Filling your basket with free range eggs and organic milk at a market where every body knows your name seems like the way it should be.
As you soon as you walk through the doors of the newly opened Bridgeland Market, friendly faces greet you from behind the ice cream counter or the sandwich bar. The heritage building’s tin ceilings and brick walls surround rows of pastas, cereals and preserves. Veggies, meats and dairy blissfully come from local suppliers, but no one will judge you if you buy a box of Kraft Dinner a couple of shelves over.
The best part: there is not a self checkout or express lane in sight. —Jaelyn Molyneux
