WANTAGE — The Clove Brook Market is celebrating its 15th anniversary this March.

On Wednesday, March 26, 2003, Rich and Kim Sytsema opened the doors of the Clove Brook Market to a hungry and welcoming community. Fifteen years later, they continue to happily serve up delicious baked goods, overstuffed sandwiches, mouthwatering breakfasts and grab and go dinners to busy customers who prefer homemade style. In the fifteen years since the Sytsemas opened the Clove Brook Market, the business has continually grown. Today, catering small intimate parties and large weddings off premise have become a large part of the business. “We offer a delicious, affordable menu with a staff that is attentive and thorough and we are proud of that.” Kim Sytsema says.

The Sytsemas say their success lies in God’s provision, hard work, loyal customers, and an amazing staff.

“Shannon Farrier and Lois Schipper have both been with us since the very first day. Their hard work, innovation, and dedication to Clove Brook have played a significant role in the success of this journey.”

Shannon started when she was in high school and today is a manager of the bakery division of the Market. Implementing new ideas and keeping things fresh and organized are her strengths.

Lois heads up the deli and dinners-to-go division which is a continually growing part of the business. Regular customers enjoy the month at a glance menu which shows exactly what will be made fresh to pick up each evening.

The Catering division is a growing part of the business that has been providing families an affordable option for weddings. Clove Brook catering can serve most local venues with an amazing staff that truly enjoys what they do, from planning to serving the event.

Rich and Kim are thankful to their local employees, past and present, and their part in making the Clove Brook a place that Munchmobile said is “Worth the trip”. In addition, they are especially thankful for a community that supports local business. “It’s been a joy being a part of this community and serving them.” Kim says. “Looking forward, we will continue to do what we are doing and evaluate ourselves constantly to be sure we are offering what our supportive community is looking for.”

To celebrate the anniversary, look for upcoming specials from March 19-23. The market will be featuring drawings to win t-shirts, coffee mugs, gift cards, and more. There will also be an opportunity to submit ideas for lunch sandwich specials, and selected sandwiches will be added to the menu and participants will win prizes. There will also be bakery specials included in lunches throughout the week.
