Last week, in the second of a series of polls about what new types of establishments DC residents would like to see come to their area, UrbanTurf asked readers what sort of place should open up in Bloomingdale.

The results? The clear winner was a small grocery store, followed by the other food-related options that we offered as options.

Bloomingdale is in a bit of a food desert. Right now, residents can stock up at the farmer’s market, visit FieldtoCity — which has limited hours — or drive down to Safeway in Mount Vernon Square or Harris Teeter in NoMa. Union Market, which is about a mile away from the heart of the neighborhood, will eventually bring the larger vicinity a few more options, including a cheeserie, a bakery, and a meat shop, as well as tasty prepared foods like Korean tacos and empanadas.
