At SGS, we offer hand-selected grocery provisions to meet the community’s daily needs and to delight guests of the village.  We give emphasis to fresh, locally produced and artisan goods while striving to offer convenient-to-find items too.  After all, we humans are complex–and so are our food & grocery choices.

Over the years, we’ve seen our motor oil, pet food, tobacco products and sodas rub elbows with the likes of fine cheeses and meats, handcrafted skin care products, amazing small batch chocolates, and ingredients for cooks of all stripes.

We’re always seeking to find new products we can be proud to offer–and we take suggestions!  Feel free to email us at saxgenstore@gmail.com with requests.  When we can’t carry an item, we can very often special order it for you.  And we offer 10% off full cases of items–especially WINE and BEER!

Roots Run Deep

February 12, 2016

I’ve always been fascinated by individuals I encounter whose families have a deep heritage and rooted connection to a specific geographic region.  My mother’s grandmother was born in Italy and my father’s great-grandparents were born in Ireland, so I don’t have a deep familial connection to a certain place here in the United States.  Mike Kirk lives on a piece of land that has been in his family s …
