CONSTRUCTION IS MOVING ALONG AT CATONSVILLE GOURMET & FINE FOOD! LOOK FORWARD TO A TRULY "FRESH" START TO 2008!

I would like to start this letter out by thanking some people that have helped me get Catonsville Gourmet to this point. Many thanks to Tom Raineville & Pierce MacGill from the MD.Dept. of Economic Development who got me on the right path, and Steve Smith and everyone from BB&T who got the deal done. Most of all I would like to thank Craig Witzke for all of his patience and efforts to make this venture come true ! Craig could have filled the "Hardware Store" along time ago with a tenant, but chose to follow his vision and give Catonsville & "Strawberry Fields" a business that will truly fit. Catonsville is lucky to have him and his continuing efforts to improve Catonsville.
Catonsville Gourmet - Market & Fine Foods will be a very diverse operation. Offering the very best meats, seafood and prepared items in a variety of forms. Customers will be able to shop in the market area, grab a quick sandwich or salad and enjoy it at the eating counter, or relax and dine gourmet in our beautifully renovated seating area and tasting / raw bar. Customers will also be able to call ahead and conveniently pick-up any of our fine fresh and frozen product from the market, or pick-up a carry-out order from our menu ! Whichever way you choose to get you product, they will be the freshest and highest quality available, with an emphasis on local and seasonal products. Catonsville Gourmet will also be able adjust its offerings to the demands of the customers, which will include the prepared foods as well.
I am hoping that this revitalization project will lure many other Catonsville business men & women to see the benefits of upgrading our Frederick Rd corridor ! This venture should be something very unique and a landmark in Catonsville! And while the building may be known as the "hardware" for now, it will quickly become Catonsville Gourmet - Market & Fine Foods after your first bite !!!!! More to come !

Many Thanks,
Sean T. Dunworth

I am looking forward to shopping and eating at your store. You were fantastic with the food selections and setup at the St Mark Gala last April. Can't wait to see the new place up and running. Good luck and congratulations!

Congrats on the new store!
Go Catonsville!
Whats up with the musical notes in tha village?
Great idea but they seem like a trip hazard.
They need to be bigger or closer to buildings.

I agree on the musical notes being a potential hazard. Indeed, they're cute, but I can see the injury lawsuits coming.
They really need to be removed from walkways.

When is the Market expected to open? The future of Catonsville is starting to look brighter.
I think the musical note bike racks are cute! Susan

I just hope the bicyclists can actually see the cute tiny bike racks in time ahead of them so they don't hurt themselves or others.

Whoa...those cute little sculptures are bike racks?
I agree they need to be moved to avoid law suits. Great,fun idea but the partys responsible should consider a reinstalation.

Please give us an update on the Catonsville Gourmet!

We can't wait until Catonsville Gourmet opens! It will be wonderful to have another "destination" restaurant in town.

Strawberry Fields is looking great...

The new restaurant/market will be a real asset to the community.
Everywhere we go, we hear people talking about it.
Can you tell us when it will open?
