A.R.E. Awards – Supermarket/Grocery Store – Outstanding Merit
Emphasizing architecture over decor, the rustic turn-of-the-century look of this “farmer’s market” incorporates vintage barn-style architecture, warm gondola lights, and sand-blasted redwood signage. A weathered matte finish floor evokes the look of worn leather. The “hayloft” features are distressed tongue-in-groove oak; departmental signage and soffits are oak or cedar; and other eye-catching decor is distressed to resemble barn wood, while in service areas white subway tiles are grouted to provide a vintage look.
