A reader reports:
“We’ve been noticing for several months / weeks that the corner store at 522 K Street NE has been under slow and steady renovation. Today we noticed that a temporary sign for Old City Market had been put up.”
Their website says:
“Welcome to Old City Market and Oven, your convenient corner store carrying the finest in beers, wine, coffee, roasted meats, vegetables and baked goods fresh from our wood fired oven, as well as all the other provisions you may need to stock your home. Come in and have a freshly pulled espresso or cappuccino. You can sip and sit, or browse the shelves downstairs stocked with American and International foods. Pick over our ripe fruits and vegetables. Select from our vast wine and beer offerings. Snack on our fresh baked muffins, scones, cookies and other sweet or savory treats. Savor the smell of our roasted meats, fish, and vegetables. Take your time and experience it all, while we prepare your food to your specific order, or if you’re in a rush come in and head over to our grab and go.
We are here to accommodate you. But be forewarned, all of the food that is prepared in our market is cooked the old fashioned way: with fire in caves, just the way your great, great, great, great . . . grandparents did ten thousand years ago. Come to the Market and see our cave: a huge six-foot diameter stone oven. In the morning, you will see our cooks pulling out fresh baked muffins and scones, and later in the day they will be roasting meats and vegetables. Then when you are on your way home from work, we will fire that baby up to over 700 degrees and start cooking some of the best pizzas you will find in this City!”
Stay tuned for an opening date!
