First Place: Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market

Second Place: Libbie Market

Third Place: Little House Green Grocery

A Carytown institution, Elwood Thompson’s Local Market has been winning accolades for nearly 27 years for its high-quality products and service. It’s been a pioneer in Richmond’s foodie craze. “We try to go above and beyond in customer service,” manager Phil Saunders says. As the local market becomes topsy-turvy with the arrival of high-end grocers, Ellwood Thompson’s remains deeply rooted in the community. “Our customers feel like they are part of a family,” Saunders says. Besides trying out new food products, store managers will be trying out a new gardening section and perhaps branch out into farming. Libbie Market has a similar modus operandi in offering quality service and prepared foods to a loyal near West End crowd. Little House Green Grocery prides itself on its locally grown produce.
