Prepared products (salads, baked bean, etc.) are the best anywhere. It is not a sit-down restaurant. They are famous for their pork pies, and other fillings.

This market has been there since I moved to Methuen in 1952 and probably longer. They are known all around for the meat pies and one of their daughters was class queen the year I graduated high school. One place I worked in Haverhill used to order lunch in sometimes and we had the meat pies many times. Still drop in once in awhile for a bit of nostalgia. Great little piece of the history of my town. It's not a restaurant though, it's a market with take-out.

Thwaites' Market has been a neighborhood staple for over 70 years; they're a family-owned business that has kept up their excellent reputation. Their sausages and meat pies are hot sellers as well as other cuts of meat and fresh salads. It's amazing to see such a small operation that still keeps its customers despite competition with the big chains. AND they still have the same wooden floor from forever1

This market is still owned by the same family that owned it in the seventies. Food is outstanding. Service is wonderful. They carry British non-perishables that I cannot find anywhere else. The pub pies are incredible.
