If you live in the vicinity of 16th Street and Bethany Home, I already envy you for living so close to Richardson's. And now I hear there's something new on the very same corner: Luci's Healthy Marketplace.
The retro-modern market sells ready-to-eat meals to go, organic groceries, household necessities, beer and wine, and more. There's free wi-fi and a coffee bar with locally roasted organic coffee and fresh pastries, a Viking test kitchen where they'll be doing cooking demos, and garage doors that open up the seating area.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
