1998 Best Produce, Vegetables

A. Russo and Sons

If you’re fed up with the less-than-appealing look and less-than-inspiring selection of veggies at your local chain grocery, head over to A. Russo and Sons. It may be a bit of a hike, but you’ll realize it’s well worth your while as soon as you step into this adorable shop overrun with greens and boasting the best selection and best-tasting produce around. Never again will you be satisfied with that limp zuke from the chain groceries.
