Stella’s Market is officially open for business in Scott’s Addition, right next door to Vasen Brewing Company in the Handcraft Building. The new grocery and café is not just bigger than its original location on Lafayette Street, it offers a little more.
We did a quick walk through and said hello to everyone on opening day (Thursday April 12, 2018). When walking in from Moore St. you’ll immediately see a coffee/espresso bar along with a small cooler of to-go salads in a cup. On the opposite side, a wall of coolers with different beverages, including milk – in case you just need to grab a quick half-gallon and don’t want to run to a big grocery store.
Like Lafayette St., there are also several coolers of prepared foods and salads; Everything from sandwiches and shish-kabobs to salmon and salads. All of it looks amazing making it hard to decide what to get.
I’m told there will soon be a hot bar, in case you want to eat your meal there. And there are plenty of seats both inside and out on the patio.
In addition, there are bottles of wine for sale near the Roseneath entrance, a candy station for kids and plenty of gifts. Whether you just need a card, or a knick-knack or even some Stella’s swag, there are several options to please any recipient.
And the hours they’ll be open are pretty awesome too. (Especially if you live or work in Scott’s Addition.) Visit Stella’s Monday-Wednesday 8am-9pm. Thursday-Saturday 8am-10pm and Sunday 8am-8pm.
