Duckweed Urban Grocery, and the always sensational Farmacy Vegan Kitchen are readying to open in the bustling Westshore Marina District. The convenient, well-stocked store will take over a nearly 3,000-square-foot space and offer up ample vegan and keto-friendly fare, in addition to a wide array of essentials all shoppers need.

The urban grocer’s locations in some of Tampa’s most trafficked districts are amplified through its new Duck Dash Delivery app. That’s right, you can support your local grocery store from the comfort of home.

Duckweed Urban Grocery making a major expansion in Tampa

Duckweed’s Channelside store is located at 117 N 12th Street. Duckweed also has a shop in downtown Tampa at 803 North Tampa Street.

The launch of the Westshore Marina District location is part of a massive plan to elevate the concept:

“This is all part of the plan to grow the Duckweed brand and we are currently working on flagship locations at WestShore Marina District, with an interior that will elevate the design from the quirky urban look that defines the Channel District and Downtown Tampa storefronts, to a cleaner, more high-end look,” write the ownership team. “It will also include a liquor store that will offer residents of the surrounding communities an opportunity to purchase alcohol beyond beer and wine.”

Duckweed carries everything from light bites and snacks, to essentials like milk, eggs, sauces, oils, and fresh produce. The store also hosts Farmacy Vegan Kitchen.

Farmacy coming to Westshore Marina District

Farmacy’s donuts are an absolute revelation.

Those who are either vegan, gluten-free or both will rejoice with a glimpse at their menu. The Mediterranean salad is a quick, filling delight. Their sticky buns — gluten-free option available — offer a powerful punch of sweetness. They also bake myriad varieties of doughnuts with savory  toppings — fruit loops are our personal favorite.

Creamy cashew mac and cheese, fruit parfaits, smashed avocado toast, banana apple bread and so much more are being whipped up daily at Farmacy. Keep up with the 100% plant based business by visiting their website and following them on Facebook and Instagram.

A 52-acre destination to shop and dine in Tampa

The Westshore Marina District is a stunning new master-planned community overlooking one of the largest and most impressive yacht basins on Tampa Bay. Situated along 1.5 scenic miles of waterfront, green space, marina and open bay, this all-new, 52-acre destination presents a fresh, contemporary environment for water-inspired living, shopping, dining and recreation.

Duckweed & Farmacy will join Cru Cellars, Qwench Juice Bar, Crave Spa, Salon Color Bar, and Sand Surf Co. at Westshore.
