THE MILKMAN STILL DELIVERS

In the old days, the doctor used to make house calls, someone pumped your gas at the station and best of all fresh milk was delivered every morning by the milkman. But those days are gone. Or are they?

Washington's Green Grocer will deliver on a weekly basis fresh organic produce, fruit, cheese and, yes, milk to your door. A couple of hippie chefs years ago started this service on Capitol Hill, and we salute them for providing good service. Something we in DC have learned to live without.


They deliver small and large boxes to DC and to NOVA and Maryland too. "The business idea sprouted one day when we went shopping at our local grocery store in Dupont Circle and decided that we were tired of buying "tired" produce and thought there were probably many others who felt the same way," John and Lisa Zechiel say on their website.

"Our priority and focus is to provide excellent quality produce and customer service to every customer while helping to grow, support and encourage sustainable local agriculture." Sounds great to DC Bubble.
