I didn't find it so in Bethesda. I shopped there because they had things I
couldn't find elsewhere or perhaps I would have had to crisscross Washington
to get them.
They sold a wide variety of cheeses, tiny vegetables, organic chicken back
when no other supermarket sold them. I reckoned they got their cachet from
my shopping htere.
