East of the River Food Hall, With Grocery Component, to Break Ground Next Week
Benning Market, the first multi-vendor market east of the Anacostia River, will move forward this month. Neighborhood Development Company plans to break ground on the Union Market-style project next Tuesday; the market is expected to be ready for tenant move-ins in fall of 2020.
Located at 3451 Benning Road NE (map) in River Terrace, Benning Market will span roughly 14,000 square feet across two levels. It will include a community grocery store, one of several efforts this year to address food access inequities in Wards 7 and 8.

The market is expected to have up to 10 vendors, including restaurants, along with a central bar and community seating. While not all tenants have been identified, offerings are expected to include home goods and other essentials in addition to food and beverage services.
Anchor tenant Market 7 will operate the lower level of the space, including administering the grocery store; the organization has hosted pop-ups in Ward 7 over the past two years with over 60 vendors. It is a community-based startup founded by Ward 7 resident Mary Blackford to unite and champion local and Black businesses.
