The Picc-A-Dilly is owned by Peggy and Fred Ward, and Suzanne and Bruce Jackson. The Wards and Jacksons have a friendship lasting more than 30 years. Peggy and Suzanne both had careers in banking prior to purchasing the market, and Fred and Bruce jointly own and operate Duckworth Construction Company. A family affair, everyone in the Ward and Jackson families has helped out at the market at one time or another. Many long time vendors’ children have now grown up and become vendors themselves.
