The 20,000-square-foot store also features products from local producers and vendors that have been handpicked by store staff, as well as exclusive Brothers Marketplace Duxbury Dragon oysters that will be raised by Powder Point Oysters in Duxbury Bay.

“We have been so touched by the warm welcome we are receiving from the town,” said Roche. “Local residents have been stopping by the store during construction to peek in the windows and have shared their excitement with us at the Duxbury Music Festival and other local events. I hope our new neighborhood market becomes a fixture of this historic town and a favorite shopping and dining experience for the community.”
