Help us find a new home!

Fresh & Local

Our time at Magazine and Girod has been spectacular, but we’re packing up in a few months and we’d like your input for finding our new home. Want to be able to walk to market? Excited to see us near your favorite park? Know the perfect location? Go on our website and fill out a quick questionnaire to help us in our search. But until then, be sure to stop by market to witness this city’s finest farmers market in its original state. This week we’ve got all types of greens; tomatoes of every shape, size, and color; aromatic ginger and turmeric; bundles of eye-catching root veggies; the state’s sweetest citrus; baked goods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and much, much more.
