European Neighborhood Market

our story 


In 1886, John C. Dietz built his apothecary, personal residence and 2 additional live-&-work storefronts at the corner of Wayne and Jones:  The Dietz Block. Yesterday it was known as the Norman Miller building. Today this historical building will be known as District Provisions.

District Provisions is a turn-of-the-century-style neighborhood market. It was designed and built to supply the primary daily grocery needs (provisions) to the residents of the Oregon District, South Park, St. Anne’s Hill, and the downtown Dayton commuting customers. We provide the highest quality organic produce, local humanely raised proteins, fresh local dairy, hand selected craft beer, imported wines, organic health foods and unique household goods. With amazing restaurants and bars already defining the Oregon District’s dining and nightlife, District Provisions and its tenants are providing the daily retail food and carryout services lacking in the
neighborhood. Our goal is to be a daily destination for neighborhood residents to walk or bike to, in search of“what’s fresh and seasonal today.”

We aim to be an extension of your home kitchen pantry, or your source for a quick grab-and-go meal. Our purveyors are true artisans who are providing products not available to the residents of the Oregon District today. Think local, neighborhood. 

Curated. Whole. Fresh. Market.
