It’s been a roller coaster ride for residents of 200 Schermerhorn and the immediate area hoping for a supermarket. A year ago, we reported that a supermarket was slated for part of the ground-floor retail space in the new(ish) building. Then, by March, it was looking like the deal had fallen through. Now, based on this photo from a tipster, it looks like the market is back on. The signs mention fresh fruit, produce, and cheese, as well as fresh fish daily. “I don’t recognize the font,” writes the tipster, “but they have a nice tongue-in-cheek way that makes me think that it’s going to be decent.” A second tipster also remarked on the type of type: “I’m a big believer that a good choice of font is an accurate indicator of a good business.” We’re surprised this news isn’t already plastered all over the front page of the be@schermerhorn website! Update: A tipster just wrote in to say that the market’s name will be Brooklyn Fare.
