ROOTED To Reopen March 2nd!

Dear Friends,

We hope you’ve been well while we had to hit the pause button due to financial hardship brought on by the pandemic. It’s been a winter slog but we have great news to share–we are bringing back furloughed staff and reopening ROOTED Armory Cafe & Farmstand on Tuesday, March 2nd as hoped! 

This is made possible in large part because of our community’s generosity, including critical COVID relief grants from the MA Cultural Council and the City of Somerville. Thank you to all who are enabling us to keep holding on so that we can continue to serve our community as a nexus of arts, cultural and community. 

We are going to need your continued support to keep going. If you would like to make a donation to Arts at the Armory, you can do so here. We are also counting on your patronage of ROOTED in order to stay open. Please plan to stop by frequently for delicious takeout menu items (including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and coffee drinks made at our espresso bar), and groceries featuring produce, dairy and pantry items, and beer and wine. Order online so that your order is ready when you come in. Open hours are M – F 8:30am – 6pm, Sat 9am – 6pm, Sun Closed. We know you’ve been missing our reinvented menu, and grocery featuring local and organic products!

As we look towards Spring, we will be seeking to serve our community in new and innovative ways. Stay tuned for updates, to learn what we’re up to, and how you can engage with us.
