Spring Valley woman opens Simply Fresh

SPRING VALLEY — A passion for cooking and baking has led Lindsay Ponsetti of Spring Valley to recently open Simply Fresh in her hometown.

“I have always liked to cook and bake,” she said. “It has always been my dream to own a small grocery store.”

Simply Fresh is an organic grocery store where Ponsetti also sells sandwiches, salads, smoothies and more.

Her hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Ponsetti posts her daily soup special on her Facebook page.

In addition to breakfast and lunch specials, Ponsetti sells produce boxes where customers can build their own box containing different organic fruits or vegetables.

Organic sandwiches and gluten-free options are available along with smoothies, coffees and teas.

“After I had my children, I changed my eating habits,” she said. “In the past five years when I have had my kids, I now have a different lifestyle than earlier.”

Simply Fresh is located at 808 W. Dakota St. The store’s phone number is 815-663-8488. Her email address is Simplyfresh808.hotmail.com.
