Buckley didn’t hesitate when the opportunity arose to open the Bazaar during the pandemic. She had already expanded her footprint by adding a pick-up grocery initiative when Covid-19 hit — fearful that doughnuts would be seen as a luxury item.
That addition has thrived and continues to evolve to meet demand.
“I tend to find my footing best in the chaos,” Buckley says. “If you give me a problem to solve, that’s my best time.”
Expect the 715-square-foot market to build on that. It will feature seasonal produce, meats, cheeses and other dairy offerings as well as pantry staples such as grits, flours, salts and nut butters. Cutting boards, aprons, rugs and other kitchen items will be available as well. Buckley has worked with more than 25 local purveyors on the product offerings, including Apple Brandy Beef; Annie Mae and Ivy soaps; Windcrest Organics produce; Fairshare Farm produce; and rare, vintage mini rugs from Krazy for Rugs.
