Goodies Produce

Briefly Noted

Cesar Hervert is a Zingerman's fan, too.

"I love those guys," says the owner of Tmaz Taqueria and the new Goodies Produce on Packard. "They inspire me to do my business that way."

Hervert could be speaking about his own sunny enthusiasm--but he's actually referring to Zingerman's model of growing a collection of food-related businesses. With the opening of Goodies in September, he's on his way. In addition to produce, he's selling pantry, grocery, and specialty items, such as Mexican ingredients and fresh cheeses.

"It is a family here, working so hard," says Hervert. "We are trying to be a part of the community."

Goodies is also home to the independent money transfer business formerly located inside Tmaz. That allowed the taqueria to significantly increase its seating, a much needed upgrade for the restaurant that opened with just two tables last year.

Goodies Produce, 3184 Packard. Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Closed Sun. No phone.    (end of article)
