A local supermarket chain is further expanding its upscale neighborhood market concept, with a new location now being planned for Cambridge.
The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog states (via The Boston Globe) that Roche Bros. is looking to open a new location of Brothers Marketplace in Kendall Square, with the grocery store coming to the ground floor of One Broadway (where Broadway, Main Street, and Third Street meet). Last month, we reported that another outlet of Brothers Marketplace will be coming to the Merc at Moody and Main apartment building in Waltham, with that one on the way sometime in the spring of 2018; it appears that the Cambridge location won't be opening until 2019, so for the time being, the Waltham location will be its third (joining others in Weston and Medfield) and the Kendall Square location will be its fourth.
The two locations of Brothers Marketplace are small grocery stores that feature fresh foods and regional products; another shop had been planned for Somerville's Davis Square, but it fell through and a location of bfresh (a small-market concept affiliated with Stop & Shop) opened in the Elm Street space earlier this year.
