Market of Choice Opens In Bend June 16

Come June 16, Bendites will have yet another grocery shopping option on the west side of town. Located at NW Colorado Avenue off the Parkway, near the Box Factory, Market of Choice will provide fresh, organic, and natural foods and produce, as well as about 130 new jobs. The Bend location will be the company's tenth store, since the business started in 1979 in a Thrifty Store in Cottage Grove, Ore. Since then the business has expanded within Oregon to Eugene, Portland, West Linn, Corvallis, Ashland, and now, Bend.

"We're eager to open our doors and welcome customers," said Market of Choice President Rick Wright. "Bend is a great community and we're looking forward to becoming part of it."

Atlas Cider Co. Releases the Dragonfruit

Bend-based Atlas Cider Co. recently released a Dragonfruit-fueled cider to welcome the summer season with some good, old-fashioned deliciousness.
