I can't say enough good things about the Merc! They have delicious deli foods and salad bar for lunch or dinner. I consider the Merc a "real" grocery store because of their local produce and meat. You can't go wrong here.
The Merc Deli is my favorite place to pick up food. One of my favorite packaged items is the black beans and yellow rice with tomatoes, onions and spices. I also love the butternut squash and white bean salad made with a hint of maple syrup. The hot bar has some amazing options, and I can get exactly the portion sizes I want.
The prices are competitive with other casual restaurants I go to, and the food tastes a lot better and is better for me.
