Trader Joe's to Open Near Union Market

Screen Shot 2016-11-30 at 7.08.36 AM

We're getting the Trader Joe's that a lot of people have hoped for over the years. The new store will open at 1240 Fourth St. in the Florida Avenue Market, and very close to Union Market (1309 Fifth St.). According to the store's website they are hope to open in 2017.

I could not locate a copy of the press release, but the Washington Business Journal has more details, including that the Trader Joe's will go into the Edison Building (the address for the building has also been given as 340 Florida Ave., and it's on the corner of Florida and Fourth). That building will also have 187 residential units. The grocer will occupy 15,000 of the 30,000 square feet of available retail space at the site. Rebecca Cooper at WBJ also points out that this is just down the street from another large development that will feature a Latin market from chef Jose Garces.

This is great news for the neighborhood. I wish we could get a gym and more options for clothing and furniture stores.

Yeah, it's awesome, but isn't it a bit unnecessary? We haven't been a food desert for years, and yet there are still plenty of food deserts in this city :(

Do you know the status of the Trader Joe's that was planned for Eastern Market? Is that still happening?

I saw that announcement. It's linked to in the post, which also has the address for the store. I mentioned there have been two addresses used for the Edison project so it's less confusing if people go looking for further info.

Courtney,

The WBJ mentions the TJ's coming to Hines, so I would say it is still a go.

The Hine project site (http://www.hineschool.com/community-calendar/) lists delivery for June 2017.

Cool, more opportunities for locally-sourced sustainably-raised free-range artisanal frozen pad thai.
