Atkins Farms has been in the business of growing apples for more than 100 years, so what you see as blossoms in spring near the store will be on the counters later in the year. In addition, there will be produce grown all year from Massachusetts to Mexico, bakery treats to eat in or take out and a rounded selection of milk, meat and other items that let you do one-stop shopping. But a service you may not know about is Atkins Savory Suppers (atkinssavorysuppers.com), which lets you come in to the Atkins kitchen, choose from already prepared ingredients—including meat or seafood and peeled and chopped vegetables—and, with help from Atkins staff, design a dinner that will serve four to six people. Look, mom: no shopping, hardly any cleaning up.
