Another Hurdle Cleared for Rock Creek Market

Rock Creek MarketI was greeted by a real treat when I returned home from work last night … the sight of Rock Creek Market making real progress. The refrigeration units have arrived and are ready to install!

I was also fortunate enough to meet the future manager of the market who invited me into the space to see the progress for myself. I am very impressed — it really looks like its going to be nice. There were rows of empty shelves waiting to be stocked, a nice checkout counter that was completely free of a cage and safety glass, and cooler parts waiting to be assembled (having just arrived).

If all goes well, the market could be open in as little as two more weeks. One thing that they would like to do but have been unable to get a license for is to operate a deli, which would permit them to sell open cups of coffee. If this is a service that you’d support at Rock Creek Market make sure you attend tonight’s Park View UNC meeting at the Rec Center. There will be a petition you can sign to support the deli license.

    Very exciting news, indeed! Still, I would love to see some planter boxes on the windows or maybe a few huge pots like the ones that were recently placed at the Donatelli development. Green does brick and mortar such wonderful good.

    Down here in Bloomingdale several markets have removed the bullet-proof glass in the last few years. Unfortunately all of them have been held up multiple times since then. I certainly appreciate the desire to have a more “normal” shopping experience, but don’t be too surprised if the owners reconsider that decision in the future.
