The owners of Haley's Market Cafe say they will be officially opening Saturday morning.
"It's official," say the owners of Haley's Market Cafe -- they're opening the doors Saturday at 7 a.m. The new cafe on Washington Street will be open from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday through Monday and closed Tuesday, before re-opening Wednesday at 7 a.m. "Visit us this week! How we've missed you!" reads a brief update posted on Facebook from Julie Vinette and husband Paul Baker. The couple owns the package store next door and, in fact, used to run Foodie's Feast where the new cafe is until they closed up shop in 2011 and the Rockhopper Cafe moved in. The Rockhopper then closed last fall. Vinette told Marblehead Patch they were just awaiting the final health inspection on Friday, and pending approval, would be all set to open Saturday.

A round up of North Shore restaurant and food news.
When you're looking for a night out and a break from cooking, you might want to know what's new not just where you live, but in other nearby North Shore communities. Here's our round up of the latest food news in the area: I associate lights that change with the music with dance clubs. But a new cafe on Washington Street will also be offering lights that change with its music. Here's a quick video of the lights as Haley's Market Cafe as it prepares to open. The latest news about the cafe is that last week the Board of Selectmen approved the restaurant's license. Sad news for fans of pierogi and Gypsy pancakes: Cafe Polonia will be closing its doors soon. Having just moved to Salem and only eaten there twice, I know I'll miss the Polish and…
