We heard a lot of good things about the nearby Market Basket location while touring the Boston Market Terminal and New England Produce Center — so we stopped by ourselves to check out why it got such high praise.
What we experienced was a store that wasn't high-end but had top-notch selection. The diversity of produce was almost mind-boggling, with large Latin, Caribbean and Asian sections. And the prices were still reasonable.
We also noticed the merchandising skill of combining like products — for instance the intuitive placements of items, like soy sauce above the bok choy, that could nudge shoppers to buy that produce because of the recipe ideas made apparent and easy.
Food trends popped up all over, from vegetable noodles to dragon fruit.
