Checking Out Columbia Heights’s Odd Provisions

Odd Provisions(Odd Provisions, located at 3301 11th Street, NW).

Over the weekend, I finally found time to check out Odd Provisions, a small grocery that recently opened at the corner of 11th and Lamont streets in Columbia Heights. According to their Web site, “Odd Provisions is a contemporary corner market providing fresh and convenient food and household necessities to the residents of Columbia Heights and Park View. We feature the products of local farmers and artisans as well as a curated selection of craft beer and wine.”

Upon entering the store, I liked what I saw and can definitely see myself shopping there. While it isn’t overstocked (possibly due to how new it is), what I liked was that there is a selection of items that aren’t typically found in the larger chain stores — and definitely not in our immediate neighborhood. I found crème fraîche  in the cooler area, a nice selection of wines, vinegars, and mustards, and other specialty items such as truffle oil.

Below are a few photos to provide an idea of what to expect.

    I’d like to see them off high quality deli sandwiches to go. Hard to find in the area.

    They do have a selection of high quality, house-made deli sandwiches to go that are fantastic. They are in the deli case in the back.
