Francis Food Mart in Watertown Has Closed

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a neighborhood market has shut its doors after nearly 70 years in business.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Francis Food Mart in Watertown is no longer in business, with a call placed to the Belmont Street shop confirming that it has indeed closed. The grocery store, which dates back to 1950, offered produce, dairy products, meats and seafood, baked goods, everyday food items, and more, along with beer and wine.

The address for this now-closed market in Watertown was: Francis Food Mart, 1084 Belmont Street, Watertown, MA, 02472.
