Biz Buzz: The Cast Iron Goose in Church Street Market
The Cast Iron Goose, a country general store inspired business, opened in Edgewood inside the Church Street Market about a month ago. Owner, Amanda Ruane said the business originally started off as a farm store because she had a small farm in Tijeras. She said the community was looking for alternative groceries that cannot be found at places like Smith's and Walmart.
Cast Iron Goose offers products including local honey, farm fresh eggs, specialty sodas, old fashioned candy, popcorn, beer-making kits, cheese-making kits, and sandwiches.
In addition to that Cast Iron Goose features local artisans and is currently selling hand-sewn products from a local woman in Edgewood.
“It's like a general store with sandwiches,” Ruane said. She said the price range of the food is $4 to $12 and the price range of the entire store is 20¢ to $750. Ruane said she wanted to create a fun atmosphere that kids would like, and so she could have a fun job and be her own boss. “I wanted to bring back the happier, nostalgic days,” she said.
The Cast Iron Goose is located inside the Church Street Market in Edgewood. They are open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. They are also on Facebook.
