Austin Chronicle -
South Congress' renaissance has been so successful, it's easy to forget its roots. With its proximity to the Capitol, its past is peppered with tryst-seeking dome denizens. The colorful corridor has even been known as a haven for hookers and drug dealers. Aside from its checkered past, Congress was also the main avenue of "respectable" commerce for adjoining neighborhoods: butcher shops, drugstores, and bakeries. You'd hardly know from today's über-trendy eateries and boutiques. Gratefully, some homegrown convenience survives amid the hipster haunts of today. The most welcome new addition in the spirit of neighborliness is Farm to Market Grocery. A sweet little shop, it's practical in its selection of milk, eggs, wine, canned tomatoes, cleaning supplies, etc., plus it champions locally grown produce, flowers, and shelf stable items. Proprietors Peg and Angela are setting down new roots with their throwback to old-fashioned friendliness: Kids, grandmas, and even hipsters all feel equally welcome here.
