Green aisle grocery?

So anyone ever been, is it worth the hike from south street?

  1. We have been in there only a few times, but it always seems like they don't have what we are looking for. Examples are the eggplant salad from Zahav and the local (zip code?) honey. It always seems to be "We'll have it soon.". So I guess if you are looking for something specific, you might want to call ahead.

    1. It's pretty tiny. They have a few fun things, but I'm not sure it's worth a special trip if you aren't already in the neighborhood. That said, it is a fun little place.

      1. I go quite often from about a mile and a half away (Queen Village). I think it depends on why you are interested in them. They pretty much always have local meats, eggs, milk, and yogurt. They also have good coffee and their own line of preserves, pickles and nut butters. It IS very tiny. Check out their facebook page - they update regularly with what they have just gotten in or are well stocked with. You might choose to go based on a particular item. They keep Fee Brothers bitters stocked most of the time as well which is part of why I go : )
