Boxcar Grocer: A Natural Food Depot


If you remember my post last fall about Stockbox, the mini-market in a box–as in shipping container–designed to offer essential grocery items and fresh produce for urban food deserts, you might be interested in Boxcar Grocer. And if you live in Atlanta, you might really  be interested in this independently, family owned business with a new vision of the corner store: a place that recognizes the health of a nation begins with the health of its individual communities.

This corner store alternative, where local and organic food options get prime shelf space instead of cigarettes, lotto tickets, liquor, and processed foods, is an attempt to make local, fresh food available where large grocery stores don’t exist to fulfill the needs of diverse urban communities in Atlanta.

If you have the opportunity to check it out, let me know what you think!
