Vidalia Market to Close: How sweet it is not

Bad news for Lansdale artisanal grocery shoppers. Vidalia Marketplace will be closing their doors next week after just two years.

The alerting phonecall came as quite a surprise to me, as I was under the assumption that things were going great there.

Vidalia was a gourmet market, a little wholefoodsesque with even more of an organic feel to it.
They had an outstanding beer takeout section.
And hosted beer samplings many Saturdays.
They were the first store of their kind their size in the area.

For those of you who never went, try to swing through this week if you are in the burbs at all.
It's just about 4 miles away from the Lansdale exit on the Turnpike. 30% of all items except milk, cigs, and unfortunately beer.

  1. We miss Vidalia, for sure! Have you heard what might replace it? I heard a rumor of a Trader Joe's which would be great. Thanks.
