Giving wildlife its space

Old neighborhood stores are hiding in plain sight

Going to the market to buy food is something people have been doing for hundreds of years. Shoppers have certainly been doing this for much of Marietta’s history. Long before there were Walmarts, Giant Eagles and large Krogers there were simple neighborhood stores that slowly morphed into the giant supermarkets we see today. They thrived at a time when refrigeration and transportation were more difficult than they are today. You didn’t buy more than you could carry home and you only bought what you could eat within a few days. If you look closely, you can still see some of these markets that stand today, many repurposed for other uses. Stay in the area long enough and you start playing the game of “what-used-to-be” when talking about different locations.

Locally, this meant it was time to shine for Community Food Initiatives’ Community Gardens.
