Coming Soon!

  Welcome to Massachusetts! I hope you had a great spring break, and check out the  Spring Memorabilia Extravaganza  if you haven't yet! It's time to get serious about New England, and that means starting Massachusetts. Given that I lived here for five years (most of that time in Worcester, but some time in Boston), my coverage is pretty extensive in and around those cities -- but limited in some areas, like here in western Massachusetts, because I didn't have a car and my trusty bike would only get me so far. For the next two weeks or so, we'll be in western Mass a little and then around Springfield for a longer time. We're going to make stops in Lee, which is in the Berkshires, and then near Springfield in South Hadley, Holyoke, Chicopee, and then into Springfield itself, with one final stop in Ludlow just east of the city for good measure. This is Big Y country, with the regional chain's headquarters in Springfield, but there are also other chains out here an

It's Time for our Spring Break!

Happy spring! You know what that means, we'll be on our spring break until May 20th. In the meantime, check out some memorabilia with new posts every day on Grocery Archaeology ! After that, it's on to Massachusetts with regular posting this summer!
