Picking up the mantle of local, sustainable food are new owner Don Otto, a Roxbury native, and his family. In early February, the name will change to Don Otto's Natural & Organic Market. According to former owner James Lionette, the staff will remain, aside from him.

Don Otto's website states the new market will be similar but not identical to Lionette's. Changes in the works: a sandwich menu and a bigger selection of cheese.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
