Episode #65 - Kosta Drosos of Fresh Market Place

If you need anything grocery-related, just give this week’s guest a call. Whether it’s fielding over 400 text messages at the dawn of Covid, surveying the neighborhood for interest in new products, or doing some personal shopping for Tim’s mom, Kosta Drosos is a model of hospitality in the grocery lane, and Fresh Market Place, the independent store he manages in Bucktown, is a community institution. We go deep on process and procedure this episode: the tricky margins of grocery, surpassing customer expectations, and the invaluable — if often overlooked — role of grocers in the culinary scene. Plus: we suss out Tim’s dad’s suspiciously meager yield of goat meat.
