Grocery store opens in St. Louis 'food desert,' first one in 50 years

ST. LOUIS β€” For the first time since 1968, a new grocery store opened in north St. Louis.

Green Leaf Grocery store opened its doors to the public for the first time Monday morning for a soft opening. The grand opening will be on April 13.

β€œBy bringing affordable, fresh quality foods to the community we are able to serve a wide range of everybody from the people who have lived here for ages,” said Jessica Murray of Green Leaf Grocery.

The farm to table grocery store wants to help make the community healthier by providing better food options.

β€œI feel like [a grocery store with healthy food options] is something that St. Louis lacks,” employee Tyron Betts said.
