Ospreys are not all that have fled the Fresh Market shopping center.
4 of the 6 easternmost storefronts are vacat.
So is Patio.com, which recently decamped for new digs on the site of the old Brook Cafe, across the street from Starbucks.
Is it a sign of a changing economy? Rents that climbed out of whack? Competition from other shopping centers, or other towns?
The good news: There’s plenty of parking.
Take 3 spaces. No one will care.
