Mayor Cohen did get the Market House open–albeit a little bit late, but by all reports, there is a good mix of merchants and the pace of business is brisk–not bad for “off season.”
There is also a new website for the Market House — http://www.markethousemerchants.com which will give you menus, hours, and all sorts of information on the new businesses literally in the center of town. But for now, here’s the cheat sheet!
