Hart's Local Grocers

Postby Kelly » Thu Oct 30, 2014 8:23 am

Have you been? What are your thoughts?

Went and wasn't very impressed. But then, I'm probably not in their target market. Certainly not worth a special trip by car.

They seem to have more space than they can fill. Perhaps that will change if/when they mature. Produce was very so-so. For all the hoopla about local growers, there wasn't much. (Yes, there is still plenty to be had from local farmers! Are they trying?) I did get some amazing and reasonably priced locally grown shiitake mushrooms. That was my big score.

There is a bakery and a deli which at a glance seemed ok. How do you keep repeating how you feature local stuff (yes, there is some - but it doesn't dominate) and offer me pumpkin seeds grown in China?! Pisses me off.

Parking is more than ample - and I got a 10 cent credit for bringing my own bag. Woo.

Maybe it's handy for Eastman students without a car. . .

I am strong, because I've been weak.
I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
I am wise, because I've been foolish.

What makes it special is that the inner city is anemic when it comes to grocers. So it's good to have one open up.
Other than that, I wouldn't consider it anything out of the ordinary, even by hipster standards.
