Richmond Mag Gets a Sneak Peek of The Market at 25th

Richmond Magazine writes:

The new East End grocery store, The Market at 25th, is just weeks away from making its highly anticipated grand opening on Monday, April 29. The store will primarily service an area defined as a food desert for residents along the Richmond-Henrico County border, encompassing three of the city’s public housing projects and some of the neediest Richmond Public Schools. The goal is to provide a comfortable, approachable community store that celebrates the Church Hill neighborhood and East End and can serve as a central hub. “I think we’ve done a really nice job of that, hiring locals and giving local vendors an opportunity and also making this look and feel like a local store,” says developer and operator Norm Gold.

They really had to put churches on a pedestal with the aisle markings? Oh well, hopefully this place wont get trashed and everyone can enjoy it, though it does look like it has the potential to he pricey.

Yes Mark, the church is a large part of the African-American community. There is much history there. My hope is that this store reaches out to all and that it is a place where everyone can feel joy in shopping. Pollyanna-ish I know but this is a market that is needed in the area.

The store looks great. Modern, well thought out on the inside and with a design flair for older architecture on the outside. I also like the idea of giving back to locals as well as helping to bring the community together. BUT… I do take away mixed feelings about their approach about Church Hill History. Everything shown in pictures and text, ONLY relates to the African-American community and that is not historically accurate. Jackson Ward was to the black community as Church Hill was to whites. Prior to the Civil War, Church Hill was the gathering place for the wealthy… Read more »

Do we really need to be told that white people were involved? Go take a historical tour of Church Hill, you’ll learn plenty about the white history of the area. Maybe there needs to be an actual effort to focus on the African American history because it is often times left out? (Hint: There does.)
