Little Eater Produce and Provision joining North Market

Nicholas Dekker, Columbus Alive contributor

Chef Cara Mangini will now be pulling double-duty at the North Market. Last month she opened Little Eater, a veggie-forward stall serving salads, sandwiches, bowls, quiche and baked goods.

This week the North Market announced Mangini is also heading up the replacement for The Greener Grocer with her Little Eater Produce and Provisions. Greener Grocer closed at the end of 2014 when owner Michael Jones moved on to other ventures.

The new stall will feature market produce, as expected, as well as pantry items selected from nearby farms. Mangini also plans to focus on customer education by offering demonstrations, samples and classes on cooking and knife skills.

Little Eater Produce and Provisions is expected to open in early April.
