Old Harvest Co-Op Location to Get New Tenant in Next Six Months

A new tenant will be taking over the old Harvest Co-Op space on South Street in the next six months. But what type of business remains to be seen.

A Boston Urban Partners employee confirmed to Jamaica Plain News that the 1833 sq. ft. storefront at 57 South St. has been leased.

Harvest Co-Op originally occupied the space starting in May 1999, opened a new market down the road on Washington Street by Forest Hills in December 2012, and then closed the South Street market in April 2015.

Empty for a year, it has been the source of much speculation. What would go there? A restaurant? A daycare? A pet store?  We’ll all know this summer.

A big plus for the new tenant might be the outdoor patio. Will the old fence remain ?

    i heard it was a daycare. if true, not the best use of prime retail space.

      Hey jenuphoto, that’s what we’re also hearing. As soon as we have it confirmed, we’ll put out an update.

        Pretty sure the Pine Village daycare that’s currently in the church at Green & Centre is moving down there.

    Hmm, unloading and loading up small toddlers in that busy intersection with practically nowhere to pull over sounds great…. grocery store, please! : )
