Wow, a beanery. Weren't they common during the depression? I love me some beans. I love making slow roasted pork with mayocobas. Mmmmm.

Ya know, Jan, even I am not old enough to remember the Depression -- but it sounds like something that would have gone over well back then.

And perhaps in New England, beaneries might have sold Boston baked beans. tells me that "beanery" is also slang for a restaurant of any sort, so maybe that's where I heard the word before.


What a great idea inside a grocery store! This would be a regular stop for me if I lived there. Every place people live has something interesting like this.

Yeh, Cathy, it is a great idea. The market is in a tough location with a small residential neighborhood and the college as customer base, so it strives to be distinctive by carrying som exotic beers, making good homemade sausage, and having that beanery (which has separate ownership -- I think). All reasons to bring folks in.


Oh my goodness day-old beans are creamier than fresh, and they are cheaper; totally a good thing!! Now all I have to do is move to Yuma...

ed (from Yuma)

Well, AZ, there are worse places in AZ to live than Yuma, that's fur sure. The day-old beans are a steal. Always at least as good as the fresh ones.

The market where Tudor's beans were sold has gone out the of business. Where did Tudor's Beanery relocate?

ed (from Yuma)

I have not heard of a new location, Eric. I'm not sure of the exact relation between the market and the beanery. The local paper hinted that the market owners may open a smaller place. But for now, you'll have to make your own beans. :-(
