Kevin Smith said the menu and market reflects the couple’s interest in healthy and organic foods.
"They bring back good memories,” Kevin Smith said. "I had a gentleman who came in last week and said the fried green tomatoes were just like those his grandmother used to make. And that’s what we want — something that will make people feel like they’re at home.”
The market, meanwhile, is a work in progress. The shelves already are stocked with milk, eggs, Dr. Brown’s soda, ready-to-go meals from the kitchen, dressings, spices and mixes.
"We’re waiting for more items to come in from across the country and around the world,” Kevin Smith said. "And we’ve reserved some space to grow and figure out what residents want.”
The couple say they’re happy to be working and living in Deep Deuce, a neighborhood that has recently seen an influx of new housing along with new businesses such as Sage and The Wedge pizzeria joining the Deep Deuce Grill.
"I like the people in the neighborhood,” Kevin Smith said. "And at the end of the night it’s a quick ride home.”
