Without grocery stores, urbanites would have to grow their own pumpkins in window boxes and spend hours negotiating with the family parakeet until it agreed to be milked. Let rural bounty come to you with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet groceries and foodstuffs at Motts Old Mill Bulk Foods in Louisville.
Nominated for Best Gourmet Grocery on Fox 8's Hot List in 2008 and 2011, Motts Old Mill Bulk Foods draws upon its 137-year history to satiate customers' cravings with a large selection of organic and natural products. Fresh peanut butter ($2.79/lb.) leads a lineup of house-ground nut butters, and myriad locally produced goods, such as Holmes County swiss cheese ($4.99/lb.), captivate taste buds with tales of Ohio's Swiss and Amish heritage. Rouse winter bellies with a serving of oatmeal ($0.64/lb.), or tempt sweet teeth with melting chocolates ($2.89–$3.29/lb.), cookies, and hardtack candies, which can be infused with more than 35 flavors of LorAnn candy oils ($1.09 each) before being placed in a mold or chiseled into a saccharine likeness of the David statue.
