A new grocery store will open in northeast Oklahoma City, giving neighbors new access to fresh food options.
The Market at Eastpoint officially opens at 9 a.m. Wednesday, off Northeast 23rd Street near North Martin Luther King Avenue.
The grocery store will give the community an option for fresh produce for the first time in nearly two years.
The shelves are stocked with farm-to-market fruit and vegetable options. The store itself is operated by the nonprofit Restore OKC but will get operational help from Homeland.
"We pay Homeland to operate, bring in the grocery expertise," said Executive Director for Restore OKC Caylee Dodson. 'But we've been able to do some really creative things, subsidize certain categories of food."
Restore OKC said both the inside and outside of the building have small details which emphasize the legacy of Northeast OKC.
The Market at Eastpoint will be open seven days a week. On Monday through Saturday, the store will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday it will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Eastside Eatery, a place where people can also order fully prepared meals inside the grocery store, will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Douglass High School band will be playing at Wednesday's grand opening.
