Just inside the main entrance of Melrose Market, Homegrown planted the second installment of their successful, sustainable sandwich shop.  A vast menu highlights local, organic ingredients and inventive sandwiches such as ‘crab cake with bacon + avocado’, ‘meatloaf BLT’ and ‘Bluffernutter’, a peanut butter and bacon sandwich with marshmallow fluff.   Housemade chips are crispy salty goodness.  Several salads, homemade soups and seasonal specials round out the lunch fare.  Around noon, the line snaking out the door speaks for itself.  Mornings are quieter affairs with choices narrowed down to a few breakfast sandwiches or oatmeal with nuts and fruit.  Stumptown coffee is available all day.  A late night weekend menu features the sort of fried food you crave after a night of drinking, only organic.    Indoor seating is limited but additional outdoor seating is a bonus during warmer months. 

Homegrown refers to their sustainable philosophy as ‘sandwich environmentalism.’  Also known as good food you can feel good about eating.
