The Cafe and Market Are Open

Good Natured Market & Cafe As A Collective

Tuesday thru Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

In June of 2007 Jim and I opened the front door of 209 S Raleigh Street and in the 10 years since that day much has changed. This time around Jim is here only in spirit, so with my sons Jake and Calvin, India, Josh, & Ahmet we are looking forward to a re-invented market and cafe. Many new things are here – handmade candles from Berkeley Springs Twilight Candle Shop, Life With Dallas Vegan Popcorn from Hyattsville MD, True Foods Ketchup from D.C., Organic Forager Eggs from Bethlehem Farms in Winchester, Lenka Bars from D.C., Davidovich Bagels from New York, Authentic Foods Gluten Free Flour Blends, Berg Bites from D.C., incense from St John’s Botanicals in Bowie Maryland, Natural Value – the independent grocers signature organic brand, Wild Ophelia Chocolate, Little Northern Bakehouse Vegan/GF Bread, Biselli Pasta from West Virginia,  and McCutcheon products from Frederick Maryland. And that’s just in the beginning. We’re talking to many more local and innovative suppliers.

The menu will not be what you expect. Some old favorites are still here – our vegetarian reuben, our burgers, grilled cheese sammies, signature salads, and soups. Most of the entrees will be replaced by a new veggie mac ‘n’ cheese, grain and pasta salads, a dip sampler, and a few surprises.

And of course there is breakfast. We’ll have lattes, mochas, smoothies, eggs, and our newly inspired breakfast sausage along with everything bagels and spreads. Our counter-service breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m. Our counter-service lunch begins at 11:00 a.m.
