A new food market has opened quietly in the East Crossroads at 18th and Holmes, attracted by the steady traffic, new residents moving into the area and the proximity to Hospital Hill.

The Crossroads Market models its 2,000-item product mix after chains like Whole Foods and Sprouts, and includes fresh produce, meats, juices, frozen foods, dairy, household cleaning goods, health products, and plans to introduce beer, wine and spirits.

We provide, local, natural and organic products,” a spokesman said.

The 3,000 square-foot store at 640 E. 18th St. began operations recently without fanfare and is planning a grand opening March 20.

Hours haven’t been finalized, but the operator would like to be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or 9 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays, with limited hours on Sunday.

The Crossroads Market is the latest addition to a growing residential community with the opening of Artistry KC apartments, restaurants and microbreweries.
