Just read an interesting article in the NY Times sent to me by Clara. Curious what others might think about it. Obviously I think Local Harvest is pretty great and we're radically smaller than even the supposedly tiny 10,000 square foot stores they describe. One of the things I love about the size of LHG is that it is not overwhelming to shop. Prior to opening the store I really didn't enjoy grocery shopping. I always felt like there were too many choices and that it was so sterile. And some Farmer's Markets, while certainly full of character, can feel overwhelming when they are super big and have tons of vendors. One of the reasons I like Tower Grove Farmer's Market and the Maplewood Market is that they are manageable.
Anyway, click this link and let me know what you think.
