Pope’s Market Where The Pope Would Shop

(I took this pic in March of last year)

Popes Market in Wakefield, VA. This building as always been shuttered since we moved to Wakefield in 2000. There used to be a Pepsi mural pained on the side of the building, but it was pained over a few weeks ago.

When I worked at a courtesy clerk at The Fresh Market, I was carrying out a couple’s grocery cart, and some reason I told them I lived in Wakefield and they started to tell me about the market they owned : Pope’s Market. I told them that the store was pracically in my backyard, and they instantly knew where I lived.
