Walking To The Market

I'd say the most important walkable neighborhood amenity is a nearby quality supermarket, and lacking one is a huge barrier to going without a car for those who are inclined to do so. Good urban supermarkets are actually a challenge, as even I grudgingly admit they need some parking. Space for loading docks can be an issue, and regular deliveries don't make the close neighbors very happy.
