The first Whole Food organic market in Prince George’s county is coming just south of College Park, in Riverdale Park.

The site is located on Baltimore Avenue (Route 1) between East-West Highway and Albion Road in Riverdale Park, Maryland. Bounded on the west by Baltimore Avenue, Route 1 is the site’s primary street frontage and a major north-south thoroughfare in Prince George’s County. The site is bounded on the north by Albion Street, on the south by a U.S. Postal Service facility and on the east by CSX railroad tracks.

The store will be built on the Cafritz Property (see the map).

There have been some concerns for the increase of traffic on already congested Route 1 due to the development.

Residents and elected officials alike will got a chance to learn more about the development proposed for the Cafritz Property off Baltimore Avenue in Riverdale Park last night. Representatives of the property and developers presented their ideas to University Park’s council.

The store could be open as early as fall 2014.
