Grocery Stores in Petworth

Anchor retail makes Petworth a walkable community.

Being on the lookout for the ideal home in the best community for you has a lot to do with walkability. Grocery stores are one of what’s called “anchor retail” shopping amenities that make for a thriving, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. There are two relatively new grocery stores in Petworth that make it a very walkable community.

There’s a brand-new Safeway on Georgia Ave. that was completely remodeled. Previously nicknamed the “Stinky Safeway” back in 2011, the new store is anything but. Many see the store as the rebirth of the neighborhood, as we previously mentioned grocery stores (especially new ones) make a neighborhood flourish.

In addition to the Safeway there’s a new Avenue Market, lesser known but a mere half mile walk to from the Fort Totten Metro Station. The market sells all your essentials.

In addition to the two newer grocery stores, there has been one grocery store that has been in Petworth since 2009. If you eat organic, the store is the Yes! Organic Market, a family-owned local grocery chain founded in 1970 with fresh, natural and organic foods.

Petworth is becoming increasingly desirable due to large lot sizes for homes, walkability to the metro (which will in turn get you anywhere you need to be) and increasing retail around the Kennedy Street and Arts Place areas at the Fort Totten Metro. Just to give a brief idea, the average sales price in Petworth for quarter 1 in 2012 was $340,000. Five years later, the price was $544,000.
