Best Shot for Northside to Get a Grocery Store Again: Apple Street Market

We’ve been waiting patiently for cooperative grocery Apple Street Market to get off the ground, and it seems like the final piece may have fallen into place late in 2017. That’s because the city gave the go-ahead to fund the purchase of the former Save-A-Lot building in the neighborhood where the market wants to locate. The building will be owned by Northside community development corporation NEST, which says it will be easy to find other uses for the property should a grocery store not pan out. But let’s hope it does. Apple Street Market, 4145 Apple St., Northside, applestreetmarket.coop.
