In the spirit of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" we have built the store using reclaimed wood from old grocery pallets, we've outfitted our coolers with energy-conserving covers and we will have a compost bin on-site to compost our green waste, which will then be used by local farmers. Plus, we provide recycling bins in our store for everything from wine corks to cell phones!
We are excited to be a part of this community and hope you will come see us soon. Remember, when it comes to your food, the more you know, the better!
