Time To Ramp Up The Flavor!

It's ramp season! Ramps are a foraged wild leek that comes from the northeast in the United States and parts of eastern Canada. The flavor is garlicky by the bulb with milder flavor in the leaves. They have a very short season, and once you get them in the house, you only have a few days to use them before their leaves start to wilt. We've got a great recipe for a compound butter on our blog along with tips on how to clean and store them.


Who All Gon' Be There?

Who are the people in your grocery store?

With construction on the Forty Acres Fresh Market store is well underway many people are asking how the store will be staffed. Typically hiring for a new store starts about 12 weeks prior to opening.

Although we do not have an exact opening date quite yet, we have already planned out the store's staffing needs. There will be 15 full-time positions and 7 part-time. Full-time jobs include a meat department manager/butcher, produce department manager, deli/kitchen manager, and cooks. There will also be part-time roles at the front end for cashiers.

Our goal is for the store team to reflect the neighborhood in which it operates. Full job descriptions and postings will be released in the coming months. Subscribe to the Forty Acres Fresh Market newsletter and follow us on social media for updates and announcements.
