Hey friends, if you've recently been down near the Downtown Phoenix Public Market, you've probably noticed lots of construction. In fact, this week "The City of Phoenix will be repairing the concrete in the driveway / alley between Central Ave. and 1st St. at the McKinley St.(north) entrance to the Phoenix Public Market and Royal Coffee Bar, Monday, Oct. 3 through Friday Oct. 7."
We heard from Cindy Gentry and she wants everyone to know that the market and Royal Coffee Bar will continue to be open as usual. You will just need to reroute your entrance, perhaps. She's asking us to "please come into the parking lot from Central and Pierce this coming week."
So don't fear, your chef Mario creations, local wine and Royal Coffee are still open and waiting for you to drop in.
Royal Coffee Bar hours: Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturday 7 a.m. - 4 p.m.; Wednesday nights till 8 p.m.
Phoenix Public Market hours:
Urban Grocery and Wine Bar, Tuesday - Saturday, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.; First Friday, Oct. 7, 7 a.m. - 11 p.m.
Open-Air Market Wednesday 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.; Saturday 8 a.m. - Noon.
