Update: Open during Renovation

November 29, 2011

With all the trees out front and poinsettia flowers and wreaths inside, you could almost miss the other excitement going on.

Many of you who only shop with us during the holidays will be shocked when you come down Central Avenue this December. If you haven’t been around in a while you will hardly recognize the place. Our new, soon-to-be-open-year-round, farmstand is looming on the corner lot and rapidly nearing completion.

Excitement like having a crane swinging rafters amid our Frasier Fir section for example.

While construction is ongoing, we are open for business as usual.

We carry all manner of holiday decorating items, and as of now we do not have food available for purchase aside from fresh apple cider and a few bakery items. Many of you who are new to us this year whether through our partnership with Cape Ann Fresh Catch CSA or just new to the area have been confused by our shuttering of the food store and transformation into a holiday wonderland.

Speaking of the CSA, first pick up of the winter season is next Monday, Dec 5th. Click here or the link to the right for more info and to sign up for your own sustainable seafood share.

While this has been our method for decades, we are happy to remind you that we hope it will be the last time we have to turn someone away hungry for local produce. When we open in April we hope to always have the products you are counting on year round.

But luckily all the excitement is in one place.

This speech is becoming old hat for our die-hard regulars, but we are thrilled that there are always new customers trying to learn the intricacies of our business.

So, where do we stand on construction now? The post and beam work is nearly complete. The framing of the deli and office area is well under way. One of three cupolas is in place. The roofing crew is expected to arrive soon. Concrete walkways are starting to frame entrances and exits.

Finally, and to great relief, the parking lot has been repaved and relined, this time featuring a new entrance further down Forest Street and many more diagonal parking spaces, making getting into and out of our lot much easier.

Stop in and talk to us about the new building. We are loving having the Christmas display around it and there are plenty of us available to help with trees and to talk to you about our plans. Things are changing every day now and getting us closer to our dream building.
