Bump ‘n Grind Marks First Anniversary of Analog Market

Coffee shop and roaster Bump ‘n Grind is marking the first anniversary of its Analog Market at 923 Gist Ave. in downtown Silver Spring.

After hosting a series of pop-up markets, owner David Fogel acquired the space last year, with plans to transform the building into what he called a “one-of-a-kind third space”, including an outdoor garden, indoor coffee house/restaurant, vinyl/piano bar, and back patio.

Analog Market showcases small businesses that offer their vinyl records, books, maker creations, found art, curated vintage clothes racks, and more, Fogel wrote on the shop’s Liner Notes blog:

“Analog Market is more than a location to drink fresh-brewed Bump ‘n Grind Coffee, but a place to create, imagine, and indulge in your curiosities.”

Fogel also notes the milestone of curating 52 weekends of music programming, along with its B ‘n G Wax record shop and live performance space. “This could only have been achieved by welcoming a range of music lovers to come [to] share their latest discoveries. We are regularly posting many of our vinyl-only DJ sessions on the B ‘n G Mixcloud and Soundcloud pages, so the magic can be enjoyed again and again.”

Fogel looks to expand the Analog Market’s footprint expand its café and bar offerings, as well as hosting space for makers and musicians. “The plan for the location is to cement Bump ‘n Grind in downtown Silver Spring, expanding our physical footprint to become a full-fledged cafe and bar concept. With our brand pillars, “Coffee. Music. Community.” at the forefront, we envision a third space that offers a multidimensional maker space, engaging music programming, and exciting food and beverage offerings,” Fogel wrote.

Analog Market is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
