Crown Hill Metropolitan Market opens today

The new Metropolitan Market on Crown Hill (8532 15th Ave NW) opens its doors today.

The new grocery store has been a long time coming; we first reported on their plans to move into the former Value Village in April 2021. Now, over two years later, the store is officially open.

The Crown Hill store is Met Market’s 10th location. “Food is about bringing people together, facilitating meaningful relationships, and feeding long-lasting memories,” Metropolitan Market CEO, Ron Megahan, said about the opening. “We are absolutely thrilled to be joining the Crown Hill community and we look forward to meeting our new neighbors soon.”

Crown Hill Met Market will have all the trappings of the high-end grocery store from its fresh-baked bread to made-to-order items and a floral shop. They’ll serve their “prime rib sandwich, mojo Caribbean pork sandwich, in addition to ramen noodles, a daily variety of soups, salads, and hot bar entrees.” A few of their other menu items include Sichuan Tofu & Citrus Bowl, Northwest Smokehouse Salmon Bowl, and the Power Bowl.

The wine and beer department is pretty extensive and has over 1,200 wines, beers, and spirits.

The bakery will have specialty cakes, local pies, and “The Cookie”—baked fresh and served warm all day.

There’s also an in-store cafe serving Caffé Vita coffee.

The Crown Hill location also has a Kitchen Shop with housewares, kitchen tools, cutlery, linens, candles, and cookbooks.

There’s also a wellness department with supplements, cosmetics, and aromatherapy.

Crown Hill Metropolitan Market is open 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
