Leftover food news: New market in Burlington's South End; Bailiwicks opens in St. Johnsbury

One Love Market has left 457 St. Paul Street, but new owner Veaceslav Scripnic has gone literal with the corner-market theme in naming his business, which opened last weekend: our neighborhood Market. It’s a market with a twist: In addition to standard groceries, the shelves hold hard-to-find foreign foods such as European salami, candy, chocolate, sodas and even goose-liver pâté.

In a few weeks, Scripnic will fill the deli case with meats and cheeses for sandwiches and start serving hot breakfast and lunch fare, such as “Eastern European” burgers blending ground pork and ground beef. Also poised to arrive are Russian beers and wines from Armenia, Bulgaria, Romania and Latvia.


The closure of St. Johnsbury’s Elements Food and Spirit left local food lovers heartbroken. Fortunately, another North Country eatery, Bailiwicks on Mill, has moved into the riverside mill building.

Bailiwicks is already familiar to residents of Littleton, N.H., where its sister restaurant occupies the ground floor of the historic Thayers Inn and dishes up hearty plates of crab cakes, quesadillas, ravioli and steaks, alongside bracing martinis. The owners are using the same concept (and menu) in St. Johnsbury, with specials such as wasabi-and-sesame-encrusted ahi tuna.
