Wilmington transformation...yuppy ingredients at Market Basket

Wilmington seems to be on the cusp of a transformation into a suburban yuppie outpost, with a few new restaurants and the renovated shopping center. The Market Basket there doesn't look all that different from its predecessor but last night I noticed that they had.....drumroll......FRISEE! It was in the small organic produce aisle, $2.49 a head. I have seen it sporadically in Farmland (Wakefield) and Roche Brothers, but once looked in vain for it at Whole Foods, so I was gobsmacked to see it in MB. I have yet to check out the Reading MB; perhaps it, and Chelsea, are more likely to carry it but I sure didn't expect to see it, ever, in Wilmington.
