But as admirable as Mom’s practices are inside the LEED-certified development — the Rockville-based company’s ninth store is 100 percent wind-powered and features renewable building materials and energy-efficient refrigerators/freezers — that’s not the main reason we shop at a supermarket. We want good produce, helpful staff, unique products, local products, an easily navigable store, and, of course, lots of free samples.
How does the new Mom’s stack up? I took a tour of the place last week and found many delights, plus an oddity or two. Take a look after the jump.
