History of The Market

Brian (left) and Tim (right) have taken over. This picture was taken in front of the same section of the market as the picture above of Paul and Dorothy....this time with the new Ford delivery truck.

Where it all began...

Wayne (left) and Paul Jr. (right) are both of Paul's sons.  They took over the business and continued to run, operate, and help build what Thoma's is today.  In this photo, they are standing in the smoke house, which happens to be the same building that is across the street of the store building.  They have since retired, but you will still see them on the cutting floor or making deliveries!

Wayne & Junior are passing the torch to their sons, Tim and Brian, in 2001.  Tim and Brian are cousins and the partners who are responsible for Thoma Meat Market today!

Meet Wayne and Junior...

Passing it on to the next generation...

The above left photo is of Mr. Paul Thoma and his wife Dorothy, the first generation of Thoma Meats.  The photo to the right is in front of the first delivery truck - at the new building.  The building in the background of this picture is still the original building of what our store and butcher shop is today. We have added on a bit, but the original boards and memories are still here.



The photo to the left is from a local paper introducing Paul and Dorothy as the new butcher in town.  The building in this photo was located on Main Street Saxonburg for the first few years of business before we moved down the road to expand.
