UPDATE: The representative at Union Market I spoke with was apparently not to be trusted, and it looks like they are not coming into the space after all. Apologies for the confusion.
Big news this morning: Union Market's next location will be the space last occupied by Italian restaurant Sette, on the prime corner of Seventh Avenue and Third Street. A rep for the mini-chain of gourmet groceries has confirmed.
The original Union Market is on the corner of Sixth and Union; one on Seventh Avenue between 12th and 13th opened a couple years later, followed by another down on Court Street. Another is in the works on Houston Street. When this opens it'll be the fifth in the growing empire, and the neighborhood's third.
Sette, the once-popular Italian restaurant, closed for good about a year ago, and owner Giovanni Tafuri opened Giovanni's Brooklyn Eats on Eighth and Prospect shortly after.
