N is for…
…the Niagara Grocery Store
The Niagara Grocery store is our “corner” store. Well, there is another, larger grocer closer to us, as well as another corner-like grocer/confectionery, but the Niagara Grocery is where I prefer to go for produce and meats (locally grown and organic), as well as some more specialty items I can’t find at the larger store.
The Niagara Grocery has been a fixture in our neighbourhood since 1911, and is apparently Victoria’s oldest grocery store. The current owners bought it a few years back and restored it, bringing it back to bustling life. It is run and staffed by really nice people, and they offer a veggie box program which I love (lots of locally grown seasonal veggies every week!).
So, this has been a short post, but it is for one of the places I visit the most!
