A Farm to Deli Concept in Ava
Nestled inside the original Mama Jean’s Natural Market, Jean’s Healthway, in Ava is the soon to open VanDeli, a “farm to deli” concept that will serve local and organic products. The team at VanDeli hopes to open in mid-March with lunchtime hours Tuesday–Friday and the occasional dinner club on Friday evenings. The menu will be that of a typical deli—sandwiches, powerbowls, soups, salads and sweet treats—made fresh, in house. They’ll also offer a selection of superfood lattes, medicinal mocktails and possibly even house-made kombucha. When the deli isn’t open, items will be available for grab-n-go at Jean’s Healthway. Finally, VanDeli will also be a preservatory pickling and fermenting vegetables and more to make Kimchis, sauerkrauts, hot sauces and more.
