It’s sad to see local farms being impacted by the boycott, but I think that if the company gets sold to some corporate entity these farms will lose out even more in the long term. It is great to know that MB’s policy was to purchase from local growers. I didn’t know that before, but it makes me feel even better about the choices I’ve made in the past to shop there. If you live near any of these farms think about visiting their farm stands.
Since I can’t shop at Market Basket, I chose to patronize a local, family owned Winthrop, MA business, The Winthrop Marketplace. I shop here a lot between Market Basket runs. If you live around the general, Revere/East Boston/Winthrop area, this is a good alternative to Shaws or Stop & Shop. It’s a small place so not the most selection, but they do sell some local produce, which is nice.
This tumblr is a tribute to the greatest super market ever, Market Basket. Their prices can't be beat. Every visit is an adventure and a cultural event. They are the place that stretches my middle-class dollar as far as it can go. This blog is my personal creation, a fan site and neither I nor my blog are affiliated with Market Basket stores in any way.
