While one neighborhood market faces an uncertain future, another looks to expand its offerings. Sara’s Market on Q and 30th is applying for a special exception to allow them to set up a dry cleaning drop-off and pick-up establishment.

As reported here and by Carol Joynt, the building that houses Scheele’s Market at Dumbarton and 29th is up for sale for $1.2 million. The market has been run by the Lee family for over 20 years although the building is still owned by the original Scheele family.
The market is critical to the East Village. Without it, the neighborhood residents would lose the convenience of being only steps away from a loaf of bread and a bottle of milk. And more than offering convenience, Scheele’s is the emotional heart of that part of our neighborhood.
