Side Dishes: Wooing Williston

Health-food junkies in South Burlington can get their grains on at the new incarnation of Healthy Living. But since November 26, Williston shoppers have been picking up their produce at Natural Provisions on Harvest Lane.

This weekend, the store plans to throw a grand opening celebration, complete with wine tasting, gift-basket raffles, lots of free samples and a visit from Governor Jim Douglas. It'll also kick off its new Sunday brunch. The in-store café already offers freshly baked breads and pastries, homemade soups and hot entrées, as well as gluten-free goodies.

How has business been so far? According to manager Allison Lafferty, whose parents own NP and its sister store in St. Johnsbury, "The great thing is, even in an area as big as Chittenden County, we're getting to know customers by first names."
