2016 FOOD FOCUS

The CDA is promoting its specialty food markets to area cooks in 2016 to broaden awareness of the authentic ingredients available in the Crossroads from Asia, India, Afro-Caribbean, Middle East, and Europe. Large ads are carried on 30 UMD shuttlebuses, visible to thousands of international students, faculty and staff. A February mailer to 10,000 area households advertised the Crossroads specialty markets and authentic ingredients. In March, ads promoting CDA specialty food markets were displayed in 13 Clear Channel bus shelters, where they'll remain for the next three months.

The Takoma/Langley Crossroads Development Authority, Inc. (CDA) is a unique 501(c)(6) business association organized in 1987 to market and promote the Takoma/Langley Commercial Management District, provide security, maintenance and amenities in the diverse, international Takoma/Langley Crossroads commercial area at the border of Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. The CDA is located in the City of Takoma Park, in Montgomery County, Maryland.

The Crossroads takes its name from the major intersection of state highways at its core, New Hampshire Avenue (MD650) and University Boulevard (MD193).  It grew into a regional shopping destination in the 1950s and 1960s, with large shopping centers on each corner and several office buildings.   Today, the Crossroads has an array of independent and chain businesses, along with professionals, that serve local residents as well as customers from throughout the region who seek international goods and services.  A number of stores carry products sought by African immigrants such as Halal meat (Halal Meat & Grocery), root vegetables and greens (Red Apple Farmers Market), fabrics, music, and films (Patrick International), herbs, and more.  Other stores carry West Indian products such as The Caribbean Market, or serve Caribbean food (Carribean Palace).  Business owners and professionals in the Crossroads represent dozens of nations including Iran, Lebanon, Pakistan, Chile, Guyana, Nigeria, Antigua, Ecuador, Israel, El Salvador, China, Viet Nam, Guatemala, Korea, India, Ethiopia, and beyond.

Half of the Crossroads lies in Langley Park (Hyattsville) in Prince George’s County.  The CDA represents Takoma Park businesses and properties and is the City's largest commercial center with over 350,000 square feet of retail, office and professional space.  Takoma Park is deeply committed to economic development in the Crossroads, and encouraging a mix of businesses and services that serve all of its residents.  The new Takoma/Langley Crossroads Transit Center will open in early 2016 providing a safe sheltered bus station for commuters with public restrooms shown on the photo (top right).  A future Purple Line station will be located on University Boulevard next to the Transit Center, connecting the Crossroads to New Carrollton and Bethesda, in addition to four Metrorail stations.
