About Us

The excellent service you have come to expect at your local Jubilee markets is brought to you by Steve Trout and Lorne Peters of the SNL Food Group, who assumed ownership of the market in April of 2000.

Mr. Trout's number one goal is to insure that the store be community oriented and that they carry special programs that supported community clubs and organizations will be reinstated. "We are a community operation and we want to get input from people in the community," said Mr. Trout.

Mr. Peters, who formerly worked for Fleming Company that owned Jubilee markets, said that providing the best quality produce, meats and seafood were top priorities. Including:

  • Service meat departments with U.S.D.A. Choice beef, extra tender pork – no pumped pork
  • Grade A chicken, high quality seafood, and fresh deli products.
  • Produce departments bringing you the very freshest fruits and vegetables. Jubilee Foods strives to support local farmers, and will carry local produce whenever possible, ensuring you of that farm fresh taste and quality.
  • Full line of grocery products at exceptional pricing.
The Emmitsburg story has a unique history; we will compile their stories and offer it to local Historical societies so their rich histories never get lost.

For example, our Emmitsburg store sits upon the original homestead of Emmitsburg Revolutionary War hero - Henry William's. Originally Called Fort Henry, it's original boundaries now comprise Emmit Gardens, the new Silo Hill development, the planned interface housing development, the Rt. 15 visitor center, the Sleep Inn, and of course, the Jubilee.  Please take the time to read each of their stores - we'll try hard to live up to the quality of the people that trod this ground before us.

Since it’s purchase the Jubilee has gone through constant changes and upgrades. The major remodel in 1999 added approximately 8,000 square feet to the store of which most went to the actual shopping area. Throughout the time between 2000 and 2006 there has been many smaller in-store changes made which include addition of new deli cases, frozen seafood cases, service meat case, and frozen food display case. New shelving units and the addition of a 1600 square foot addition for storage.
