What Business Do You Want in Long Valley?

Everyone has opinions. Patch is the place to share them.

Washington Township isn't exactly known for a major business district, but there are plenty of stores and eateries in town for residents to take in.

For some, having to go outside of the town lines for retail purchases can be a burden, while for others it's exactly why they live here–because of the solitude.

So, Long Valley Patch wants to know what business you think would fit well in Washington Township? Would you like to see a sporting goods store, a new restaurant, or something of that nature?

Or, do you think Washington Township is fine the way it is?

As always, thanks for participating.

We love Maria's. The sandwiches are great as are the breads.

An update: Turns out the (delicious!) breads weren't selling well enough in LV, so you need to either drive to their Chester location to get the bread, or else call ahead to have your bread brought to the LV location. They also have yummy soups which nobody mentioned here. And I think they close at 3 PM weekdays. And they don't have soy milk for lattes, but you can bring your own and they will use it.

Is BareFoods Catering already out of business? thought I saw a for rent sign up! If so, that was really quick!

I hope BareFoods Catering succeeds… I really do! But it’s apples & oranges comparing it to a place like Subway. I perused their menu for food to go; Pasta Bolognaise ($12.50), lasagna ($13.50), Turkey Meatloaf ($9.50), Beef Stew ($14.50), Garlic Pork Chops ($13.00). It all sounds delicious, but let’s face it… most people are looking for a place where you can get a quick sandwich that takes just minutes to make, and costs around $5.00. If I walked into BareFoods on a whim, would I have a meal to go in my hands within 5 minutes??? What are their hours operation??? That’s my point… as cynical as it may sound; these high concept places sound great on paper, but do they ever really succeed in our town?

Thanks Claire. We can't wait for the farm to open back up (and starting this summer we will have fresh bread and dairy products for our customers convenience)!! We also have lots of fun at LVGM, I view it as a town event where people can come out and walk around on a nice summer day, sipping coffee and having a cupcake from the market and socialize with familiar faces and pick up fresh produce for dinner.
