Looking forward to the opening of this "independently-owned grocer known for carrying locally grown, organic foods" store. The only thing that might be better is a Trader Joe's :) I'll be there Every Friday after my Art Critique meeting, just a few doors down at Coffee Ali's. I hope the community shows support for this Organic Foods Store, and believe they will.
Filling this Large empty spot will give a much needed look to the Vintage Hill Shopping Center. Leaving it empty is such an Eye Sore ~

I am just thrilled about this organic market. I will go to the new place because it is so close to home but I want to acknowledge what a fantastic job Raley's and Gene's have done in offering as much organic as they do. I know it isn't easy. I hope we can all support the new market so they will be able to stay. I go to the gym up there and they are already doing the construction!

I'm pleased that New Leaf is moving in but how on earth did this get approved so quickly (and quietly). It is amazing that Walmart works for months fighting to get approval and this store just magically gets approved.

This didn't magically get approved. It was actually announced last year in the Weekly. Just took this long to get it started. New Leaf will be a much welcomed new neighbor for the Vineyard area. Great location, good parking--it's a win-win. Glad to see its construction actually underway.

This is very welcome news indeed.Never heard of it for so many months and thought the whole deal is dead. We always try to buy organic.Will save time and gas in not having to go to Whole Food plus the tax dollars will stay local. Hope the new owners read this.
