The issue of a downtown food desert has long been a rallying cry in the Chattanooga food movement, but as a new documentary reminds us, there is, in fact, a full-service, community-oriented grocery store right on Market Street.

“For Real,” a 20-minute film that turns its lens on Buehler’s Market, debuts tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Created by University of Tennessee at Chattanooga graduate Monika Groppe, the documentary will be screened outdoors at the premiere cookout party in the 700 block of Market Street.
