Wildflower Pantry Opens in Former Castlebar Space in Brighton
A food shop that focuses on local items has opened in Brighton, taking over the space where a dive bar had once been.
The Tables section of The Boston Globe mentions that Wildflower Pantry is now open in Oak Square in the former Castlebar space, with the website for the Washington Street store saying that it is a "local-focused grocery" that sells breads, cheeses, honey, bagels, meat, seafood, coffee, soda, and much more. The Globe says that the shop is "aimed at providing those who live farther from the Boston Public Market" and other similar places an option for locally-sourced items all year long.
The Castlebar, which closed its doors in the summer of 2014, was mostly a neighborhood hangout that had a full bar (no food), darts, a jukebox, and TVs.
The address for the new Wildflower Pantry in Oak Square is 575 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, 02135. Its website can be found at http://www.wildflowerboston.com/
