Brothers Marketplace May Be Coming to Somerville's Davis Square
It looks like a local supermarket chain could be opening a location of its upscale neighborhood market concept in one of the busiest parts of Somerville.
Cambridge Day is reporting that Wellesley-based Roche Bros. is hoping to bring Brothers Marketplace to Davis Square, with the grocery store looking to move into the Social Security building space at 240 Elm Street, which has been empty for several years. If approved, the market--which focuses on "fresh foods and regional artisan products" along with "all the favorites needed for a full grocery shopping experience"--would be the third of its kind, with others being found in Weston and Medfield. A community meeting will take place on the proposed grocery store on September 10.
Over the past couple of years, both World of Beer and Boston Beer Works have showed interest in the Elm Street space, but plans for both ended up falling through.
