Being A Picky Eater Is a Sure Way to Get a Grocer's Attention

Comfort food took on new meaning with a surge in demand for very specific comestibles: gluten-free pastries, nitrite-free hot dogs, artisan-made chocolates, shade-grown coffee, monkey-picked teas, even so-fresh-they're-illegal eggs and cheeses sold through parking-lot black markets. Our food shopping habit has changed from weekly chore to browse-and-bite amusement, with Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Tom Leonard's Farmer's Market, Ellwood Thompson's Natural Market, and boutique butcheries and bakeries redefining what's tasty and even status-worthy in Richmond pantries.

Food Trend of the Decade: You're in charge.

Runner-Up: Farmers' markets; locavore movement; the rise of food bloggers
