Libbie Market was founded in 2010 after the Ukrop’s grocery store chain was purchased by Ahold-‐Martin’s and the small specialty store known as Joe’s Market was set to close. A groundswell movement began by Richmonders who wanted to save the market. Buster Wright and David Taylor, both who were employees of Ukrop’s, decided to buy the market. Soon after the agreement was made, the organizers of the “Save Joe’s Market” campaign held a party to celebrate the preservation of this Richmond tradition. The store was given a new name and was transformed into a full scale grocery store. Libbie Market remains a favorite spot for customers to shop, dine and enjoy all the offerings of a large grocery store with the convenience of an upscale neighborhood market.
