Del. Joshua Cole addresses the crowd at Sunday’s ground-breaking ceremony.

The Fredericksburg Food Cooperative celebrated the start of its planned member-owned grocery store Sunday with a ground-breaking ceremony in front of the location.

Virginia Del. Joshua Cole, Fredericksburg Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw and some of the Co-op’s founding board members were among the speakers at Sunday’s event at 320 Jefferson Davis Highway in the Lee Plaza shopping center. The event was also streamed live online.

The Co-op has completed demo work in the space and expects to start construction within the next week or two. The store is likely to open in late 2020 or early 2021. The Co-op currently has approximately 1,527 members. Non-members will also be able to shop at the store.

Here is a look at the space currently. We are excited to see it transformed over the coming months!
