Henry's Farmers Market Ads - Kind of Boring - moved from Los Angeles board

The first ad for Henry's came in the mail today and I have to say it looks pretty disappointing, as well as boring. It looks no different from a regular grocery store. The wine and beers in the ad look particularly boring. I'm still planning on checking it out this weekend but the ad just seems so.. blah. I hope the actual market is more exciting than the ad!

  1. I wouldn't call it exciting. It's a nice alternative to Ralph Von Albertson's Stater for Less.

    Expectation management -- it's like Whole Foods, but smaller, much cheaper and with about half the selection.

      Drove out there from Van Nuys a few weeks ago. While I probably wouldn't go back, they had some great deals on really nice looking fresh fish. Also, the bulk bins of nuts, grains, dried fruit and snacks are pretty impressive. If convenient, I'd say check it out.

    2. I went to the newly opened Burbank Henry's last weekend. It reminded me of a cross between Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I was really impressed with the selection of produce and the prices.

        I forgot to mention that the butchers at Henry's quite happily went and cut a brisket for me while I waited as well.

          The Butcher Block and Bulk foods is where Henry's at...

            The Henry's here in Woodland Hills was, initially, a disappointment given the hype surrounding their opening. But they seem to have found their footing and their meats are swell and they have real butchers who know their cuts of meat. Not as good as Bristol but much, much closer.
