Wellesley, MA – Roche Bros. opened its third Brothers Marketplace store this week in Waltham, Mass. The neighborhood market offers customers a one-stop grocery shopping and dining experience with a carefully curated selection of fresh foods, local and specialty products, delicious prepared meals, and grocery essentials. The new store will be located at The Merc at Moody & Main, a 269-unit mixed-use transit-oriented development in downtown Waltham.
The opening included a celebratory ribbon-cutting with Waltham Mayor Jeannette A. McCarthy. The first 100 shoppers received a $10 Brothers Marketplace gift card. The new market will be open Monday-Saturday 7am-9pm and Sunday 8am-8pm.
The 8,500 square-foot market emphasizes local producers and vendors that have been handpicked by store associates, including Iggy's Breads from Cambridge, Drink Maple from Concord, Natick Community Organic Farm, and many others. Brothers Marketplace will also feature local vendors from Waltham, including handcrafted breads from Bread Obsession and charcuterie from New England Charcuterie, offered sliced to order, in a sandwich or to take home for sandwiches or salads.
"We are thrilled to make Brothers Marketplace a central part of the community of Waltham," said Rick Roche, co-owner and CEO of Roche Bros. "We look forward to serving local residents and businesses with great food, groceries and products from local vendors at our new market."
Located across from the Waltham Common and the MBTA commuter rail station, The Merc – developed by Northland Investment Corporation – offers residents a dynamic urban living experience with excellent access to transit, restaurants, movie theater, parks, and now, an urban market.
Shoppers at Brothers Marketplace in Waltham can expect an inviting in-store experience, whether staying for a meal or picking up groceries to go.
