We all recognize that Richmond is becoming a Foodie Favorite and gaining recognition throughout the east.  But I’ve also become aware of Richmond increased  notariety as  the destination for grocery chains.  To name a few – Food Lion, Krogers, Martins, Aldis, Lidl and Publix.  Odd but true …..

Yelp even lists the best 30 grocery stores in Richmond! (https://www.yellowpages.com/richmond-va/grocery-stores)

With the proliferation of stores we all have our favorites and in most cases, it is our neighborhood market.  I for one was devastated when I LOST Ukrops at John Rolfe Parkway.  I took it personally – it was my store!!  As it transitioned to Martins, I never felt at home and always viewed it as an inferior replacement.  For good or bad, Martins closed many many months ago and I have daily watched the activity behind the fence as a mother transition is on the horizon.   It has taken forever!!!!  But last week the lime green sign was shining brightly at dusk – PUBLIX !!!    Only a few more days until I have my neighborhood store!
