Our regular feature highlighting local markets and services that cater to our sized households.
A solid round up of our area’s great independent and specialty markets this week. We visited
Sofo’s, Monnettes (Glendale), Fresh Market, and Sautter’s. Here is what we found….

Monnette’s…all of them. And the more traffic we can drive to the one on Glendale the better. They have struggled to rise above the road maintenance that has trapped them. This week in particular brought us some good stir fry possibilities plus we highlight two of our favorite salads.
