Serio's Market draws customers with a broad selection of gourmet goodies and household products. Peruse the store's well-stocked shelves to ogle first-rate foodstuffs from cookies and crackers to strip steaks and sausages, all containing the power to imbue every mealtime chew convention with the tabletop fireworks of a disco candelabra. Prepared sandwiches include a store-cooked meatloaf sandwich served on one of nine different breads and dressed with veggies, condiments, and cheeses ($4.29), and specialty sandwiches such as The Bull's Eye, which uses a combination of roast beef, barbecue sauce, and sharp cheddar to hit hunger with a precision blow ($4.99). Fresh-made salads, oven-roasted chicken, and piping-hot pleasures such as shepherd's pie ($4.49 lb.) are also available to keep busy family-feeders from resorting to time-efficient but unpopular dishes such as rice 'n' ketchup or beans a la yogurt.

A student of Chinese medicine for more than 25 years, Hayley Mermelstein supplements her acupuncture and shiatsu massage with energy healing from the Tong Ren tradition of her mentor Tom Tam. Her studies began in 1987 under the guidance of Janet Murphy at the University of Massachusetts, where she designed her own major in shiatsu, and she opened a practice immediately upon graduation. Today, Mermelstein also leads meditation classes following the principles of her teacher Ellen Tadd. In 2003, Hayley completed her formal acupuncture training, graduating from the New England School of Acupuncture and White Pine Healing Arts and earning a mortarboard that doubles as an emergency massage bed.

Health coach and nutrition expert Theresa Grisanti's path to a healthy relationship with food hasn't been easy. Once while in college, and again after the birth of her children, Theresa found herself using food as an emotional crutch and putting her own health at risk. Both times, however, she was able to pull herself out, and in both cases, she sites her ability to establish a mind-body connection as the reason. Through her work, she aims to help others turn around their unhealthy eating habits, and she believes that the only way to fix bad habits is to understand where they stem from. With a focus on emotional healing and extensive nutrition education, Theresa aims to help guests find the correct combinations of foods and equips them with the knowledge necessary to make healthy choices.
