Kitchen startup adds dash of retail

A Midlothian commercial kitchen startup is adding a market to help drive traffic to its storefront.

Source Kitchens Studios at 13566 Waterford Place is opening a 500-square-foot market on Nov. 20 to front the two commercial kitchen spaces it rents out to fledgling food business operators.

The market will retail and consign locally made jellies, soaps, baked goods and honey and will have a coffee bar. The shop will also sell glassware that co-owner Ann Butler described as “stuff you would buy but don’t really need.”

Butler and Justin Thomas have operated the commercial kitchen spaces at the Waterford Shopping Center since May after taking over a previous kitchen leasing operation called Relish the Kitchen.
