Slice of Life #2: Super Farmer’s Markets

Idea: A farmer’s market model for supermarkets. Supermarkets rent out space within their store for butchers, cheesemongers, spice merchants, bakers, etc. so all of the best local goods available can be found under one roof.

In larger areas, farmer’s markets are available, but even there, they are rarely open 5 or 7 days a week. In most suburban areas around the country, bakeries, butcher shops, and other small businesses are quickly dying. But supermarkets rarely produce the quality goods and specialized service people come to love from these smaller shops.

Supermarkets are typically a low-margin business and this would switch this business model to a much heartier tenant-based model.
