Welcome to Lilburn: Main Street Market

A new shop on Main Street sells things you won't find at most supermarkets, and some things you may not have seen since childhood.

Ever have a hankering for a NeHi Peach soda? Or those chewy Mary Jane's you had as a child? And remember those Peanut Butter Logs, with the black stripes on the packaging?

Head on over to Main Street Market at 79D Main Street, across the street from city hall, and stock up on all these things and more.

Owner Bruce Hosch, a Lilburn native who opened the store last week, is filling a niche by stocking things you won't find in Publix or Kroger. Along with the old-timey candies and sodas, the shop offers an assortment of specialty chips (mixed vegetables, spinach and artichoke, to name a few), pickles (including hot okra) and sauces.

Hosch owned Dexter's Farm and then Farm Fresh in Tucker.

"Most people retire at my age, but I decided to buy myself a job," Hosch joked.

The store also sells fresh fruit and vegetables, and in the summer, Hosch plans to add Italian ice and boiled peanuts. He's also adding a line of Amish products, including honey.

Main Street Market is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m.

I like the Cheerwine! You can't find that everywhere!

I don't think I've ever had Cheerwine. I'll have to try it next time. Those vegetable chips were awesome.

Sheila and I enjoy shopping there. The vegetables are premium and priced a bit lower than the big store. Old fashioned ginger ale and pepper jelly ... among other things.

Tomatoes at 99 cents per pound and they taste home grown.
