News that the Giant at the Rotunda is moving west to the old Superfresh store is good news. It will be great to have a Giant that's larger and comparable to the one on York Road north of Gittings Avenue.   The bad news is that the supermarket site at the Rotunda will be vacant. Those who work at the Rotunda and  those who shop at the other stores in that once bustling shopping center will miss having a handy grocery in the building. So will the residents of Roland Park Place and the senior high rises on Roland Avenue south of 40th street.    While the Giant will not be far away, it will be down a hill and farther from those seniors than it was before.

As expected, the chain MOM's Organic Market will open a 15,000-square foot grocery store in the Rotunda, Hekemian & Co., the redeveloper of the mall announced Tuesday. MOM's succeeds Giant Food, which closed its store last year after 41 years and opened a new store nearby in the Green Spring Tower Square shopping center on 41st Street. The Rotunda had room for a 20,000-square-foot boutique grocery store, but 15,000 square feet is the MOM's model, said Chris Bell, senior vice president for development at New Jersey-based Hekemian.

RICHMOND, Va. -- When customers here enter The Fresh Market grocery story, they leave their Southern roots momentarily behind to shop like Europeans. High ceilings with exposed beams give the store the feel of an open market in Paris or London. Low lighting and classical music produce a calming affect. Oriental lillies, pink Alstromenia and other fresh exotic flowers fill buckets at the front of the store. A display of Artisan cheeses sits cater-corner to an ample section of shiny purple eggplants, crisp apples and other produce.

One Baltimore politician has declared war on dirty grocery stores, dirty restaurants, dirty hotels -- all dirt, really. Call it a one-woman (for now) crusade for cleanliness. Del. Jill P. Carter is calling it her consumer revolt. "How is it that a 'fresh market' has a filthy floor? Or 'whole foods' has an unkempt buffet? Or those rarely washed credit card machines?" Carter said on Twitter Wednesday. "The general public, paying consumers, must demand higher standards of cleanliness & quality..stop spending Ritz-C $ on Motel6 accommodations.

Upscale grocers once bypassed Baltimore and its working-class roots, but gourmet supermarkets with their artisan cheeses and fancy meats increasingly are making the area home. The latest is Greensboro, N.C.-based The Fresh Market, which plans to open its first Maryland store today in The Shops at Quarry Lake, a mixed-use development built on a former rock and gravel mine on Greenspring Avenue in Baltimore County. The Fresh Market models itself on the open-air markets in Europe. Its grocery stores are much smaller than traditional supermarkets in a design built on the hopes that shoppers will make frequent visits for the gourmet foods that are offered.

With the opening of the Fresh Market at the Shops at Quarry Lake off Greenspring Avenue, the northern part of the Baltimore area has an abundance of upscale supermarkets. These markets cater to the increasingly sophisticated tastes of customers -- and with premium ingredients and high-quality prepared foods, they can charge higher prices than conventional stores. With so many upscale choices for shoppers in this area, we decided to rate five of the stores -- Wegmans in Hunt Valley; Eddie's of Roland Park on North Charles Street; Graul's in Ruxton; Whole Foods of Mount Washington and the new Fresh Market -- on everything from the taste of their crab cakes to service and navigation.

Anyone who squeezes through a crowded farmers' market knows that now is prime time for locally grown produce. The summer's bounty - sweet corn, squash, eggplant, melons, peaches, berries, tomatoes - has arrived with the intensity of a thunderstorm. Everything looks inviting, even the okra (those green pods that when boiled become a dish some wouldn't touch with a 10-foot fork). Nationally and locally, the number of farmers' markets has grown faster than a runaway zucchini vine.

Tart or sweet? That is the question that area apple enthusiasts face this fall as a bountiful crop comes to market. Do you favor the agreeably sharp taste of a Macintosh, a Stamen Winesap, a Granny Smith? Or are you the kind of eater that goes for sweetness, one who is drawn to Gala, Red Delicious, or the honeyed juice of the hot shot Honeycrisp? Eaters in either camp, as well as those "fence hoppers" who snack on both sides of the spectrum, have plenty to pick from this autumn. The locally grown apples at farmers markets, roadside stands and even some supermarkets are both bountiful and beautiful.

Not so long ago, going to the supermarket was a pretty pedestrian act -- you stocked up on necessities and got out as fast as possible. Now we want to know: Is there local produce? Gluten-free cereal? A beautiful dinner we can heat, but not cook? Upscale supermarkets are growing to meet our demands. In the Baltimore area, the latest comer is Fresh Market, which opened in July at the Shops at Quarry Lake. Its arrival led us to investigate what the premium market had to offer, and we checked out four competitors in the northern area of Baltimore -- Eddie's of Roland Park; Graul's in Ruxton; Wegmans and Whole Foods.
