A Union Market East of the River?

Benning Road’s River Terrace neighborhood in Northeast may get a slightly smaller version of Union Market. Neighborhood Development Corporation, a local developer with a great track record of successful projects, is planning the 11,200 sq. ft. Benning Market at 3451 Benning Road, NE.

The old site at 3451 Benning Road, NE.

Their plan is to outfit Benning Market with a variety of food stalls and a brewery or co-working space. Neighborhood Development Corporation raised over $250,000 using crowdfunding as a means to kickoff the project. The site, a former U-Haul location, is currently home of neighborhood events like the Market 7 Flea Market.

Benning Market has a tentative Fall 2018 opening date. There’s a real need for this type of venue here – the area has become a destination for middle-class homebuyers and investors looking to buy in DC for a little less than other NW and NE options. This is a big step toward fixing the food desert that exists east of the Anacostia River.
