There is finally a place to buy groceries in downtown Memphis. As the previous closest options were Miss Cordelia's on Mud Island and the Kroger on Poplar and Cleveland, City Market offers downtown residents a much closer place to pick up foodstuffs.
City Market sits right on the trolley line at the corner of Union and South Main. It's a smaller store, but it covers all of the essentials.
It has a small produce/dairy aisle where you can pick up fruits, vegetables, eggs and milk.
There is also an extensive selection of oils, vinegars and condiments for a variety of ethnic foods.
You can even pick up sundry items like lotion, toothpaste, shampoo and soap.
City Market also has a prepared food section with ready-to-eat entrees, sides and desserts. (To catch up on the specials, check out the City Market Facebook page) I highly suggest the chicken salad and the chocolate bread pudding.
