New grocery store in Bessemer

Urban Market open in Bessemer

BESSEMER, Ala. (WBRC) - Neighbors are excited about a new grocery store in Bessemer.

Urban Market had its grand opening Thursday on 9th Street at Hall Avenue.

The market is locally-owned, female-owned and minority-owned.

The area is a federally designated food desert which means it’s an area where it’s hard to find quality, fresh food.
