Village People

Posted By on Wed, Dec 5, 2007 at 2:15 PM

Riverside Village, the burgeoning retail neighborhood in East Nashville, will add a new market to the mix when Mitchell Delicatessen opens next year. East Nashville resident David Mitchell, an alumnus of Wild Oats who currently works at Whole Foods' Grill at Green Hills, just signed a lease on the location next door to Sip Cafe. He plans to start building out the space in January in preparation for a spring launch.

Mitchell hopes to fill a void with healthy prepared foods in a neighborhood that has traditionally lacked such items. The deli-market will stock vegetables, meats, cheeses and to-go items and will have seating for 15 to 20 inside and more out back on a patio.

As part of an effort to focus on local foods, Mitchell is talking with local farmers about supplying meat and produce, and he hopes to create a farmers' market in the common courtyard behind the store. “It won't necessarily be upscale,” he says, “but a healthier approach and natural items.”

Mitchell wants to create a market that serves the community's needs, so he is asking people for ideas about products and local suppliers. Here's your chance to make a wish list.

Mitchell Delicatessen will be located at 1402 McGavock Pike.
