It was just last week that GM was passing on the news of the closing of Le Petite Corner Store, the neighborhood market at 34th and Dent. But good news is already on the horizon: a new market will open in its place. It will be called Dent Place Market and it is targeting a late February opening.
Here is what it is promising:
The market is located in historical Georgetown on the corner of Dent Place and 34th Street. Dent Place Market wants to honor the spirit of Georgetown while redefining what a neighborhood market sells. Great wine, local craft beer, innovative snacks, fresh pastries, Bullfrog Bagels, and Compass coffee is just a start to what you’ll find at Dent Place.
Coming soon in February 2019!
REPEAT: BULLFROG BAGELS. If you are familiar with this local bagel provider, you will understand GM’s excitement. If not, you really must seek them out. They are absolutely delicious.
GM has long wondered why there are no bagel shops in Georgetown anymore (RIP: Georgetown Bagels). They could practically print money if they were halfway decent. And Bullfrog is ten times better than that.
The new market owners are gutting the space and refreshing the market. And as great as bagels are, if Dent Place Market is to join Sheele’s and Sara’s as bedrock neighborhood markets, it will have to provide a wide array of items too. Fingers crossed.
