Sometimes I run across things that I file away for inspiration, that I think someday I could help create myself, or I could at least seek out similar incarnations of those inspiring things.
This new zero-package grocery store in Austin, Texas, In.gredients, is definitely one such thing:
Instead of just having some stuff in bulk, like lots of co-ops and natural foods stores, this place has everything in bulk, so that you bring all your own packages for everything, and your only buy as much as you want. A great idea, eh?
I especially like that they intend to use the space "as a community center with cooking classes, gardening workshops, and art shows on the side." Yes! Yes to multi-function spaces that invite people in and create community!
