Cherry Hill Market and Cafe is no more

In an email today Kate Finley breaks the news:

Dear Friends,Cherry Hill Market & Café is closing its doors after Friday, January 8.We have certainly enjoyed being your neighborhood store! We have never been in the food business before, and were no spring chickens when we decided to embark on this project.  It is true what is often said about restaurants and food establishments; there is always something to be done. Simply put, we find we just don’t have enough time and energy to operate the market along with the other parts of our business.  We are looking to simplify our lives.We will keep the equipment, etc. intact at least for awhile, and hopefully someone will come along with a lot of youthful energy and enthusiasm to provide the community with a gathering spot for food and drink.  If you know of someone who would like to own a business, we will offer favorable terms.  You may reach us at 446-1134.We have had a lot of fun putting Cherry Hill Market & Café together, and enjoyed all of our interactions with happy customers.  From now through Friday, ALL MARKET ITEMS 50% OFF!  (discount does not apply to notecards, pottery or Magic Tree products.)Thank you for supporting us!  May we all continue to support local businesses.Tuesday’s Special: Roasted Beef BurritoMissouri Legacy beef, sauteed veggies, and Morningland white cheddar cheese in an organic Stacys tortilla. Served with Salsa. $6.75Soups:- Roasted Squash & Chive- Black Bean Soup

  1. That’s too bad, Chris and I had been wanting to try their brunch but just haven’t had the time lately. Seems like Cherry Hill has a tough time keep businesses around.

  2. The statement “we had never been in the food business before” speaks volumes. The one and only time we were there (for Sunday brunch), we were certainly underwhelmed. From the unorganized inept service (45 minutes to wait for food is too long), and the uninspired bland food that was finally brought out, made us vow never to return. If everyone’s experience was as ours, I can see why it went under. Kostaki’s is great, and is doing a bang-up business, so I’m not sure the location is totally to blame, considering our abysmal experience at Cherry Hill Cafe. Additionally, their “market” was pretty bleak, bare, and laughable as well, much like the “cafe”. Sad, really. We bought one jar of horseradish mustard from the market so we did our part to keep them going.
