The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.
Mish Farms is unlike any other local business. We have been raising beef cattle for over 40 years and we retail our product at our meat market which is on our farm. Our beef is raised ALL NATURAL, without the use of antibiotics, steriods or hormones. We are a family owned and operated business.
The Getaway Cafe has its own way of defining the notion of a family-friendly restaurant: Owned by husband and wife Lou and Nancy Manolios, the restaurant has seen all five of their daughters work between its walls, and Lou's nephew, Christopher, is the general manager. Running a restaurant was a lifelong dream of Lou's. He grew up in a close family and was washing dishes at his grandfather's restaurant at the age of 12, an age when many boys are only washing their footballs. Now, at Getaway Café, he and his wife have created a large, eclectic menu with everything from baby-back ribs to fresh seafood and weekend breakfasts. They also host a variety of events such as martini nights with live entertainment and wine dinners.
Giant Eagle's spread of more than mild to pungent cheeses amasses more than 400 varieties of aromatic curds from around the world. Parmigiano reggiano ($18.99/lb.) complements rustic tomato sauce and earthy olive oil with firm bites that break into chunks for salty hors d'oeuvres. Cotswold cheese combines mellow double Gloucester with onion and chives ($12.99/lb.), a savory mix that melts into a smooth, hearty sauce when heated on stovetops or placed in a tanning booth. Discerning palates gravitate toward Market District red-wax gouda ($8.99/lb.), a silky cheese whose mild taste artfully underscores the delicate flavors of white wines and fruity reds. A cheese glossary helps shoppers navigate the aisles, paring hard or soft wedges with a fondue recipe or ripened sweater. Additionally, Giant Eagle’s low-fat cheeses deliver fortifying doses of calcium while cutting down on calorie content.
Right By Nature specializes in supplying affordable natural and organic foods in a neighborhood-market environment, and provides the small sector of the population that still requires food with a diverse, affordable selection of organic and everyday products. An array of organic options descends upon the shelves, including Amy's Organic canned soups ($2.89–$3.39), La Prima coffee blends ($11.99), and Bob's Red Mill carb products ($2.99–$10.39). The in-house bakery churns out homemade dentist depressants such as the banana-chocolate-chip bread ($3.25) and a homemade oatmeal-walnut cookie sandwich with buttercream (three for $5.99). The clean, well-kept store also stocks a variety of prepared foods for the cooking-impaired, such as hand-tossed pizzas, fresh sushi, and other fully cooked entrees and sides.
