Yeah. I've lived in the neighborhood for well over decade and never thought of it as a food desert—what with Joe's Meat Market, Rudy, Friendship Market, PPW, Price Rite, etc.

I'll pop by Urban Greens once or twice a month for specialty stuff but only did my regular grocery shopping there when Friendship Market and Rudy's were closed for a few months at the start of the pandemic.

They've always been a bit pricy and felt like more a niche place for the Whole Foods crowd than a neighborhood grocery store. I'm frankly surprised they've lasted this long having seen both Fertile Underground and Hope & Thyme come and go.

What's that Marge Simpson line? "We can't afford to shop at any store that has a philosophy."
