Kokomo Cafe is Moving

Foodjunky | Jan 18, 2008 12:23 PM

Anyone know what the situation is with Kokomo Cafe at the farmer's market? This place is a favorite of mine and I went in this week to find out that they've been kicked out of their space after 20 years in business.

The waitress, Sue who has also been there forever, told us that the people who run the Farmers Market, The Gilmores, decided with no reason to boot the long standing tenant with no real explanation. She's been my waitress for over 5 years.

I live in the area and have to say that The Gilmore's are completely destroying any charm that may be left in that market. They're bringing in larger company tenants and kicking out all of the Ma & Pa business owners. What's next? Kicking out the Peanut shop to make room for MacDonalds? Someone needs to put a stop to these people.
