People were not buying the most expensive vegetables in the county. Surprised?
It was back in December that Rick Antle, president and CEO of Tanimura & Antle, the employee owned family farm company that owns the cafe/coffee house/specialty market, said it was time to sell the space. The property located at 209 Figueroa St. in Monterey includes 3,701 square-feet of retail space. It’s up for sale for $2.09 per square foot plus triple net charges. Antle said that going into the venture, management had expected produce and local sales to be a larger percentage of the profit but instead it became heavily skewed toward the cafe, which isn’t the company’s main focus.
