The recently opened Fleet Street Market offers shoppers a place to pick up fresh produce and organic ingredients in Fells Point.
Featured items include fresh bread delivered daily, frozen pasta from Little Italy, specialty products like Old Bay Peanut Spread from local business Nuts to You!, sweet and spicy sausages from Ostrowski's, and various locally grown fruits and vegetables.
The corner grocery store is owned and run by Claudette Torbey, a former Chicago lawyer. She noticed a need for a neighborhood store "that you could walk to," she said.
Claudette, who came to Baltimore when her husband got a job here, also hopes the store will become a gathering place for the community. "There were people in here ... just hanging out and talking," she said of recent customers.
She is also beginning to stock requested items like coffee and prepared sandwiches and salads.
