If you're tired of pushing a shopping cart through throngs of people, only to find grocery store shelves empty of the basic items you need, local bakeries, farms and cafes are stepping up to offer an alternative solution to the supermarket.
Bet on Bread
At Aviary Café's Farmers Park location, the bakery is selling bread in addition to baked goods, such as vegan brownies, via online or call-in ordering.
A C-Street Pop-Up
Commercial Street's Cafe Basilico is taking advantage of its supply chain to offer groceries, like eggs, roma tomatoes, fresh produce, potatoes, toilet paper, dried pastas and even homemade sauces and butters. Groceries are available for traditional shopping (all foods are kept behind the counter to avoid contamination) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or you can order groceries ahead for pickup.
Bringing the Basics
European Cafe is still offering its delectable desserts for walk-in, carry-out, curbside and delivery orders, but now you can also add basic groceries, like bread, flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk and even European Cafe Baking Kits to your order. Call for details.
