Good Foods  is my favorite place for groceries – literally “good food!”- in all of Lexington.  It is owned  by the public and has a great selection of locally grown produce, a bulk food section unlike any other store in Lexington and a great selection of gluten free items.  Good Foods also has a great restaurant, service is buffet style,  with a selection of dishes to delight any healthy eaters palate.

Habitat for Humanity RESTORE–  This is located right next to Good Foods on Southland Avenue.  It is  a terrific place to get recycled building materials and furniture.  I recently bought two large book cases and a recliner at The Restore.
