Ok, so the days left in July are numbered and Westerly Natural Market in Manhattan, NYC has promised to reopen before the end of the month. Happy Birthday to me! Personally, I’m excited. I’m curious as to what their reception will be. I spotted a woman in Whole Foods with a Westerly tote bag and when I made mention of their re-opening, she didn’ have much of a reaction than a blink-and-you’d-have-missed-it smile and a placative, ‘hmmm.’ (Might have been the stranger randomly approaching her thing. I hear that can put people off.) After five months of getting by without, will the loyalists, so lost at the close of February, flock back? Or have they flown the coup to other feeding grounds? Well, we’ll never know if they don’t actually follow through this time. So cross your fingers.
