Simone Reggie opened Simoneâ€™s Market on Oak Street on December 23, 2016. In the late 1800s, Oak Street was the â€śMain Streetâ€ť for the busy Carrollton neighborhood. The popular street offered patrons everything from shoe repair and barber shops to apparel stores and markets. Today, Oak Street is alive and well and Simoneâ€™s Market is one reason why locals continue to enjoy this historic street. Simoneâ€™s neighborhood food store focuses on local produce, but also offers its customers sit down dining. Weekday menus feature traditional sandwiches, salads, chicken pot pies, and other favorites. On Sundays from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in a nod to her heritage, Simone offers a Lebanese Dinner inspired by her grandmotherâ€™s traditional recipes.
