Twitter Facebook Email Print Photo credit: Roberto C. on Yelp. We saw this tweet yesterday and were really bummed out by it. Sure, Greenline Organic—AKA “The Tiki Hut” in our household—didn’t sell everything organic, but there were some things. They had a decent selection of cheese. Some perky vegetables at times. A nice assortment of chocolate. Awesome tortilla chips. Interesting grains. And it meant you could do some grocery shopping with out the PITA experience that can be Key Food. We’re not sure why they closed. Phone calls yield a disconnected number. We don’t know what will go in that space, but we hope it’s something the neighborhood can use. And we hope they weren’t driven out by a greedy landlord. If you have details to share about their closing, please leave us a comment or a tweet! UPDATE: Sounds like they are just closed for renovations, as per a happy handful of tweets we just received. Hooray!

I’ll be honest, I hated going in there. My husband and I loved it when it first opened, but the past 6 months, the produce has gone downhill. Every time I have gone in there, there were flies all over the food, mushy and moldy fruits and veggies. I was so disappointed and grossed out. I hate to speak badly about it, but I am glad to hear they are doing renovations! Reply Courtney Kern August 19th, 2014 So glad to hear they are just renovating- it’s a great little shop! We get some of my gluten free items from them. Maybe they will have an even larger gf selection. Reply Jennifer Juniper August 19th, 2014 What does “the PITA experience that can be Key Food” mean? Reply megc August 19th, 2014 “Pain In The Ass.” Sometimes shopping at Key Food can be so aggravating. Reply Heather August 19th, 2014 My boyfriend talked to them on Sunday and they said they are closing temporarily until November for renovations. So hopefully they will be back soon!
