The Winter Hill neighborhood in Somerville now has its own little grocery store called Neighborhood Produce! This is the perfect place to stop if you’re looking for local produce, milk in refillable glass bottles and bulk basics. They have big sales every Monday on different items each week.
Fruits and veggies are nicely arranged in baskets along one wall of the store. There are both seasonal and out of season selections.
There’s a coffee station with fruit and pastries to go.
Their bulk section may look small, but it has a lot to offer!
You can make your purchase in a glass spice jar that they offer or bring your own container (just make sure you tare/weigh it before you fill it!). There are little scoops to make spice transfer easier.
Their spice shelf has so many options to choose from, including some hard to find spices like smoked paprika, whole nutmeg, sea salt, bay leaves and “no chicken broth powder”.
Below the spice shelves are some different teas including a chai tea blend, peppermint leaf, yerba mate and cinnamon orange tea.
The bulk foods section has lots of options including dried beans, granola, pasta, grains and seeds.
There’s even a few different types of bulk pasta!
There are nuts and a few different kinds of rice.
They even have bulk brown sugar! I haven’t seen this anywhere else in the Boston area.
There are a few types of granola and some dried fruits.
They sell light and dark roasted coffee beans and have a grinder nearby.
In the refrigerator section they have local eggs and even eggnog in refillable glass bottles! Perfect for the upcoming holidays.
They have Cabot butter and local milk in refillable glass bottles.
Many of the refrigerated vegetables are available package-free, like carrots, peppers, cabbage and broccoli, to name a few.
This is a great place to shop if you’re looking to make a healthy and local meal. Neighborhood Produce offers paper-free text receipts, too. Go check it out!
