Martin’s Foods is a chain of supermarkets operating in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and western Pennsylvania. Like Giant stores, they are operated by Giant-Carlisle and are owned by Ahold Delhaize. The stores are generally identical to Giant-Carlisle stores. In 1998, when Ahold purchased Giant-Landover, some Martin’s stores were closed and sold to other chains to comply with Federal Trade Commission regulations. These locations included stores in Frederick, Carroll, Harford and Cecil counties in Maryland, where the Giant of Landover name was seen as more dominant. However, two stores in this area, in Eldersburg and in Rising Sun, were not sold and continue to operate as Martin’s to this day.

The chain, along with Giant-Carlisle, implemented the Bonuscard program in 2000. Around that same time, the chain began selling gasoline in front of its stores.

Since August 2020, the chain’s new slogan is “For Today’s Table”.[31] “Quality. Selection. Savings. Everyday” and “We’re with You” were previously used slogans. The majority of Martin’s stores are open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Martin’s is strong in its trade area, usually being first in market share.

The Martin’s name originates from a small chain based in Hagerstown, Maryland. Giant-Carlisle purchased Martin’s while expanding in 1968. The name, once known only in Hagerstown, was expanded into nearby Waynesboro, Pennsylvania; Martinsburg, West Virginia; Frederick, Maryland; and Winchester, Virginia. The chain has since expanded further west into Maryland’s Allegany County, into West Virginia’s Jefferson and Mineral counties, into Virginia’s Culpeper and Warren counties, and as far south as Petersburg, Virginia. The Martin’s name was extended into west central Pennsylvania upon the purchase of corporate-owned Jubilee Foods stores; these stores use the Martin’s banner instead of Giant to avoid confusion with Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle, which has stores in many of those same markets. Martin’s now operates stores in Altoona, Duncansville, Connellsville, Indiana, and DuBois. Despite these locations being located relatively close to Pittsburgh, the Connellsville location is the only store located within the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, and Martin’s currently has no plans to further expand there, mainly due to Giant Eagle’s tight grip on the market there.
