Located on the waterfront of historic downtown New Bern, N.C., Galley Stores is convenient whether you’re traveling by land or by river.

We’re a gourmet and provisioning market. In addition to offering a range of basic grocery and home items, Galley Stores features specialty and gourmet choices you won’t find anywhere else in the area. Many of our food items are grown or made right here in North Carolina.

We also have a one-stop-shop for the best of what North Carolina has to offer in our MadeinNCStore. Displayed in our Galley Stores market and also available for shopping online, you can find the best of what our state’s artisans and unique food producers have to offer.

We’re known for our large, eclectic selection of specialty wines, craft beers and gourmet foods. Our gourmet cheese offerings are the largest in the region and growing weekly to feature delicious cheeses from around the world.

In addition, we carry Ladyfingers Catering’s Gourmet to Go meals! These are delicious casseroles, entrees, soups and salads prepared daily, ready to cook at your convenience.

Something for Everyone

Our team provides wine recommendations and supplies our wines for special and catered events across the region including Tryon Palace, Whitford Plantation and the nearby Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant. Our tastefully appointed upstairs reception area at Galley Stores is becoming a popular location for catered and special events. We can even provide professional bartending services. Call us to see if it might work for your next event.

Fuel your car at our BP station or pull your boat up to our Marina dock fueling station. We also have tackle and bait for those eager to enjoy the great outdoors.
