Chef's Market, the gourmet shop/off-premises caterer at 231 South St. since 1985, is closing Sunday.

"It got very difficult, to be quite honest," said Peter Georgiou, whose father, George, is an owner. "The streetscape project hurt us for six, seven months and immediately after that, they raised parking [meter] prices. The farmer's market didn't help. Every little thing took its toll."

Georgiou says the market will give back two-thirds of its space, and will be left only with a display showroom for its catering operation.
