makes to not only taste but to your overall health and wellbeing. We source the finest produce and everything we sell is carefully chosen to ensure that when you shop at Murphy’s, you are buying only the freshest and tastiest produce in the region.

A Commitment to Our Employees
