Snap Top Market -- South End
Just saw a note about this in the Globe -- apparently it's a new produce store in the South End, from the same family that runs Idylwilde in Acton.
Just checked it out today and spoke with the owner/one man operation, Steve. I'm sure I will be visiting Snap Top constantly. They have tons of fresh produce, and other than the various farmer's markets, it's something that has been severely lacking in this area (read: Shaw's has terrible produce). They have cheese, nuts, pasta, sauces/dressings, and will be expanding their prepared foods and meats soon enough. He gave me a delicious apple to try in the store, and then a box of fruit to bring back to the office. Everything is fantastic - especially the pears, which are perfectly ripe and amazing. I definitely suggest you swing by and check the place out, I'll bet he sticks around for a while.
