I was just in the fruit and vegetable market, that I have gone to over the past 20 years, and the owner told me they will be closing in 4 months because of the owner taking their rent so high. Now I readily admit over the years that I have a few times left scratching my head at some of the prices they charged(or I payed). however they have always been friendly and helpful and I believe offered quality produce.
Its sad to think of another empty store on that street especially one that was able to offer some ethnic hard to find ingredients and for the most part delicious fruits and vegetables. The choice was always mine to pay te price or not. I will miss having them!
