Green Valley Marketplace Opens Third Grocery Store at Padonia Village in Timonium
Approximately 125 employees to work in new anchor tenant of shopping center
Green Valley Marketplace, a family-owned supermarket chain that has operated locally since 1915, has opened its third location in the greater Baltimore metropolitan region within Padonia Village in the Timonium section of Baltimore County. The grocery store occupies the 31,256 square foot space formerly occupied by Mars Supermarkets and now serves as the primary anchor tenant for the shopping center owned and managed by CRC. Approximately 125 full and part-time employees will work at the new supermarket that joins existing locations in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties.
“We are extremely confident that the Green Valley Marketplace concept will resonate among consumers and business people in Baltimore County based on its emphasis on freshly-prepared and local foods, as well as its active involvement with the local community,” stated David Donato, Senior Vice President of Continental Realty Corporation. “Because they are locally owned and operated, with longstanding ties to Baltimore, they understand the importance of offering outstanding service and quality food products to build customer loyalty. Green Valley Marketplace represents the perfect anchor to Padonia Village because they differentiate the center from the local competition.”
Locally owned by B. Green & Company, based in Baltimore, the company operated predominately as a food wholesaler before expanding into the retail supermarkets category in the 1970s. The company operates two Cash & Carry business-to-business wholesale operations in the local region; and Food Depot, with two locations in Baltimore City. The Green Valley Marketplace concept was established in 2011 with the first store opening in Elkridge and a second in Arnold in 2015.
Specialty departments within Green Valley Marketplace include The Green Valley Seafood House featuring live and steamed crabs in-season; store-made crab cakes and fresh fish; Kitchen Fresh Deli and Prepared Foods including signature chicken salad, cole slaw, seafood salad and sliced deli; The Butcher Shop with fresh beef and sausage, Certified Angus beef, Bell & Evans chicken and Chairman’s Reserve pork products; and Hissho Sushi, featuring poke bowl and store-made sushi. Green Valley Marketplace will also include store-fried chicken and a variety of chicken wings; and fresh-to-go meals from their Meals Made Easy and Ready Chef Go signature lines. A holistic nutritionist will also be available to provide guidance on their large variety of gluten-free, organic and “free from” and natural product lines. In addition, in-store butchers can also custom cut and give assistance to customers.
The store also features a Zeke’s Coffee that, in addition to selling specialty hot and cold beverages, will also sell store-made pastries, sandwiches and soups within its 400-foot space. Located adjacent to the cafe is a sit-down area that can accommodate up to 16 people
Throughout the year, the supermarket will sponsor community-centric special events in the parking lot or in-store, such as Farmer’s Markets, Bake Sales or other activities that directly benefit a designated organization, school or community group.
