On Earth Day weekend (April 21), Dupont Circle will be home to an independent specialty market dedicated to sourcing wholesome, locally grown foods. Glen’s Garden Market will open at 20th and S Streets NW — the former home of the Safeway Townhouse store.
“We could not be more excited about welcoming our neighbors into the store on Earth Day weekend,” said Danielle Vogel, proprietor of Glen’s Garden Market. “We have spent years finding the most delicious foods, wines and beers our region has to offer, and we can’t wait to share them.”
The 5,000-square-foot space will feature foods from the states of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, which includes DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New York.
“You will be amazed by all of the wonderful products we’ve been able to find close by,” said Vogel.
A former Dupont resident, herself, Vogel chose the location because she feels the neighborhood will “welcome a concept like ours.”
“It seemed like the perfect place to nestle our neighborhood market,” she said. Glen’s Garden Market has been under construction since December 2012.
