RAYR Market (pronounced rare) is located on the south side of the Mount Ayr Square, and opened September 2021.
RAYR started as an idea to bring new opportunities to Ringgold County and blossomed into a locally owned business and “flavor destination.” The market provides a gateway to quality options that reflect the heart of small businesses while providing the convenience today’s world demands with standards residents and visitors deserve.
RAYR is proud to feature quality, locally raised beef and pork, Iowa-based products, and artisan pizza, as well as some of your favorite snacks and beverages.
Inventory changes regularly, so expect to see items you may not expect in a small-town market. RAYR believes it takes a village to keep a village and takes pride in feeding families and rural Iowa’s future.
