Wallyhood reader David snapped this picture for us yesterday, showing the new brown paper covering the windows of the space formerly occupied by Meridian Market (2201 N 56th St).  “I’m hoping this means something new is in the works,” David wrote.

Indeed, it does!  Looks like the space will soon have a new tenant.  EveryBlock Seattle shows a new liquor license application for a grocery store, called the 56th Street Market, to sell beer and wine.

Thanks for the tip, David!

    Hooray! I’m so glad! I miss the old market because it was within walking distance and carried essentials.

    This is fantastic!! Any info on a projected opening?

  • Margaret

    We’ll let you know as soon as we hear.

    This is terrific news. Thanks for looking into this, Wallyhood, and thanks to David for asking the question.

    I hope it’s nice like the Phinney Ridge market and not a convenience store.

    The company that filed to open the store also runs an aircraft parts company. Hmmmm

    I think they should bring back some of the former hard workers who lost their jobs because of the poor previous ownership. They knew the customer base well, and they served their neighborhood with grace and love.

    That’s good news. I was curious. Hadn’t seen any signs listing it as for rent / lease, so I was hopeful that someone had picked up the location. Glad to see it will live on, hopefully as a neighborhood market. We miss it.

    As manager of the building above, this is indeed good news for the whole neighborhood. The new owners are shooting for the 2nd week of January. Living in this area for 30 years, it’s great to see 3 brothers so dedicated to making this new venue something that the Meridan District, not the Fictious name “Tangletown has always had, wanted and needed. I hope that the neighborhood will embrace them with alot of smiles.
