The Market at 25th, a full-service grocery store, has opened at 25th Street and Fairmount Avenue, bringing new options for fresh, healthy food into a traditionally underserved area with the mission of fostering community health, economic development and unity.
The 25,000-square-foot store offers locally sourced produce, meat and seafood, along with a hot food bar, salad bar, coffee shop, pharmacy and florist. The Market at 25th features more than 70 local vendors, and more than half of the store’s staff are area residents.
The Market at 25th has partnered with the PBS KIDS Ready To Learn program, which engages children and their caregivers with programs and activities promoting reading and wellness. The program is housed in the store’s community room and is accessible to area residents.
Rideshare provider Lyft offers discounted rides to and from the store and has a lounge area within the store where shoppers can wait for rides. Van Go, Inc. of Richmond provides free transportation to and from the store for Gilpin, Mosby, Creighton, Hillside, Fairfield and Whitcomb Court residents.
