The Market Restaurant in Gloucester's Annisquam Neighborhood Has Closed for Good

A seasonal restaurant on the North Shore that was known in part for its scenic water views has closed for good, though the COVID-19 pandemic is apparently not the cause.

According to a source (Cynthia Lawry), The Market Restaurant in the Annisquam neighborhood of Gloucester is permanently shuttered, with a note on its website saying that "Although this coincides with the closing of many restaurants due to the ongoing pandemic, this was a decision we made some time ago. Our priority right now is to create a lifestyle more conducive to raising a family." The note goes on to say that the people behind The Market Restaurant are cooking at Short & Main in Gloucester (their sister dining spot) for the time being, and they plan to debut Market Catering at some point.

The address for The Market Restaurant in Annisquam was 33 River Road, Gloucester, MA, 01930.
