Geaux Local

Murray’s Market is a family owned store serving the Ascension Parish community for almost 100 years! Richard Alexander opened the first Alexander’s Grocery in Ascension Parish in 1921. Richard’s grandson, Murray, took over the operations and renamed the 2,000 square foot St. Amant store in 1977. Murray replaced the original building two decades later with a 12,000 square foot modern facility that continues to operate as Murray’s Market today. In 2013, the Alexander family expanded with the opening of Alexander’s Highland Market in South Baton Rouge. Locally owned and operated, our family takes pride in providing our customers with a warm and friendly experience, unmatched customer service, and all your grocery needs.
