Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It is with a heavy heart that we share our decision to close our Lovejoy Basics Market on Saturday, Nov. 5th. We were forced to make this difficult decision due to ongoing security and theft issues, compromising the overall safety of our team.
We have enjoyed being your neighborhood grocer, and send our appreciation to our loyal customers and very cute dog friends, but the time has come to close our doors completely.
We are sad that this location in the Pearl District didn’t work out as planned, but hope you will visit us at our other full grocery retail locations in Hillsdale and Aloha.
Thank you for shopping with us.Closing FAQs Get Directions

Cheese, Dairy & Eggs
You’ll find a small, but high quality selection of organic milk and cheeses from Lulubelle’s Creamery, our own line of organic dairy products from our own cows, bottled at our own creameries and distributed by us directly to all of our Basics Markets. Try our good old fashioned Cream on Top Whole Milk, High Protein Ultra-filtered Milk, and our creamy small batch cheeses
Among our selection of cheeses, you’ll find our own Willamette Valley Cheese Company, located in the heart of Willamette Valley wine country. We use traditional old-world methods to produce hand-crafted, delicious artisan cheeses that are certified organic. Try the Aged Cheddars or the buttery French Prairie Brie.
A customer favorite, we feature Gwendolyn’s Organic local eggs by the dozen from our own laying hens in Aurora. Our hens enjoy an all organic diet with vegetarian feed, and plenty of access to pasture, just like the old days.
Lovejoy Market Manager
Katie Eshleman is a calm, super organized multi-tasker with many passions. In grocery for over 26 years, her experience as an exchange student in Belgium propelled her into food – particularly her love for all things cheese (she can identify a cheese by look and taste alone!) She loves connecting people through food, and has found that grocery is a great vehicle for that. Basics Lovejoy holds a special place in her heart. Katie’s hobbies include camping and flyfishing with her wife, and gardening (she has her own greenhouse).
