I will say it again. The closing of the old Apple Market, and then Abarrotes Mi Familia sure left a hole in this community. Apple Market was a hub of activity where people would get reasonably priced Milk, bread, and other things. The Abarrotes had a great variety of mostly Mexican foods. They tried to make it a “dual” store, with American favorites. I liked it just the way it was.
It leaves a hole in the community, and a uneasy feeling. Price Chopper is too far to walk, and Abarrotes had great deals on Mexicano foods like Cilantro, Lime, tortillas, jalapeno and other Latino groceries. I really liked their meat counter. It took me a while to figure out certain Mexican cuts of meat, but it was really good after I got the hang of it. Then, they went through the roof along with other meats.
