Now Open: Rock Creek Market
The wait is over, and in my opinion it was worth it. Rock Creek Market opened this morning at 7:30 am. In talking to Shewangezaw Tilahun — owner of the market — there is still a lot to figure out. Chief among the issues are establishing fixed operating hours. These will likely be adjusted over the next couple of weeks to better serve the neighborhood’s needs.
Another thing that still isn’t completely set is what will be carried at the market. While they have a good selection of items already, they have a sign up sheet at the counter so you can tell them what you’d like to have in the store if you don’t see it.
There is still more to come. They have not obtained their license for beer and wine yet, but that should be soon. They are also working on getting a deli license which will allow them to sell coffee and sandwiches.
Stop by and check it out. When you do, you’ll likely meet Shewangezaw’s daughter, Meron, who is managing the store.
