Our third Lego project - 10185 Green Grocer

  • Model: 10185 Green Grocer
  • 2352 pieces
  • Released in 2008
  • Retail price: $149.99 USD
Our completed Green Grocer! :) Stayed tuned for our next project, the Grand Emporium!

Following our Lego ship projects (Imperial Flagship and Brickbeard's Bounty), we chanced upon the Modular Building series and we decided to embark on a quest to collect and build all the Lego sets in this series; Green Grocer is our first completed building.

The front of the shop is tiled, a feature of all the Modular Buildings we have seen so far. Kudos to Lego's designers, they have spared no details in stocking this green grocer with fruits, vegetables and even a refrigerator. The second and third floor are realistic looking live-in areas, as evidenced by the mailboxes on the first floor along the walk-through pathway and the rooftop garden and bbq. As with most Modular Buildings, the Green Grocer also comes complete with a fire escape staircase.

The Green Grocer comes with four minifigs, a cat and a mouse. For a more complete play experience, we recommend putting it next to other Modular Buildings; at the time of the publication, Cafe Corner, Market Street, Grand Emporium, Fire Brigade and Pet Shop have been produced by Lego. We urge fellow Lego enthusiasts to collect some, if not all, of the above and combine them to create a beautiful Lego town!

Finally! :)
