Blue Hills Market Set To Relocate, Expand

ABINGDON, Va. — Blue Hills Natural Food Market has expanded to become the anchor business for the new Abingdon Commons, an artisan food center scheduled to open in September on West Main Street, bringing to customers local, natural and hand-crafted foods and a shopping experience that focuses on community.

In anticipation of the move, which has dramatically expanded the store’s inventory, the health food store devoted to a healthy community has changed its name to Blue Hills Community Market. The store has augmented its popular food sections, including much larger local produce and meats sections. The new store also has introduced a greater selection of bulk foods, herbs and regionally canned food items as well as a greater variety of gourmet food selections.

“Blue Hills Community Market offers a shopping experience like none other in this region,” said Dirk Moore, store owner. “Grocery shoppers will have access to unique food items that enhance their health as well as their culinary life while shopping in a beautiful location dedicated to community health and engagement.”

As the anchor store of Abingdon Commons, Blue Hills Community Market will join six other food and beverage retailers under the roof of a newly remodeled commercial space once known as the Carter Bank. In addition to anatural foods market focused on local, regional and artisan food products, Abingdon Commons will include a farm-to-table café, a bakery specializing in breads, a deli with a charcuterie and wine bar, and a coffee station featuring gelato.

The food center also will highlight local ciders at an indoor-outdoor location that will include dining options intended to complement the ciders and the social atmosphere in which it will operate.

“Blue Hills Community Market believes that healthy communities come from healthy people,” Moore said. “Through this expansion, Blue Hills Community Market will help to engage a larger portion of the community in food choices that will enrich their lives and allow them to contribute more to the lives of those around them.”

Blue Hills Community Market and Abingdon Commons, which will be located next to the Abingdon Farmers Market, will seek to support farmers and other businesses by attracting more people to West Main Street and by offering an “After Market” program that features the unsold produce of farmers market vendors.

“We believe in customer experience and we believe in community,” according to Doug Ellington, the chief investor in the Abingdon Commons. “Abingdon Commons seeks to be a highly enjoyable and welcoming environment that reminds people of what they love about central Appalachia.”
