20th and S St, NW
Speaking of grocery stores, a few folks have written in asking for updates on Glen’s Garden Market coming to the former Townhouse/Secret Safeway space at 20th and S St, NW. I’m happy to report that construction just started and if all goes well they are planning on opening Earth Day weekend, specifically April 21st.
Owner Danielle Vogel shares some cool photos and writes:
“Instead of standard construction paper, we blew up this old photo of my maternal grandfather’s first grocery in Scotch Plains, NJ.”
“My paternal great grandfather’s first store in Manhattan. My great grandfather grew up in the apartment right above the grocery.”
