Looks like Duane Reade and that in-coming Starbucks are going to have a fancy prepared foods neighbor—and sooner rather than later. A tipster sent in these shots of the Williamsburg Food Market on N. 3rd between Bedford and Metropolitan—the windows are still papered over ("Coming Soon") but one of the service doors was open. Says he: "The space is definitely fairly large with a number of rows of deli-style refrigeration banks on the left." Talk about Williamsburg growing up—a new grocery store to compete with C-Town and Tops on the Waterfront. [Racked Inbox]
