Opening week produce at Two Bits Market

The shelves aren't entirely stocked yet, but the doors to Two Bits Market are open this week as the organic-focused market starts to serve up produce, wines and cheese to the Historic Core.

A January 1 soft-opened was announced Friday on the market's Facebook page, and owner Brandi Lozano has been pleased with the results of the first few days.

Corbett Miller, one of two business partners in the project, is in charge of sourcing the market's offerings. He and Lozano both noted that mastering the daily crisping process needed to keep the arugula fresh has been their biggest challenge of the first few days.

Sandwich service is planned to start with a grand opening on February 1, and the shop is using the first few weeks to solicit ideas from shoppers on what should be on the market shelves.

Hours are still fluid, but this week the market will be open 10am to 10pm. Two Bits is located at 210 W. 5th, on the 5th Street side of the Alexandria Hotel.
