The Queen Anne Historical Society dug deep into its archives to pull together a series of articles entitled “Remembering Queen Anne’s Neighborhood Grocery Stores” – in addition to finding them online at the Queen Anne Historical Society website, you can hear directly from the authors this Thursday, January 26th, at a free presentation that’s open to all.

The research done by the Queen Anne Historical Society covers a wide swath of grocery store history. From the turn of the 20th century with Augustine & Kyer (1908-1938) to the roaring 20s with Aasten’s Grocery (which had its own garden for super-fresh produce) to the more recent S&M Market which operated until 1989 (some residents may recall this grocery, it sat where Homegrown is today) – and even a Dick’s Drive-In predecessor, the Motor-In Market – the history of shopping on Queen Anne paints a rich picture of the past.

You can learn more about these lost pieces of history at Thursday’s meeting. The series authors, Jan Hadley and Alicia Arter, will provide a brief history of Queen Anne grocery shopping.

Here are the details:

When: 7pm, Thursday January 26th
Where: Aegis, 223 West Galer
Price: Free and open to the public

Mark your calendars for this Thursday for this free event that dives into the history or our neighborhood!
