From an email:

“I thought your readers would be interested to know that the market has rebranded as Gorebet, which means neighborhood in Amharic and reflects owner Neja Ali’s Ethiopian roots. In keeping with the warm and welcoming environment emblemized by its homemade sambusas — savory Ethiopian pastries stuffed with vegetables or chicken — Gorebet is further embracing its community by offering a variety of DC-made products. These include in-demand healthier and fresher options, such as:

  • Qui 2 Life, a woman- and minority-owned beverage brand offering locally made kombucha
  • Monkey, an affordable and nutritious grab-and-go bar that’s raw, vegan, paleo and Whole30-friendly
  • Fresh, local produce sourced from Community Foodworks’ farmers markets. CFW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to pioneering strategies for an equitable and resilient community-based food system. Their Pop-Up Fodo Hub delivers fresh produce to dozens of community institutions across the city.

Gorebet will also be the pickup site for the Market Share, a weekly subscription of fruits and veggies from area farms operated by Community Foodworks. For more information on the program, visit, or contact [email protected].

Gorebet’s grand opening week begins on Monday, September 23rd, and will feature lunchtime demos that Wednesday (9/25) to Friday (9/27) by Capitol Kettle CornQui 2 Life and NATIVSol.”
