When Sartre said “hell is other people,” he probably had just returned from a farmers market. While Savvy loves supporting her local producers, she’s probably not the only one out of that happy, hippie mass who isn’t enchanted by tripping over strollers bearing hemp-swaddled tots every time she wants to snag some sorrel. Now her favorite folks from Clementine have created a more civilized alternative: the Green Onion Market. Head over to Harford Road (yes, it’s east of York Road, but you’ll be fine) for all-natural, local, organic and humane meats from Genuine Food, organic dairy from Prigel Family Creamery, brown eggs from Fresh McKenzie, Duroc bacon, a case with 32 cheeses (one of the biggest, outside of Whole Foods— yay!), plus all-natural, local, in-season produce. There’s even fresh stocks and soups, house-made jams and all-natural and organic dry goods like pasta, beans and flour (they’re even grinding fresh grits). In short, it’s a foodie heaven for the rest of us. Don’t miss: Clementine charcuterie like Jaegerwurst (a cured and smoked sausage), which was just nominated for an Alice Waters Good Food Award. 5500 Harford Road,
