The only downside? A lack of basic services that are accessible on foot (unless you’re into really, really, realllllly long walks.) So imagine my sheer and utter delight when I noticed space in a nearby building (formerly an extension of Scott Fitness) was being converted into a market. A MARKET!
Welcome to Market 3 (near the intersection of 3rd and Wyandotte), a modest space that boasts all of the essentials: giant cinnamon rolls, The Roasterie coffee and a fresh, colorful salad bar.
OK, OK – maybe you have a different idea of essentials. You’ll also find milk, (fresh farm) eggs (priced at an obscenely low $1.89/dozen), toilet paper, paper towels, soup, canned vegetables, snack foods, Farm to Market bread and more.
If you stop in between now and the end of the month, you may notice the shelves are a lil’ sparse. Don’t worry. The shop’s official opening, according to owner and neighbor, Phil, is scheduled for Oct. 30.
The staff is actively seeking suggestions about what to carry, so if you live or work nearby, pop in and let them know what you’d like to find in a neighborhood market and deli. We just may bump into each other when you do – I have a feeling I’ll be a regular in no time!
