Neighborhood grocery stores are becoming popular again as eaters look to fill their pantries with all things local. Their
small size means they can form relationships with local purveyors and order a quantity that doesn’t overwhelm them. It’s like
your farmers’ market but in store format. No waiting till Saturday to shop.
