River St. Market’s Meatball Sub

By Lynda Wheatley | May 21, 2022

Yeah, salads are a stupendous choice for summertime. But it ain’t summer yet. And as good as the salads look on River St. Market’s just-unveiled spring/summer menu, we could not resist getting our mitts on their new meatball sub. Envision, if you will, one toasty house-baked bun filled with super flavorful Italian-style meatballs, plus pesto(!), plus marinara(!), plus provolone(!)—all for $9. It fits in your hand and more than fills your belly, which is exactly what you need to happen before strolling their gourmet grocery stock and other treats. Otherwise, trust us: You’re walking out of there with several tins of 1949 Nuts; a few tubs of Mitica Orange Delights, Chococherries, and Marcona Almonds; River St.’s own fresh Cinnamon Nugs (with vanilla butter cream for dipping!); two jars of fancy cocktail onions; and a four-pack of Casamara Club Como Leisure Soda—because, really, who doesn’t need some of THAT? Get yourself to 127 River St. in Elk Rapids to see for yourself. But don’t say we didn’t warn you. (231) 264-9266
