Looking for a grocer to suit your dry goods needs in Old Town? Mason & Greens will be opening its doors at 913 King Street this spring, but there’s a couple of catches — the store won’t accept cash and in the interest of sustainability you’ll have to bring your own bags and jars.
“We are living in a time where we can no longer kick the can down the road about taking care of our planet,” notes the Mason & Greens website. “Mason & Greens brings the community of Alexandria and its surrounding areas the ability to shop sans plastic. Sans disposable bags. Sans unnecessary waste. And knowing that your buying power is going to support companies who care about reducing waste we can start to combat the frivolous throw-away culture that has crept in all around us.
Just what exactly will Mason & Greens sell? That is still being ironed out, and the business is described on its Instagram account as a “boutique shop selling not so common goods that are oh so good for the planet.” It also touts itself as the D.C. area’s “first bulk
and zero waste shop.”
The brown paper is up! Mason and Greens is underway. We are so over the moon excited to be brining a shop of this nature to Old Town Alexandria! Zero waste, plastic free, and bulk bins OH MY!

The store will be located in a 2,300-square-foot Victorian town house, which was built in 1888 on land that was once owned by former U.S. Treasury Secretary Anthony Charles Cazenove. It’s situated between The Majestic restaurant and Misha’s Coffeehouse.
