The Metrowest Daily News has the latest on the future of the Country Gourmet. Property owners, and former Capasso Farms proprietors, John and Liz Sherry told selectmen on Tuesday night that the Country Gourmet’s lease was terminated last fall.
The Sherry’s want to see the liquor license transferred to Shohdy Ziada, who also owns Turnpike Liquors on Route 9, but there’s some red tape that needs to be worked out before that can happen. You can read all the details in the Metrowest Daily News.
Assuming it all gets worked out, Ziada will open Southboro Vineyard & Market on the site:
Ziada said the market will sell plants, farm stand goods, meats, produce, and more, as well as operate an ice cream stand and grow grapes. He also plans on selling beer and wine, though as a secondary focus.
That’s an improvement (in my opinion) over how the business was previously described to selectmen, when it was billed as more of a convenience store.
