[Tagging] Greengrocer vs grocery vs shop=food?

the definition of shop=food is way way way to vague to have meaning. it needs to be much narrower. 

it is like shop=goods. we don’t need that either.

"Also, I am clueless as to how to enter a "gourmet food store" to begin with. Any help or clarification in this matter would be greatly appreciated”

(from the talk page)

I think this is the interesting bit - and one tagging shop=food is trying to solve. 

By being a catch-all, it has no set value. 

Carve off specialty import/foreign goods into it’s own tag, and perhaps shop=gourmet for fancy specialty foods (though perhaps those are shop=deli ?? I dont know). 

the continued discussion for take-n-bake shops (still feels like fast food to me, but I will defer to the group) also removes a lot of those uses. 

What is left? probably a bunch of mis-tagged shops. 

somewhere out there is Jimbo’s turnip store and Taro’s Mochi shop, but those can probably filter into other tags as well (greengrocer, dessert, etc). 

I don’t think we should have shop=food + food=turnip    or   shop=food + food=mochi. 

Honey shops? Miso Paste?

we use shop=yes and sells=* for those (as I understand it)

for the oddball shops, this seems to be the solution to me.
