Green Grow The Gas Pumps

Sure, we're feeling a little green. St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and we have some celebrating to do. But we're also feeling green in a much more environmentally-friendly way, too.

Although there's plenty of organic material left behind after the Greenville Avenue parade...

But that's not what we're talking about. The Green Spot Market & Fuels has always been a gas station exclusively for the tree-huggers among us (pumping biodiesel, natch). Now, however, it's more than a gas station. It's also a stop and shop food market which recently began to sell organic and local produce. It has even formed a Produce Club, which includes a 10 percent discount on all produce (excluding sale items), the ability to place special orders and suggest suppliers, a recipe exchange program and more for a $25 annual fee, which includes two membership cards per household.

The Green Spot also offers fair trade coffee, a natural soda fountain and gourmet sandwiches (whatever that means).

Come warm weather...well, consistent warm weather...The Green Spot will hold local market days once a month from 8:00 a.m. to noon and will feature local produce, dairy products, meats, eggs and other locally produced items. Look for it at 702 N. Buckner, over on the east side of White Rock Lake.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
