Echoing some of the other reviews - itís a dingy little grocery store with a deli (fryer) up front. Never tried the food, wouldnít recommend it, either. The beer selection, however, is great. Henry does a good job getting seasonals, limited releases, and one-offs. He takes requests, and if he recognizes you, wonít hesitate to drag you over to the cooler to point out new arrivals. Long cooler line of foreign and micros with a couple aisles for the overstock and single 12 ozs. Best selection in the area and sure beats the 2 hour round trip up to Johnís in Portland.

Appearances can be deceiving! Looks just like another mom & pop corner mart, but Capital Market holds the largest and widest beer selection in the Salem/Keizer area. The selection is always consistently large and sometimes surprising with a few rare finds. A wall of refridgerators categorize beer by country or state, while the two aisles aren’t very organized. Overall, the best place to buy bottled beer in Salem.
