BIZNOTE: Tony’s Market opening Saturday, June 3rd

After lots of questions about when Tony’s Market – the produce stand at 35th SW/SW Barton (file photo at right) – would be opening for the season, we finally have the answer as of moments ago: Next Saturday, June 3rd. As we’ve been telling all the people who have been e-mailing us to ask, we’ve driven by multiple times a day hoping to find proprietor Joey Genzale there. A short time ago, a texter told us they had just talked with him at the market, and learned he planned to open next Saturday, so we detoured over in hopes he was still there. He was, and told us that the late opening this year – almost a month later than last year – is because the local produce is running so late after the long, rainy winter and spring. He also has done more remodeling inside the stand, so you’ll see some new fixtures when he opens. (If you’re new here – Tony’s is named for longtime proprietor Tony Genzale, Joey’s dad, who died in 2010. Besides spring/summer/early fall produce, the market also sells Christmas trees.)

    Looking forward to shopping there. I  heard that the property was sold to a developer. Glad  to hear that wasn’t true! Bring the corner back to life :)
