The Grocery

If you haven't checked out the new The Grocery on Lorain Avenue in the Ohio City neighborhood yet, then I hope that you will now.
I love the concept, and it is so cute inside.

The Grocery is a small store, focusing on selling products that are sourced from Ohio farmers, local food start-ups, and earth-friendly household items. The selection will change daily, but they are doing a  great job of posting available products through social media.

We stopped in recently to pick up some produce to pair with some Ohio City Pasta that we already had at home. Little did we know, we could have purchased the pasta there as well.
They currently have two displays of produce (one pictured above), a couple of coolers...
...and some shelves, where we picked up some Montana Girl Hot Mustard. Holy moly, that has a ZING to it. I love it! It was great on a ham and cheese sandwich.
The Grocery also has a large counter, and is selling some grab-and-go items, like some delicious sandwiches and baked goods.
This store reminds me of a farmers' market, or our beloved Fresh Fork CSA, in a brick-and-mortar form. You'll find a lot of the same products, like Randy's Pickles, Gallucci's Italian goods, Clark Pope's Bloody Mary Mix, Ohio City Pasta, bread from The Stone Oven, meat products from the ladies at Saucisson, dairy items from Snowville Creamery, and baked goods from Cleveland Bagel Company. Just to name a few...

They are open:
Monday - Friday 10am to 7pm
Saturday  9am to 6pm
Sunday  12pm to 6pm

They are also doing some live demonstrations with local vendors, like Kombucha Class, Live Juicing, and Mardi Gras Recipes.

Street parking is relatively easy to find. The store is located near Platform Brewery and Jack Flaps, and I think it is a great addition to the rejuvenated extension of Ohio City. I, for one, will be stopping in again, and again.
