The Kremer’s Market Story:
A Family-Owned Grocery Since 1977
For three generations, Kremer’s has served northern Kentucky families and travelers as a family-owned, local grocery and speciality store. Just like the generations of customers who have shopped the Market, each generation has had a hand in making the Market what it is today.
The story begins over a century ago, in 1914, when Frank and Julia Kremer started farming for a living. Frank and his son Urban sold produce at their farm in Villa Hills, door-to-door and at local markets. Over time, Urban’s sons joined their father and grandfather. To serve their growing customer base, Urban built the red barn at Buttermilk Pike and Overlook Drive in Crescent Springs, Kentucky in 1977 (less than 0.3 miles from the family farm). Urban operated the barn as a Market seven days a week, from April through October. Much of the produce was grown on the farm, and in the winter months, planted and nurtured in adjacent heated greenhouses.
When Urban died in 1983, the farming era of the Kremer family ended—but the Market continued. His son Kevin began sourcing local produce, and in 1988, added a second barn on to the original and extended the hours to year-round. Inspired by the Heist Family Fish and Poultry Shop at Findlay Market in Cincinnati, Kevin also invited his sister “Sis” and her husband Warren Heist to lease space for a deli in the Market. Once the deli opened, the Market soon offered fruit and gift baskets, party trays and specialty items, too.
On November 14, 1994, Warren and Sis Heist purchased the Market from Kevin. Their children, Amy Hoerlein, Tom Heist and Emily Heist, joined them and now run the Market. The family tradition continues.
