Pony Express’ Erin Gilfillan has purchased the Friendly Street Market. The store will close in August for a remodel, and in the fall it will reopen, still as a market, but the café will be converted to a deli with meats, cheeses and sandwiches, and beer, wine and kombucha on tap for glass and growler fills. Gillifan is planning a new front patio space, with a sliding coffee window that will serve walkers and bicyclists. And in the spirit of Pony Express, they’re adding grocery delivery.
