South Boston is one step closer to having a new supermarket after a representative for Foodie’s Market appeared before the city’s Licensing Board Wednesday morning.

Edward O’Donnell, a representative for the market, was seeking a license to serve food at the market’s new West Broadway location, which will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Sundays.

The 8,000-square-foot market, which has a sister store in the South End, will have take-out options and is slated to open at 230 West Broadway by October, according to O’Donnell.

“This is almost exactly the same [as the South End location],” O’Donnell told the board Wednesday.

Unlike the South End location, however, the West Broadway store will not sell alcohol.

The store will have sandwiches and prepared foods, in addition to a large selection of gourmet and local products.

The market will also have 16 off-site parking spaces for customers, according to O'Donnell.

The market, owned by Victor Leon, received the support of state Representative Nick Collins, the mayor’s office and at-large City Councilor Felix Arroyo.

The board will make its decision Thursday.
