Among the top places to be during an asteroid impact, a grocery store ranks second only to the comforting arms of Bruce Willis. Increase your odds of being in the right place at the right time with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of organic groceries and fresh deli fare at New Dodge's Market in Elmer.
Inside a century-old Victorian-style house, New Dodge's Market fills shopping carts with straight-from-the-farm organic groceries and freshly prepped deli fare. Highlighted by hearty sandwiches, salads, and breakfast specials, the market's eclectic menu features meaty subs such as the South Philly ($5.25+), which tickles tasters with savory cuts of capicola, aged provolone, and imported salami trapped between bready borders without a passport. A refreshing gorgonzola salad ($6.99) festoons glistening fork ware in vibrant greens, cranberries, and crispy apple chunks, and breakfast baristas sate morning pangs by forging classic a.m. eats such as a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich ($4.95). Alternatively, market-goers can opt to meander through aisles of freshly baked breads and pies, or corral seasonal specialties and vintage candies. For anniversary celebrations and peace offerings for pawning off the cat, a full-service florist fills vases with prismatic bouquets and blossoming floral arrangements.
The New Dodge's Market
The rigorous standards at New Dodge's Market require that as many local, organic, and pesticide- and chemical-free products stock the historic grocery store’s shelves as possible. Farm-to-table veggies please both local agriculturists and local bellies, and an onsite kitchen stacks baguettes and paninis with Italian-style pork, bacon, brie, and pickle-flavored Jenga blocks. While scents from the market’s coffee bar tickle nostrils, peepers peruse giftables including treat baskets packed with jams and fresh flower bouquets—available for same-day hand delivery. Special events ranging from author readings to performances by local musicians liven things up inside the Victorian-style building, which has stood as a fresh grocer market since the invention of groceries, markets, and the concept of "freshness" in 1886.
