New Dodge’s Market unites shoppers with a rich assortment of organic and local wares inside a historic 1886 Victorian shop. Dutiful exterior restoration projects have reenlivened the organic menagerie with traditional Victorian hues plucked from natural splendors, including deep ripened-cherry tones on the shutters and a sky-blue awning ceiling that shades the steam-powered doormat on the outdoor patio. Inside, natural avenues guide shoppers toward aisles of fresh-baked breads and pastries, organic cheeses ($14.99+/lb.), and locally produced beef jerky ($6.95). Sweet Mary’s chocolates ($19.95) include belgian-blended specialties and hand-molded truffles, which may be paired with mixed seasonal flowers in Valentine’s Day colors ($50) or 12 long-stem roses ($65) to create memorable gifts or bait traps for chocolate-loving bees. Customers who place flower orders before February 10, the last day to guarantee Valentine’s Day pickup or delivery, will be entered in a drawing to win a five-course Valentine’s Day dinner.
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.
