The new Westside Market on 3rd Avenue (finally) opens today

EVG reader Harry Weiner shares these photos from outside the new Westside Market on Third Avenue between 16th Street and 17th Street... the signage says that they are "finally" opening today... at 11:30 a.m.

The original coming-soon signage pointed to a late spring debut.

The retail space had been a Met Foods, which closed three-plus years ago. The East Village Westside, five blocks to the south, opened in October 2014.

wow 4 blocks separate them, I guess there are people who never pass the neighborhood boundary of 14th street. I sure would have liked this market to open on Ave A or one of the new buildings on 14th east of A.

I suspect that they'll do just fine. That stretch of Third Avenue used to have several supermarkets, and now there's nothing until you get up to D'Agostino at 26th St. Yes, the Trader Joe's is at 14th and Third--but when the line for the checkout extends to the door, I tend to say "It's only food." I'd be glad to have an alternative.
