Any updates on the Cortland Marketplace?

Kristine Feb 1, 2010 11:25 AM

I've been patiently awaiting the new marketplace set to open on Cortland.

All the info I could find on line has been an opening of sometime at the end of Jan. I was there yesterday, stopped into Stray Bar ( great dog-friendly bar by the way) and asked the bartender/ owner about it, she knew about the project but said they are running into delays.I thought I would ask the Chowhounds if they knew the scoop. Any more news? Frankly the space looks nowhere near finished from the outside.

    Ok, just thought I'd put this up here again.

    Did some internet searching and the latest proposed opening date seems to be mid April, which has past.

    Anyone know more?

        It opened this weekend. I haven't sampled any of their wares as of yet.

          Went tonight -- it's tiny! You walk in the door, and are immediately in the center aisle. To the left are a produce stand, sushi stand, bakery. On the right is a knife stand, empanada stand, and then Paulie's pickling.

          It's compact and felt that way, even though there were only about 3 other customers. I can't imagine what navigating this place will be like with small children and strollers to contend with.

          We got sandwiches from Paulie's Pickling - a white bean/feta puree and chopped chicken liver. Both had great texture: smooth and creamy, but with a crunchy accent of red pepper in the bean puree and lettuce on the chicken liver. Not your run of the mill. The bread is baked across the street at The Cottage Bakery (fyi).

          Everything looked good and if I lived right around the corner I'd be psyched. I definitely love the idea of having a knife sharpener in the neighborhood.

        I wish them luck. It's going to be hard to compete with the likes of Good Life and Avedano's. Their selection is just a fraction of what others on the street have.
