Part of why Woodridge was declared a hot neighborhood

From a press release:

“Good Food Markets will host a grand opening event at its flagship location at 2006 Rhode Island Avenue, NE on Saturday, January 24, 2014, owners Kris Garin and James Anderson announced today.

The event will begin at 10:30am with remarks from Councilmembers Kenyan McDuffie (D – Ward 5), David Grosso (D – At Large), and Elissa Silverman (I – At Large) and an official ribbon cutting. The store will feature samples, music, and in-store events will until 9pm.

“We are a community grocery store with a focus on providing our neighbors with fresh, high quality produce, essential groceries and healthy, delicious grab-and-go meals all at affordable prices,” Cristina Moody, vice president of marketing and community outreach.

“They will offer unique access to fresh produce and to good quality food you can’t find at that end of Rhode Island Avenue,” Kyle Todd, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Avenue Main Street said. “We were really impressed with the efforts they made to reach out to the community about what kinds of products they’d like to have,” he added.

Housed in a circa-1920s building, the 1000 square foot space has undergone major interior and exterior renovations. Good Food Markets will be open 9am – 9pm seven days a week.”

    They’re going to get sick of my face in this store!

  • Very nice!
    Can we get one of these in Takoma DC? Pleeeeease?

  • We could use something like this at 14th & Colorado.

  • I was here last week- the prepared chicken salad was DELICIOUS and staff/owners (not sure) was so nice! I was happy to see an area with a few per/lb bins. Hope they expand this area!

  • Would love a place like this on 11th St. in Columbia Heights!

  • I popped in today and bought a few fresh items. The produce selection was definitely decent. The prepared items (made at/by DC Central Kitchen) were yummy. I work in the area (in Langdon) and this is a welcome spot for lunch as there is next to nothing nearby. I love that I can also get some groceries there. The staff was super friendly so all in all it was a good experience.

  • As a community development donor/investor we usually do not get a chance to eat the outcomes and benefits of our work. DC LISC is very pleased to be a investor in Good Food Markets through Friends of Rhode Island. On Saturday at the opening I purchased few a grocery items at the Market; best of all was the yummy mashed sweet potatoes made by DC Central Kitchen. Just the right item to include with our Sunday dinner.

  • Awesome for this stretch of RIA. I heard that work has commenced at Ni-Do and should open sometime in late-spring/early-summer if all goes well with DCRA. This is a hot neighborhood, but so far it’s only the tip of the iceberg!
