Ah, the beloved “Nonna’s meatballs” will not be served from the cute little Napoli Market on 261 South Street in Portsmouth anymore according to seacoastonline.com.  All hope is not lost however, owners Terry and Darlene Grant plan to reopen next spring in a new location.  The Napoli Market and Deli have been a fixture of the community since 2013, but the building is now for sale. The Grants, owners of the Napoli Market and Deli, posted a meaningful message on their Facebook page saying, “We love our Napoli community.  The last seven years have been some of the busiest and most exciting.  2020 is telling our family to slow down a bit and enjoy one another.”

 

The good news is that if you just can’t bear a world without “Nonna’s meatballs” the Grants will be offering their meatballs, chicken cutlets, lasagna, baked ziti, and other dishes via their catering service says seacoastonline.com. We need to take a lesson from the Grant’s and spend some more quality time with each other.  Soon enough, the shutdowns will end, and we will long for a day to spend with family. I am going to enhance the time I spend with my family, especially this weekend.

 

Those interested in the building that housed Napoli Market and Deli, it is listed for sale at $489,000.  It is a cute little yellow shingled building that could be utilized as a commercial kitchen or even turn it into a residential condo.  Before the building was occupied by the owners of Napoli Deli and Market, it was Red Ginger.  I wish the Grants well and can’t wait to see them at their new location.
