Locally Owned and Organic Hotspots

They’re everywhere—organic and locally operated food stores. What’s your favorite?

Mine is Paul’s Fruit Market in Louisville, Kentucky (my hometown). As a boy, my mom would give me a dollar—“Don’t spend it all at one time,” she said. I ignored that advice (as I did with everything she told me) and bought a huge organic pear. It was monstrous. Needless to say it was the best pear I’ve ever tasted. The juices poured into my mouth and slopped all over my face and down my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shirt, making me sticky for the next four hours. I was in heaven.
