“Avenue B Grocery“
Avenue B Grocery & Market is Austin’s oldest continuously-operated grocery store. Built in 1909 and maintained through the current (10th) owner, perhaps what is nicest about Avenue B Grocery is the grocery itself. It is one of those stores that, from tiny spaces, manage to serve up everything you could possibly want, from toiletries to fresh produce to toy airplanes. In this sense it is truly local – Hyde Parkers have probably been “just popping out to the corner store” here for decades.
