Wicker Basket to become new market and cafe’

August 30th, 2008 · Comments

If you read our sister site, MyBallard, you may have already seen this. If not, it’s worth a read for anyone who travels down 8th Avenue. According to MyBallard:

Last week we wrote about the Wicker Basket closing and the post received a lot of comments. We got an email from Michael who says he will be working at the newly remodeled store which will be called the “Take Five Market & Cafe’”. Here is what Michael says:

“We plan to change the concept from convenience store (lotto, tobacco, malt liquor etc. which we will not offer) to a neighborhood market offering fresh produce and espresso with a casual family environment. We will offer a limited dine-in menu emphasizing comfort foods and high quality fresh goods. We are currently facing a huge remodel but we are energetic and hopeful to be opening in late October. We would love to hear your thoughts as our new Ballard neighbors – what do you want to see on our shelves?”

There are more than 70 comments on MyBallard. Feel free to add more here, or there. We’ll make sure the new owners see them.
