Foodies Market will open a third location in South Boston, reports the Globe. The new store, funded by the 2009 stimulus bill, will open in a former warehouse on West Broadway. Foodies, which currently has locations in the South End and Duxbury, specializes in a wide selection of products “for everyday and gourmet,” including a substantial cheese selection and organic produce.

Foodies will be South Boston’s first big gourmet market, and the Globe story includes, perhaps, the best indicator of the extent of Southie’s gentrification we’ve ever read: “Jeff Cram, 34, who moved to nearby A Street last year, said he was pleased about the new store. He said he and his wife, who is expecting a baby, sometimes have to go as far as the Whole Foods stores near Beacon Hill or in Cambridge to get groceries.” Foodies Southie will open next spring.
