I was sad to hear that Fresh Pond Market on Huron Ave. was closing. It was a nice little place and really convenient for picking up a few things after stopping at Formaggio just up the street. I loved the fact that the locals still had paper and pencil monthly accounts and the service was very old-school. This development posted by Marc Hurwitz on Boston Restaurant Talk could potentially be very interesting: I’ll be watching to see where this leads.
[September 11 update: Cambridge Day states that the owners of Formaggio have taken ownership of the space, and while it appears that the store will continue to operate as a market under their ownership, it is not known for sure whether the Fresh Pond Market name will remain. (Formaggio is a group of specialty food shops with locations in Huron Village, Kendall Square, and Boston’s South End.)]
