Portland’s latest grocery concept launches Tuesday as Lisa Sedlar opens the first edition of Green Zebra Grocery.

Sedlar, the former CEO of New Seasons Market, is launching a chain of small-form groceries that brings high quality, sustainably-produced foods to a convenience store format.

The debut Green Zebra launches Oct. 8 in Kenton at 3011 N. Lombard St. in a building that was originally constructed for Safeway. The opening date was pushed back from Sept. 25.

Sedlar intends to open additional locations on Southeast Division Street and on Southeast Woodstock Boulevard, with more locations in the pipeline.
