Urban Farmhouse is opening their fifth location at 800 West Broad Street near Virginia Commonwealth University’s Monroe Park campus.

Richmond Bizsense covered the great news:

Kathleen Richardson, owner, has a 10-year lease for a 1,381 square-foot space on the Broad Street property’s first floor. Kathleen says that she hopes to open the new store before the end of VCU’s spring semester.

“I think we resonate with sort of that college crowd,” Kathleen said. “They’re really on the forefront of eating local and sustainably grown and all the things we stand for.”

And as has been the case each time she opens a new location, Kathleen said another Urban Farmhouse is already in the works.

“Shortly it will be in another up-and-coming area in Richmond,” she said.

Congratulations on the new location and the great mention in Richmond BizSense, Kathleen!
