Tempe Public Market Café, found at Rural and Warner roads, reopened on June 10 after a heavy remodel. Now it has re-closed, but for good this time, as of today — Friday, January 17.
The closing was announced via social media.
"This was not an easy decision and we can not express our gratitude for every person that has supported us on this journey,” the online statement reads. “We have seen great success here, however, this was the next leg of our journey. Our team is continuing to grow and pursue other opportunities, stay tuned for more the come.”
Dave Chamberlin was president of the 3,400-square-foot Tempe Public Market Café. In June, chef and restaurateur Aaron Chamberlin announced he was stepping away from his Tempe establishments — Tempe Public Market Café and Ghost Ranch. He said he and his restaurant partner had decided to go their separate ways after spending 10 years in the restaurant business together.
Tempe Public Market Café opened in January 2018.
