I find Trader Joes to be a tad overrated (minus their cheap wine and some of the frozen selections) but wouldn't be surprised though if they move into College Park or Hyattsville soon- isn't Whole Foods going into Riverdale Park? Seems like a lot of development going in around there.

It looks like Aldi's is moving into the development at Fort Totten by 2021.

Whole Foods has been open in Riverdale Park for almost 2 years. I agree that Trader Joes is overrated. I'm still not sure why they are marketing pretty uninspiring food products to only certain demographics.

Most of their food is processed. They would clean up near universities as most students live off of microwaved food.

Yep. Which isn't a bad choice.

Remember that Aldi and Trader Joe's are owned by sister (uhh, brother) companies, the twin Aldis of Germany.

A preview of the Meow Wolf museum planned for Art Place Fort Totten:

The full film is showing this weekend at the National Building Museum as part of a film festival. Combined with a neighboring children's museum, this is going to be a terrific destination for families. (That children's museum has a small interactive exhibit in the southeast corner of the Portrait Gallery that's worth a look if you're trying to keep a kid entertained downtown.)
