Taking the long trip from Church Fruit Farm at 1824 Church Ave to Great Vegetable Farm at 1823 Church Ave. The 1800 block of Church Ave seems to be the hotspot for grocery stores, with these two, a deli-grocery just to the right of Great Vegetable Farm (see picture above), the Mundo Supermarket two doors to the left (you can see the "ket" of the sign above), and Meat Palace Supreme immediately to the left of that.
The owners of the Great Vegetable Farm have claimed the storefront of the closed Chinese restaurant next door to display more produce. Compared to Church Fruit's 3300 square feet, this store is only 1100 square feet.
As you can see, the store is very narrow and long. Grocery items here are displayed on top of the produce, with the registers at the far back of the store. That's about all I have for today, come back tomorrow for Mundo Supermarket next door!
