Grove Corner Market open for business in West Asheville

After losing its lease in downtown Asheville’s Grove Arcade last month, the Grove Corner Market wasted no time in setting up shop elsewhere. The grocery, which has kept its name, opened its doors June 3 at 771 Haywood Road in West Asheville (which formerly housed the Haywood Road Market).

Co-owner Rosanne Kiely says the space, while slightly smaller than the Grove Arcade location, seems a good fit from the get-go. “I just feel like we’ve come home,” she says. “This feels right.”

Fans of the market will recognize much familiar fare along with some new offerings: more natural foods, more conventional items for those on a tight budget, staples sold in bulk, health-and-body products and nutritional supplements.

The market is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. The business will be making deliveries downtown every Tuesday.
