A new farm to table cafe called Orchard is opening this spring at 257 Columbia Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront area. Owner Julie Solovyeva says the cafe will sell farm fresh produce, locally sourced and homemade products and a selection of publications focusing on food, art and culture.
And to engage its neighbors in food policy discussion, the cafe will host a workshop program addressing issues like food sustainability and urban farming. Community Board Six has already green lighted the cafe’s liquor license application, which awaits approval from the state. Although Solovyeva had originally planned to open in March, she expects to open later in the spring. GMAP
