Market Street Wineshops

311 E. Market St.
305 Rivanna Plaza
Dr., Suite 102

Trader Joe’s
Stonefield Shopping Center

For nearly 30 years, Market Street Wineshops have served as not only the best place to buy wine (there’s more than 1,200 wines in stock), but also to learn about it, through weekly tastings, newsletters, and occasional events led by owner Robert Harllee. As for newbie (to Charlottesville and to this category, that is) Trader Joe’s, you really can’t beat a bottle of two-buck Chuck (which is actually three-buck Chuck these days, but who’s counting?) when you’re looking for a buzz on the cheap.
