Announcing a new Meetup for Chandler Foodies and Wine Enthusiasts!

What: Lunch at Liberty Market

When: June 30,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Liberty Market

Liberty Market, a family-run, local grocery store has served the Gilbert area since 1935. In each era of its existence, the owners have offered products and services consistent with and appropriate to the clientele that utilized the Market. This, along with friendly and personalized service, has created a foundation we intended to continue as we transition Liberty Market into a new and dynamic era for the Town of Gilbert.

Liberty Market an urban gathering place with a market-style dining environment combined with specialty retailing. While the original Liberty Market was comprised of 80% retail and 20% restaurant foods (with 12 seats), the new design will invert those numbers and offer 80% restaurant foods (with 140 seats) and approximately 20% retail. The food offering will be broad and eclectic, tailored to current trends in dining fused with traditional methods and craftsmanship. The expectation is that most people will dine at the restaurant, but with today?s need for speed and convenience, food to go will be available in several forms ? called ahead meals, shopping from displays for ready-to-eat meals, and cooking kits to make at home.

The environment will integrate the old feel of a small town market with the new feel of an urban restaurant in a hip and appealing way. Lots of bustle combined with the visual elements of open food preparation help create a vibrant space where people want to ?hang out? and be known as a regular. This will be amplified by the warm attention each customer receives from the owners and staff. In looking for a place to call their own, customers will embrace Liberty Market. The Market is designed so that interaction and involvement between customers and the staffing team is easy and natural.

The retail offering will be primarily foods of the best quality but will also include creative items that add to the ambience of the Market. Rather than having a broad and confusing selection of retail items, each item will be selected specifically so as to take the purchasing guesswork out of the hands of customers. To promote the Liberty Market brand, prepackaged cooking kits and signature items will be available as well as certain branded ingredients, lifestyle products and apparel.

It is expected that, over time, Liberty Market will become a place that customers see as an extension of themselves ? an integral part of their routine. The Liberty Market brand will mean something to people. When a gift or a catering package comes from Liberty Market the receiver is assured of the quality and uniqueness of the gift and the giver knows that the best ingredients and thoughts were involved in the creation of the package.
