Mark Holmberg has nice look what the Chimborazo Market has become as the neighborhood around it has changed over the past decade:
“It was pretty tough,” said longtime cashier Stacy Williams.
And oh-so slowly, the neighborhood came back to life.
“Now, you can see for yourself,” Williams said as she worked happily at the front of the store.
The whole block in front of the market has been redeveloped. The apartments behind were refurbished.
And the Chimborazo Market evolved into a complete inner city grocery, with fresh fruits, vegetables, freshly butchered meat and what customers say are the lowest prices in metro Richmond.
