They’re back—back where most of us knew them many years ago—in the grocery business. Nelson and Tracy Wolff are an inspirational team. In my reporting days, I enjoyed opportunities to cross paths with Nelson— first in his role as mayor and then as county judge (a post he still holds). Nelson never pulled punches. He always said what was on his mind and was a straight shooter. Tracy, his beautiful bride, has moved mountains for charities not to mention her impressive role at the helm of the renovation of the Bexar Child Abuse and Neglect Court. Now, she’s president of of their new business.
The two are working together more than ever as they launch their new grocery endeavor Green Field’s Market…a new adventure they didn’t have to take. I’m so glad they did.
It’s very similar to the Sun Harvests Nelson and his family ran years ago, but Green Fields is ‘theirs’. Their heart and soul is in the business, and it shows.
I popped in this week to say hello and found Tracy hard at work. She said Nelson had been in earlier sacking groceries. The beautiful Stone Oak store is charming…smaller than you might expect, but it packs a powerful punch. Beautiful organic produce, a bakery with lots of goodies, the expected vitamins and supplements but some unexpected gems.
Tracy showed me a line of jams created by a San Antonio woman that appeals to wine fans with flavors of White Zinfandel, Cabernet and Champagne. Also, there’s an interesting line of skin care products. An organic line created by an Austin woman peaked my interest. Plus, GFM has some of the prettiest artisanal soaps I’ve seen.
So check ’em out at Stone Oak Parkway and Huebner. A niche grocery (HEB will still be on your to do list) whose products are sure to find a comfy place in your home.
