For the gourmet-minded, health-obsessed, there are Whole Foods, and its less expensive cousin, Trader Joe's. Baltimore also offers seasonal farmer's markets both in the city and in surrounding counties. And then there are Graul's and Eddies, both run by local families for at least three generations. Everyone who shops at Graul's in Ruxton knows its famous checker, Lester, who seems to know all his customers' names — and their life histories. And Anthony, the Ruxton Graul's long-time manager, seems to know all his customers' tastes. For example, once when I walked into the store, Anthony said, "Lynne, blueberries are on sale," knowing I eat healthily. Pat, in the meat department, always greets me by name, even though she knows I rarely eat meat.
