Greens Organic Market Broadway @ Maple Now Open!

Sam Salmon Mar 8, 2010 03:18 PM

A newcomer in the organic food biz has opened on W. Broadway @ Maple.

Sadly there was a glitch with the electrical power when I was there this afternoon and they couldn't let any customers inside so I didn't have a chance have a look around/buy anything.

Will report back later in the week.

    I get my groceries next door at IGA(Which I hate), I'll check it out this week. I've driven by a few times and it looked like a pricey urban fare-esque store. I hope this is not the case because I am really hoping for some good and reasonable food.

      I popped in on opening day (March 5) for a quick look around. Prices appear comparable to Safeway on some items eg Que Pasa chips and to Capers on others eg "organic" laundry detergent. They have a smallish prepared food area that again looked similar to Capers. The produce department smelled really good with ripe tasty fruit notes. I was hoping they would have the enviro-friendly dishwasher no-spot agent that I currently schlep to Famous Food for but no dice. I'll probably stop in here instead of other local alternagrocers simply because it is on my way to work.
