Who We Are
John Willey purchased Johnnies Meat Market in the early 70’s and moved the business from the east end to the west side of Charleston to make room for the booming business. Johnnies always had the freshest meats and everyone in Charleston knew that Johnnies was the best place to get your fresh meat. John Willey was a skilled butcher and salesman and the community respected John Willey he was always so good to his customers. He passed down his wisdom to his family and his son John Craddock took over the business, needing change he moved Johnnies back to the east end in the up and coming Capitol Market. It was a great move for Johnnies Meat Market and business was once again booming. In the late 90’s John’s sister Lisa Surface took over the business and now her daughter, Krisene Stanley runs the business still today inside the Capitol Market.
