Sweetgrass Market (in the west end at 85th Street and 9th Ave SW) has struggled through difficult times since it opened last June, and it was just about ready to close its doors. But along came Bob Whitworth of *Simple Simon Pies* who took over Sweetgrass a few days ago. If anyone can save this Market (all 10,000 sqft of it), Bob's the guy. His plans are to fill the place up with new food vendors in the next 2 months, including (naturally) Simple Simon Pies and Meals, soups, breads, produce, meats, cheeses, Indian food, Greek food, a food court and much more. He also plans to redecorate so it looks more like a Market than the sterile look and feel it has now. From what I know of Bob, I expect he'll do a fine job of it, and the West End will see a vibrant small market reappear within a couple of months.
