Grand Fare Market (Oakland) closed

“Grand Fare will be closed until further notice” was the message across the top of their website and on a note in the window.

Damn . . . even to say, “Well, that didn’t take long” would be an understatement! In the proverbial blink-of-an-eye . . .

From Luke Tsai’s blog:

In a Facebook post, Washington and his wife (and co-owner) Freya Prowe wrote, “The market’s current incarnation simply required too much cost to keep up basic operations, and we couldn’t keep it going.”

Grand Fare 2.0 is coming.
