138 U Street, NE via Yang Market
“Yang Market has been the cornerstone of Eckington for over 70 years. Located at the corner of Summit & U Streets NE, the store opened in the 1940s as one of many District Grocery Stores (DGS) operating throughout the region. Yang Market has stood witness to the evolution of our neighborhood and city ever since.
Yang Market’s closing last December was a blow to the neighborhood because it was more than a convenience store, but an integral part of Eckington’s history. We saw the need to restore this cornerstone as the place you can get your morning coffee and bagel, satisfy your sweet tooth, and we’ll even be there when you run out of dog food.
Although it has only been closed for seven months, a great deal of elbow grease was required to bring Yang Market back to life. From the removal of the bulletproof glass, installing a new floor, freshly painted walls, to a double deep cleaning – This restoration has been a family labor of love. Our combined backgrounds include graphic & interior design, home & business organization, hospitality, and marketing. Not only do we see owning Yang Market as a great way to put all our skills to use, but we also want to provide a space for all of Eckington to enjoy.
We’ve taken care of the heavy lifting and now reaching out to our friends and neighbors for help stocking Yang Market with your favorite things. We look forward to reopening the doors of this Eckington treasure!
– Alex & Kathleen”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
