Whole Foods will bring a monthly, fresh food market to the St. Elizabeth’s pavilion beginning April 5 to serve the Anacostia and Congress Heights neighborhoods, Mayor Gray announced on Wednesday morning. All of the proceeds from the market will be donated to area organizations. The Washington Post was the first to report the plans for the pop-up.
Whole Foods is in the middle of an aggressive expansion in DC, where its stores are often seen as harbingers of high-end development. One store is slated to deliver on H Street around 2016; another is planned for Navy Yard.
The pop-up market will take place on a new pavilion at St. Elizabeth’s. Its purpose is to drum up interest in redeveloping the site with retail, commercial and residential uses. In addition to food, the retailer will also provide nutritional information and help with meal planning.
