Uptown Market (2400 W. Main St.) went away and now we know it’s Moon Rocks Gelato coming in.
Behind Moon Rocks is Ali Alasker, a former VCU student and local food industry veteran.
“It’ll be gelato with a twist,” Alasker said. “There are a lot of ice cream stores in the area down near the Fan and VCU, but there’s not a whole lot of gelato in Richmond, period.”
In addition to gelato and gelato shakes, Alasker said Moon Rocks also will offer waffles with various toppings.
They hope to be open later this month.

VIDEO: Richmond Police seek suspect in St. Patrick’s Day burglary at VCU area vape shop
WATCH: The suspect can be seen on surveillance footage tucking and rolling through the glass of Kulture’s front door before smashing and grabbing merchandise.
Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in a commercial burglary that occurred on St. Patrick’s Day at Kulture, a vape shop near VCU’s Monroe Park Campus.
At approximately 6:10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 17, officers responded to a business in the 1200 block of West Cary Street for the report of a commercial burglary. When officers arrived, a witness stated she heard glass breaking from the business next door.
Video surveillance shows a man jump headfirst into the glass door of the business. He’s then seen smashing a cabinet and reportedly stole thousands of dollars of merchandise.
The suspect was last seen wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a black backpack.
Anyone with information about the identity of this suspect is asked to call Third Precinct Detective R. Bailey at (804) 646-3192 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com. The P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app for smartphones may also be used. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
Councilperson Stephanie Lynch taking Monthly Meeting to Facebook Live
The 5th District first Facebook Live meeting is on Thursday, March 26 at 6pm. The agenda will include COVID information, businesses relief efforts, extended tax deadlines, and community outreach/volunteering while practicing social distancing.
Since meeting in person is obviously off the table 5th District Councilperson Stephanie Lynch is bringing her meeting to Facebook Live. This will be happening tomorrow, Thursday, March 26th, at 6 PM. It’s also worth reminding everyone that this is uncharted territory for most and there will be technology hiccups, leaders won’t have all the answers, and patience is more valuable (only slightly) than toilet paper.
We will be attempting our first Facebook Live meeting on Thursday, March 26 at 6pm. The agenda will include COVID information, businesses relief efforts, extended tax deadlines, and community outreach/volunteering while practicing social distancing.
Please comment in the event if you have a specific topic you would like covered. If we can not get to it we will try to include it in the April newsletter and on social media.
We’ll be loading a bunch of PSAs in this event for review and sharing.
We are thinking of all of you.
Stephanie & Amy
