Jenifer Street Market may move
A recent story in Isthmus suggested that the Jenifer Street Market might move to the 1800 block of East Washington Avenue a couple of years from now. After 35 years, owner Steve McKenzie is interested in purchasing the 10,000-square-foot store, but the building’s owner and neighbor, Schoep’s Ice Cream, is reportedly not interested in selling. McKenzie said in the article that he’s contemplating a purchase of the former Marling Lumber building for a mixed-use development that would be anchored by his store, which would be renamed. That site is also being discussed as a potential spot for a public market.
