  1. On first glance, how does the new Mississippi Market compare to the new Seward Co-op?

    Visited the new market yesterday — quite nice. I’m glad they decided to open the store in that area.

    It’s a beautiful store and gives the neighborhood a definite boom. I’m a little closer to the Selby store, but will most likely visit both on a regular basis.
