Church Hill to soon see new grocery store 'Union Market'

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

When it comes to grocery shopping in Church Hill, some neighbors complain they have few options. That's about to change thanks to three people who live in the area are working together to open one.

 

Over the years, the building has been home to many business, most recently a restaurant, but in just a couple of months, it will open as a grocery store. It's something people who live in the area say is much needed.


After months of planning, Union Market is becoming more than just an idea. The new grocery store off Jefferson Street is the brain child of three Church Hill residents who live within a mile of the store. They've been frustrated, because there's no grocery store close by.

"We all found ourselves leaving the area to find the product that we need, so we are really looking to fill that void," said Gillian Field.

The store will offer a variety of items, including grass-fed beef, deli meats, fruits, veggies and more.

"We would really like to focus on local small batch craft items, we are really interested in supporting the community, the city and the surrounding area, so that would be our focus as much as possible."

In addition to groceries, the Union Market will feature a sandwich shop and a variety of wines and beer.

"There is really nothing like us in the area yet."

The finishing touches are still being put on Union Market. You can expect to see it open sometime in early January in Church Hill.
