Last year, we reported that a neighborhood grocery store in Boston's South End of Boston had closed down and that the family of the owner--who had passed away--was looking to lease the space to someone who would open another market. Now we have learned that the space is indeed going to be home to a new grocery store.
According to its website, Muscarella's Market is opening in the former Five Seventy Market space on Tremont Street, with an earlier Boston Sun article indicating that the store had planned to soft-open over the summer and possibly have a grand opening this month. A licensing board hearing page actually shows that a petition to transfer the license of the business from Five Seventy Market to Muscarella's Market is expected to take place on September 27, so it appears that the soft opening has not happened as of yet. The Sun article indicates that owner Scott Jackiewicz is looking to keep a similar concept to that of the old market, including offering salads, sandwiches, smoothies, and prepared meals, but with his own "twist" on things.
Five Seventy Market shut down in February of 2016, with owner Allen Seletsky passing away the following month; the shop had been in business for a bit under 10 years.
The address for the upcoming Muscarella's Market is 570 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02118. Its website can be found at http://muscarellasmarket.com/
