A peek inside Tangletown’s new 56th Street Market

What do you think? (7 Comments) January 26, 2011 at 3:17PM

The new 56th Street Market opened today (Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2011) in the spot formerly occupied by Meridian Market at 2201 N 56th St.

The market opened its doors at 11:30 a.m. and, by the time I visited at 2:30 p.m., had already been visited by many curious neighbors.

Here’s a look at what is already available in the market. ¬†Coming soon are magazines and newspapers (The New York Times, The Seattle Times, USA TODAY, and The Wall Street Journal), Bob’s Red Mill products, local produce, and Sunrise greeting cards.

    From the pictures it looks much nicer than expected. Hoping to visit soon.

    Do they have a seating area, like Meridian Market did?

    I can confirm dog biscuits. My dog was an enthusiastic early customer.

    I went last night to check it out. Unfortunately, I was a quite disappointed. It feels more like a 7Eleven than a neighborhood grocer.
    Maybe it will evolve over time but for me, it doesn’t reflect what I feel is the ethos of my neighborhood.

    Good to see the place being used in a practical way. Let’s not put on airs. The neighborhood needs a place to grab milk and other basics, and this will fill the bill.

    Personally I think there is too much of the store space stocked with things most of the neighborhood doesn’t buy on a daily basis. Kids will like it, there is lots ‘o candy, like Halloween every day of the year. And, one could just about drown in amidst all the non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverage choices. Yes, some choice is good, but the choice currently is overwhelming.

    I would like to see more things to eat and more ingredients to use for preparing quick, simple meals.

    I would much prefer a store I want to go to on a regular basis because of the product mix, rather than a store that is an afterthought because they might have something I’ve run out of.
