The first new business is Hamilton Bakery. Go their website and sign up to get on their mailing list for updates and invites to special events. They are currently getting all their permits finalized and finishing up construction, so hopefully we'll be deep in doughnuts soon! (You can also follow them on Facebook by searching under "Hamilton Bakery" to find out the latest updates.) They will be next to Clementine, at 5414 Harford Rd.
Speaking of Clementine, owner Winston Blick is opening a green grocery in Hamilton this Spring as well, to be called Green Onion. Described as a "bona fide food market," and write on their blog:
Soon, amazing local cheeses will appear in two grand cases, and crisp, ripe produce will fill the bins at Green Onion. The folks at Fresh McKenzie are ramping up their egg production to accommodate us. And we’re meeting with our meat purveyor to choose the best-tasting all-natural, hormone- and antibiotic-free meats for our butcher shop. Forever Endeavor Farm will supply grass-fed organic beef and milk-fed pork, which has a sweetness and fullness that can be explained by science but is better to think of as magic.I don't know about you, but I'm hungry! Green Onion will be located in the old Hamilton Vacuum store, at the corner of Hamilton and Harford. (Again, you can stay up-to-date on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/greenonionmarket.)
