Not your average corner mart, Union Kitchen Grocery opens shop today at 3rd + F St NE to make special, locally-made products a part of the every day convenience store! I’m pretty excited for the newest addition to the neighborhood, I do my big grocery shopping on the weekend but during the week I go to corner markets for little things like Diet Coke or pick up a sandwich and soup for those nights when the last time I want to do after work is cook dinner + do dishes.
Enter Union Kitchen to save the day! Open every day from 8AM to 9PM, Union Kitchen Grocery has a mix of locally made products and your every day corner store items like Diet Coke, peanut butter + paper towels. You can also grab a coffee and a quick bite from the deli to eat inside or out on their patio.
I can’t wait to try out some of the locally made items like…
Bloody Mary Mix? Sign me up! And Glover’s Pepper Sauce (red sauce on the right), I’m comin’ for ya. And while I’m there, I’ll pick up a bag of popcorn from The Popcorn Queens (a Union Kitchen favorite of mine) and a sweet treat from Cakelove. What can I say? I love my sweets!
I think it’s safe to say I’ll be popping into Union Kitchen Grocery during the week, even just to check out the awesome local products they carry and admire the awesome detailing in the tin ceiling.
And if I happen to walk out with some ice cream and a chai, we’ll just roll with it. Yes or yes?
