We've all been waiting for Front Street Grocers to reopen since their "pause for updates" in late February. During Mountaineer Days, Front Street Grocers opened their doors once more to offer popsicles, pretzels, and sesame noodles made fresh from the grocer's kitchen.
Popsicle flavors included coconut cacao, watermelon mint, and cranberry pomegranate lime, to name a few of the many flavors. The sesame noodle bowl proved a fresh and tasty alternative to all the fried deliciousness available on the rail grade.
Front Street Grocers announced on Facebook that the "opening date is in sight." The store is still committed to bringing Thomas the same top quality of food as before but with a new owner this time around. Ash Keane, Front Street Grocer's new owner, is the former manager of The Mountain People's Cooperative, a natural foods market in Morgantown.
I'm sure many of us in Thomas are growing hungrier in anticipation. In the meantime, if you're interested in working for Front Street Grocers or using its community kitchen space, email Ash at firstname.lastname@example.org.
