Construction of the new Trader Joe’s store at 3rd and Fairfax, across the street from the Farmers Market, will start next Tuesday, May 31.
As we reported in February, the A.F. Gilmore company, which owns the Farmers Market, will build a new complex on land that it owns at the northwest corner of the intersection. In addition to a Trader Joe’s, the complex will include a restaurant, a frozen yogurt shop, and two other storefronts.
Fencing around the site will go up this week, in preparation for construction to begin next week. Principal construction should be completed by next March. There is no word yet about when the Trader Joe’s and other shops will be open for business.
Yes, all of this will cause more traffic at a busy intersection. But what can we say? We love Trader Joe’s.
