Ellwood Thompson's is a very successful, evironmentally conscience natural market based in Richmond, Virginia. CEO and founder Ryan Youngman would love to bring his natural market concept to Columbia Heights. Youngman feels that the DC USA retail complex would be the perfect fit. Show your support for bringing Ellwood Thompson's to Columbia Heights here.
We just received an update from Ryan Youngman, CEO of Ellwood Thompson's Local Market, concerning his company's interest in the DC USA location.
Ellwood Thompson's has been overwhelmed with support from Columbia Heights residents as well as others in DC's other outstanding communities. Thank you all very much! An update in our search is that we are currently very interested in the DC USA development nearing completion on 14th Ave. We encourage any support that the neighborhood's interested residents can provide??
We would like to explain our store concept a little clearer since there have been a lot of comparisons to other Natural Markets in the area. Ellwood Thompson's is a full-service Natural/Organic Market that does not sell any products that contain artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Our products contain no hydrogenated oils, parabens, high fructose corn syrup or transfats.
The store is approximately 15,000 SF and we're stewards of local farming and merchants (often working directly with the farm). Quality is top priority and sampling is encouraged. We have a full-service meat case (free-range varieties) as well as a deli case/hot bar and a health and beauty section. I hope this information is helpful in providing a snapshot of what Ellwood's has to offer Columbia Heights. For additional information, please visit our soon-to-be redesigned website at http://www.ellwoodthompsons.com.
Ryan Youngman CEO,
Again, we encourage you to continuing writing CEO Ryan Youngman to voice your support for an Ellwood Thompson's location at DC USA and urging others to do as well. Again his email is:
We will keep you posted on this exciting development as we get more word.

It grew from a tiny city market to a mainstay in the city's west end that even the major grocery chains couldn't touch. It is THE place to get natural foods in Richmond. Similar to Whole Foods, but smaller and more accessible.
