Fresh Food is Coming to Indian Head
New Community Grocery Store Opening in 2023
For years, Indian Head has been hungry for a grocery store of its own. Our town is a certified food desert amid the thriving D.C. suburbs.
Those days are ending soon.
Oasis Fresh Foods Market and Papaleo’s Ice Cream are coming to the historic and soon-to-be renovated Algonquin Building just outside the base.
An Oasis in Our Food Desert
Nearly 23 years after Indian Head’s last grocery store closed its doors, here is what you can expect from Oasis Fresh Foods Market.
Fresh, Affordable Fruits and Vegetables
Delicious Meats and Seafood
All Your Supermarket Staples
Locally Sourced Prepared Foods
A Locally Owned, Community-Oriented Enterprise
Top Off Your Visit with Ice Cream
Papaleo’s Ice Cream will share space with Oasis Fresh Foods Market in the Algonquin Building.
At Papaleo’s, we’ll treat you to a selection of delicious soft-serve ice cream, plus the opportunity to take-home containers of premium small-batch ice cream from Baltimore’s Taharka Brothers.
Talk about sweetening the deal!
Oasis Fresh Foods Market and Papaleo’s Ice Cream will soon fill the vacant first floor of the Algonquin Building.
Locally Owned and Locally Operated
Oasis Fresh Foods Market and Papaleo’s Ice Cream have been created to add value to the town of Indian Head and our surrounding areas. That includes adding job opportunities for ambitious local residents.
Be sure to sign up for email updates and watch this website because we’ll be posting available jobs here as we get closer to opening our doors!
