Employees, Community Remain Essential To LaBonne’s Markets

From butchers to business owners, LaBonne’s Markets in Connecticut is six generations strong. A timeline on its website marks the milestones: George LaBonne had a small market and delivered on his horse and buggy in 1900; his son, George Jr., also a butcher, worked with his father until the 1920s when he, his wife and their nine ­children moved to Moosup, in eastern Connecticut. George began working for The Fulton Markets in Watertown.
