According to St. Pete Rising, Duckweed Urban Grocery will debut its new 2,200 square-foot Pinellas location inside of the Tru by Hilton hotel at 1650 Central Ave., adjacent to Lolita’s Wine Market, Dirty Laundry and Zaytoon Grill.
St. Pete's Duckweed grocery is slated to open by the end of this year.
Duckweed carries a wide variety of dry goods, from-scratch vegan food from The Farmacy, keto-friendly dishes, pet supplies, fresh produce, and a wide range of beverages. Its recently-opened Davis Islands storefront also sells beer and wine, in addition to housing a counter for local butcher The Boozy Pig.
The ‘Burg’s debut Duckweed will be its sixth location throughout the Bay area, with outposts in downtown Tampa, Channelside, Westshore and Davis Islands. SPR says that St. Pete’s urban grocery will also sell beer and wine, with “with liquor hopefully being added later.”
St. Pete’s Duckweed will join the new concept Noble Tavern—a culinary collaboration between Noble Crust and Fat Beet Farm—on the bottom floor of the Central Avenue hotel. When the restaurant was announced last summer, it was slated to open sometime in 2023, so we might be able to expect the concept to debut soon.
