Pop-Up Shops Return to Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Station

After a seven-week trial in spring, the pop-up vendor plaza has returned to Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Station. Shops have been created by carving a former Metro 4000 series railcar into sections.

Commuters and neighbors can stop and shop from several local retailers from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The pop-up plaza will last through Oct. 27, and vendors will offer freshly baked breads, fully prepared dinners, fabulous desserts and locally roasted pour-over coffee.

Some vendors are returning from the spring trial: Borekg Turkish Bakery, Galley Foods, Great Harvest Bread Co., Millie’s International Creations, The Red Bandana Bakery and Yoga in a Bowl. And some vendors are new: BeAdmired, Creative Arts, FRESHBLEND Juices, Mayorga Organics and Spring Mill Bread Co.

Local artists and Strathmore Artists-in-Residence will provide free, live musical performances from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The acts are:

  • Chuck Holden International Jazz Vocalist (Wednesday, Oct. 11)
  • The Ladies of the Outskirts (Thursday, Oct. 12)
  • Herb and Hanson (Friday, Oct. 13)
  • Bliss the Electric (Wednesday, Oct. 18)
  • Wytold (Friday, Oct. 20)
  • 29 & Georgia (Wednesday, Oct. 25)
  • Charles E Smith Jewish Day School Chorus (Thursday, Oct. 26)
  • Be Steadwell (Friday, Oct. 27)

Three special weekend events are scheduled in October:

  • Family Arts & Chalk Festival (Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) – Bring the kids to create chalk art, make wind charms, challenge each other in giant Jenga, browse selections from Tutu’s Storybooks, and support Melwood by buying your fall mums.
  • Movie at the Metro (Saturday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m. arrival) – Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and coolers, and we’ll provide the free popcorn as you watch the 3D fantasy comedy, “Hotel Transylvania.”
  • Bike Connectivity Day (Saturday, Oct. 28, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) – With bike-share options and dedicated lanes, many commuters are opting for two-wheels instead of four. We’re offering hands-on tutorials to show you how easy it is to bike one way, then put your cycle on the bus, plus demonstrations for quick fixes and easy roadside repairs.
