Old City Market and Oven is your convenient corner store carrying the finest in beers, wine, coffee, roasted meats, vegetables and baked goods fresh from our wood-fired oven. More than simply a corner convenience store, we carry a wide variety of goods and items from vintage jazz and pop records to house plants, check out our own line of organic and all-natural bath soaps and art from local artists. All of the food that is prepared in our market is cooked the old fashioned way: with fire in caves, just the way your great, great, great, great . . . grandparents did ten thousand years ago. Come to the Market and see our cave: a huge six-foot diameter stone oven. In the morning, you will see our cooks pulling out fresh-baked quiches, cookies, or pies, and later in the day they will be roasting meats and vegetables. Then when you are on your way home from work, we will fire that baby up to over 700 degrees and start cooking some of the best pizzas you will find in this City!

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Excellent customer service and tasty food
The nicest staff, delicious pizza and grilled wings!
Nice wine selection
Very friendly staff! Lots of variety.
Small store but great employees, very friendly
This is a cozy shop that serves soup, sandwiches, and pizza and sells an eclectic array of gourmet food and boutique gifts. There are tables for dining in even though most regulars seemed to order carryout. This store is on a residential street which makes it a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the H street corridor.
The American pizza is incredible. Gonna stop by there tomorrow morning for a breakfast panini. Their beer selection is also great and Elsa expensive than most places.
A very welcoming atmosphere with a variety of groceries, gifts and some of the best pizza you'll ever have! There was even a musical act performing downstairs. I will definitely be back!
First time at Old City Market and Oven. The take and bake food was excellent and the wine was excellent for the modest price, will definitely be coming back!
They are amazing!
Great ingredients, friendly staff
Interesting food/ drink items.
really good sandwich
Hole in the wall place in a cute residential neighborhood. The food was delicious and the owner took the time and care to make me a special dessert on the House because I’d arrived earlier than the kitchen was scheduled to open and, therefore, had to wait a bit longer than usual. It’s not quite convenient if you’re not in the area, but if I’m ever there, I would opt to go there over any nearby chain store
Great selection of goods and food menu items
Love it!! Pizza and staff are great
Such a cool place! I will definitely be back. My veggie burger was amazing, but the space itself was even better—the basement was so cool!
I bought a greatPinotage using the E-Gift card. Every staff member at this adorable little market was charming and helpful. The atmosphere, the products/food - were exactly what I needed. Thank you. I’m coming back. 😃

The food was great!!! I ordered more than I expected and I also got dinner for later on.
Received a NIFT giftcard for this restaurant and called to place my order in. On the phone I was greeted by a friendly voice and recognized it when I picked up my veggie tacos (YUMMY). (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) He offered me a sample of banana bread and showed me the other desserts. I enjoyed the small mom and pop shop feel & awesome customer service. I will definitely come again.
Friendly staff and great tacos! Great vibe!
