Macy's Market is a spinoff of the popular Paradox Seris The Junkyard Kids. The serie follows the employees of Gretdale's market as they try to run a normal business in a not so normal town. The series was greenlit by Brooke Jordan in late 2013 after the communities strong enjoyment of the crew in the market, and Dixon's desire to expand the lore of the town through another show.
The show ran for four seasons and was cancelled in 2020, ending with a four part finale that took place at the same time as the events of the third season. The show sparked controversy for being able to release four seasons int he same amount of time that the main show released three seasons. Ana Dixon said that because of the shows fewer episode count, less of a story, and cheaper animation, the show could be churned out faster. However, people still remained angry. The show was cancelled because Season 4 barely made a profit, and Jordan was worried a fifth wouldn't break even. This was the same reason Life is Boring was cancelled as well.
Macy Francis (Voiced by Eleanor Greene): Macy is the owner and manager of Macy's Market. She is an elderly woman, old enough to remember when the worlds biggest problem was global cooling.

She is fired in the Season 2 finale, but returns to work in Season 3 because Macy couldn't find anyone to fill the position. Taylor attends school with Henry and Melissa.

He ran away from the North Pole after almost getting the village revealed to F-PID.

Anthony (Voiced by Max Anderson): Athony is the janitor of the market. He and Steve are usually the first two sent to handle a paranormal crisis.
Rachel (Voiced by Blake Byrne): Rachel is a new cashier that started working at the market in Season 2, following the events of Help Wanted. Rachel keeps to herself, but Taylor pulls her out of her shell quickly. She is currently attending a community college which, while unnamed, fans believed to be the same one from Community College. This was deconfirmed by the show-runner of Community College because he didn't want to have to try to explain how paranormal activities can exist and yet never show them on the show.
Madison (Voiced by Lily Raymond): Madison is a general helper of the store. She is usually helping either Steve at the Deli or Bryce with unloading the delivery truck. She comes from Texas and moved to Gretdale to help her uncle tend the farm. She got a job at the market so they could buy a tractor.

Stan (Voiced by Aiden Conhart): Stan is the owner of Stan's Pizza and has become rather wealthy because of it. The show has a running gag of showing him with a different woman everytime he appears. However, he rarely appears so the gag doesn't have a full effect on the audience.
Farmer Bill (Voiced by Adam Bradley): Farmer Bill owns a farm in Gretdale and is Madison's uncle. He is a major agricultural supplier of the market and if his crops have trouble, the market as a whole runs low on supplies.
Claire (Voiced by Danielle Burke): Claire is Madison's roommate in College.
