Gypsy Market was a neighborhood convenience store which opened in 2008 at 2301 2nd Avenue North. In addition to grocery staples, the store offered packaged meals and deli meats, gourmet beverages and chocolates, and other treats tailored for the Loft district market. It was owned by Kent Griggs, who remodeled the rear of the store for his residence.

The store closed in January 2010.
