Update: Market In the Square in Cambridge's Harvard Square Seized by Sheriff's Department; Will Reopen as Wholesome Fresh

[Ed note: This article was update on November 9 to reflect a different name given for the place.]

A grocer and convenience store in one of the busiest parts of Cambridge has been forced to shut down, though the space will not be empty for long.

A Twitter post from megansarahj (via @bonjourcass) shows that Market in the Square in Harvard Square has been seized, with orange signs being posted in the doors of the Church Street shop. Another tweet indicates that the market has been seized by the sheriff's department, while Cambridge Day is now reporting that a spot tentatively called Hello Fresh will be taking over the space and will be nearly identical to Market in the Square, though it will not offer alcohol--at least initially.

Last month we reported that the new business was planning to open in the Market in the Square space, and as was the case with Market in the Square, it is planning to be open 24/7.

The address for Market in the Square/Hello Fresh is 60 Church Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.

[November 7 update: The Harvard Crimson states that Market in the Square was seized by the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department for nonpayment of rent.]

[November 9 update: Cambridge Day mentions that the name of the place will actually be Wholesome Fresh and that it could be opening in a couple of weeks.]
