Last week a reader wrote in:

“Glen’s Garden Market which has a location in Dupont Circle will be joining Busboys and Poets in the new Takoma Central project.”

Now word comes from the Takoma Listserv:

“Apparently the developer didn’t think they would succeed and they [Glen’s Garden Market] finally had to pull out, now they have a new partnership with a developer in Shaw who is basically going to build them a new store.”
