Mulberry Market Signage Goes up in Little Italy
Months delayed, the forthcoming Mulberry Market finally has something to show for itself. Store signage was installed yesterday above the entrance to the highly-anticipated supermarket (stylized as MulberryMARKET).
The new marketplace is apparently a “family business” that is years in the making. It replaces the decades-old MET Food, which was unable to negotiate favorable lease terms and folded in January 2017.
Mulberry Market then swooped in last year to sign a $750,000 annual lease on the full 10,000 square-foot space at 251 Mulberry (split equally between ground and basement). The artisanal supermarket will reportedly sell prepared foods, organic selections, artisanal beer, wine, and coffee.
There is an elevator between floors, but no eat-in option as some had previously speculated.
While there is no official announcement on the opening date, managing partner Abraham Hamdan now broadcasts an “August 2019” launch on Linkedin.
