This may seem a little out of the ordinary, but it deserves recognition. Mrs. Green’s might seem like the long lost, smaller twin sister of Whole Foods, but none the less, it’s the newest installment in New York’s West Village. The reason for the recognition is that there is now a place for people to shop proper food and groceries in the West Village, without having to walk at least 30 mins, and instead opting for take out or something from the deli. Yes, D’Agostino’s has a couple of stores, but come on – have any one every felt happier by going in to one? Thought so.
Mrs. Green’s is a chain of stores, but it’s newest is placed in the West Village. It is a grocery store in 2 levels, with served baker, juicebar, salad bar, hot food bar along with a served meat and fish department. They provide local produce, all presented nice and properly, so you actually want to pick up some vegetables and emerge on the quest of a DIY salad. They also mark where on the shelves you find the gluten-free options, which could save the odd celeriac allergic around 10 mins pr. trip.
It has a nice quaint feeling to it. The rows are on the narrower side, but it actually doesn’t matter. Just makes it feel like a plain old grocery store – where you can afford to shop on a regular basis. Staff seems happy and to actually like one another, and the butcher smiles at you when you order.
Good on you, Mrs. Green’s.
