Children wail, fellow shoppers gnash their teeth, and the damned cart never goes in the direction you steer it.
We’re pretty sure Dante glossed over grocery shopping in his nine circles of hell.
But eyes have not seen nor ears heard what Annie Baum-Stein has prepared for the hungry in West Philly. Her new Milk & Honey Market has everything you’re looking for — and it’s all local.
Stock up on bread and croissants from Four Worlds and produce from nearby farms. Carbo-load with fresh and frozen pasta from New Jersey’s Severino. Give in to your sweet tooth with cookies from Wooden Spoon and the ultimate cupcake made especially for M&H by friend Katie Levins. Milk, coffee, juice, ice cream, and fish from area purveyors make it a total one-stop shop.
In other words, divine.
Milk & Honey Market, 4435 Baltimore Avenue (215-387-6455 or milkandhoneymarket.com).
