Grove Corner Market
Now open in West Asheville!
The Grove Corner has opened on the site of the failed Co-Op in the Bledsoe Building on Haywood Road. For my first visit, I had the breakfast burrito with sausage (they had veggie ones, for those so inclined) and a sample of awesome fudge.
Not everything is up and running, as the HVAC man was there tweaking air flow, and the required licenses to sell beer and wine are close to being finalized, but it is clearly a grocery store. Entering through the produce section and winding around to the dining space, even though there is not as much square footage as the old store, the selections are broad.
Dave rang me up and we chatted a while. Foot traffic has been really good for them so far, so keep it up West Asheville!
Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 10p.m.
