Westboro Market just died

In local Ottawa news, the Westboro Community Association's blog is reporting that Westboro Market has closed down.

(I took the picture a week before they announced the closure - I had no idea at the time)

This is a real loss for the community. Last year, Westboro Bakery, the lone bake shop in the neighbourhood, had to close its doors after seeing its rent raised to 3500$ a month. This year the still-young Westboro Market, which was the only source in the area for Art-Is-In bread, followed suit. Too bad, I really hope we don't get another sporting goods store.
