Hopefully this is some bright news for your day! I know it was for me.
If you grew up in Richmond like me, you will be very familiar with Ukrop's. Even those their stores closed a few years ago, we still have access to some of their signature foods like Rainbow Cookies, White House Rolls, and mac n' cheese through Ukrop's Homestyle Foods which can be found a various retailers around town.
However, the brand announced they would be opening a food hall in Henrico where fans can purchase their other signature dishes like fried chicken, meatloaf, and more!
Today Ukrop's Homestyle Foods shared some of the first images of the new food hall on Facebook! Renovations are underway and the Market Hall should open sometime in the late fall of this year! It will be located at the corrner of Horsepen and Patterson.
The Ukrop's Market Hall won't be a traditional grocery store, but rather a place where people can enjoy the Ukrop's food they know and love. In a statement released in 2019, the company said, “It will also be a location where we can be innovative and creative, introducing and testing new foods.”
I don't know about you, but I am HYPED! Their breakfast pizza was my jam!
