Members open new cafe and market

Slow Food Katy Trail members Kate and Roy Finley have opened Cherry Hill Market & Café at 4200 Merchant Street in the Village of Cherry Hill.

"Our theme is simple, fresh and local--using the freshest ingredients and local products whenever possible," says Kate. "In addition to our breakfast and lunch menu, we have daily specials," which are listed on the Web site. (

Last week, this snail visited with several other SFKT members who were eating there alfresco. My informal survey among the diners garnered a big thumbs-up for the curried tofu salad, Jenn's Ham & Roasted Pepper sandwich and a reuben called "The Don of Cherry Hill."

The cafe kitchen closes at 2 p.m., but the market is open later. Its deli case features local meats and cheeses and other items such as salads, olives and baked beans. Offerings change daily.

Monday through Friday hours are 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., and Saturday hours are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

We're thrilled to have another "Slow" eatery in town, so let's show them our support!
