A downtown grocery store that has some connection with Market Street Wine Shop. Small and cramped, but bright. Full service grocery store with a decent sized beer selection. Local stuff and US micros mainly. Less common stuff but no rarities. No small format singles that Iíve seen. Decent prices, nice enough staff.

The aisles are a little tight, but one can find everything he/she needs here. MSM is a great grocer that carries everything from fresh produce to fresh hot soups and sandwiches, to delicious beer. The employees are very friendly without being at all bothersome. And the beer prices are pretty competitive with much larger grocery stores. A really nice place to check out, maybe not my first stop in Charlottesville if Iím looking for a rarity, but they did carry plenty of Hopslam this time around.
