Bodega Market Coming to Trinidad

Sorry for the cell phone photo, but we finally have new signage at the former site of Darby's Market at Florida & Montello Ave. No word yet on when it will open.

The building the shady Trinidad Market is in is for sale, which is great news.

Soooooo what will it have? Who's behind it? And why are they calling it Bodega Market when a bodega is a market?

Thanks for the reminder to post that news. Really should have gone up earlier.

I too thought bodega just meant market. The internet informed me that the term has a much broader meaning. I think it's likely that this will just be a corner store given its location.

Hopefully it will not be a generic Latino grocer with Inca cola, Red Bull tallboys, and pork rinds.

I'm just looking forward to a basic corner store where I can pick up some eggs, bread, juice, or milk if I run out.

Brother's Liquor has largely eliminated their non-liquor store offerings, so the absence of Darby's has been noticeable.

This would become my go-to place if they could just put a couple of organic staples on the shelves, in between the pork rinds and the bubble gum. Organic milk and cage-free eggs. Please.

This, in no way, prevents you from also selling cheap, hormone-laden milk and aging Big Agro eggs. Just give me a couple of organic staples since the new Giant is totally uninterested in tapping into that market.

You clearly haven't been to the new Giant. And do yourself a favor and read some Joel Salatin books before standing by assumptions about "cage free" eggs.
