Oooh here’s some tasty scuttlebutt:
Ed. Note: I give this scuttlebutt an 85% accuracy rating. STAY TUNED.
Union Kitchen Grocery on a tear!! Their original Capitol Hill location is located at 538 3rd Street, NE. Their second location is located at the Convention Center in Shaw and their are plans for another location for Franklin Square.

“signage up for Streets Market in Cleveland Park. Spoke with an employee entering store who said they will open on Monday, June 11. He let me peek in: bright & clean with freezers & shelves already stocked. Looking good!”
And as you can see in the photo above, they’ll also be selling beer and wine.
Ed. Note: I hear they could be soft opening as early as this weekend!
Gonna take a minute to get used to the new signage. RIP Brookville. (more…)

Thanks to Ryan for sending a Navy Yard Whole Foods update. “They finished putting the sign up today.” Anyone hear rumors of an opening date? I’ve emailed Whole Foods and will update if/when I hear back. Update from Whole Foods: “We don’t have an open date to share at this point.”
What do you think – June? July? STAY TUNED.

The placard posted outside Brookville for the coming Street Market says:
“A new Retailer’s Class B full service grocery store with a Tasting Permit.”
With hours listed as Sunday through Saturday 7am – 11pm.
“This is sort of interesting.. Brookville never had a license to sell any sort of alcohol. In fact, 5 years ago the only place to get liquor on the entire block was Cleveland Park Wine & Spirits, and now there are no less than 4 places (Weygandt, Yes!, Walgreens.)”
Ed. Note: Yes! and Walgreens also sell beer and wine, not spirits.

The nearly 20,000 square foot store in Union Market will feature 17 cash registers and murals that pay tribute to Union Market, Galluadet University’s Bison mascot, Ivy City and the other D.C. Trader Joe’s locations. Hours of operation for the new store will be from 8am-9pm daily. On opening day, Store Captain Rebekah Eagle, a 12-year veteran of the company, and Crew Members will be on hand to greet and assist customers. The grand opening celebration, complete with live music and food tastings will take place moments before the store officially opens for business.

7:55am Ceremony begins

And thanks to a tipster for sending word about a Streets Market and Cafe coming to Noma too. Streets confirms to me they’ll be coming to 51 M Street, NE in the ground floor of the new AVA NoMa apartment building. Updates as they get closer to opening.
Ed. Note: Streets Market opened their first DC location at 14th and Belmont Street, NW back in 2014 and the second at 1221 Massachusetts Avenue, NW back in July. They’ll be opening their 3rd location in the Brookville Supermarket in Cleveland Park.

Yesterday, upon attempting to pay my Chase credit card bill, I found that there were almost $1500 in charges on my card that I didn’t recognize: three square charges (two $500 charges and one $100 charge) to someone (or some company) called Kasiya Omotosho, an “in-person transaction” labeled “Bronx, NY” for another $100, and a $75 charge to a website called kuuya.com. Chase has since cancelled my card and they’re shipping me a new one, but I’ve only used the card twice in the last week: one was at my place of employment (where I swiped the card myself) and one of those times was this past Sunday at the Giant in Columbia Heights, similar to a story you published about a year ago. [Ed. Note: That incident was at the H Street, NE Giant.] Same as that story, I used cashier checkout and the card had a chip.
I contacted store customer service for the Columbia Heights Giant and they said they weren’t aware of any issues. Has anyone else had these issues recently? Thanks for your help!”

From the owner of Streets Market:
“Streets Market is excited to confirm that we will be coming to Cleveland Park in the next couple of months. We are very eager to be a part of this community, and carry forward the hard work the current family and team have put into Brookville Market over the past few decades. We will give the place a little freshen up, add some variety (conventional, organic, local, kosher, specialty etc), but stay true to our objective of being your local grocery store focused on quality, price, and great customer service. More to come as we get closer to opening.”
