The storefront at 505 Nichols St. is unassuming, but anyone who’s crossed its threshold since Monday has walked into Fulton’s first downtown market in more than 10 years.

The Brick Street Market officially opened for business Monday, and though it hasn’t put up signage yet, it has rolled out an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, canned and boxed goods, dairy, meats and other day-to-day items for shoppers to peruse.

Brick Street Market is owned by Michael Harrison and operated alongside his brother, Jeremy. Michael Harrison has background working in grocers at both of Fulton’s current larger supermarkets, C&R and Moser’s, and said he was ready to start his own venture.

“I saw a need for (a downtown grocery store) and heard from customers who said they saw a need,” Harrison said. “I always wanted to be in business for myself, so I decided to take a shot.”

Harrison described Brick Street Market as a “basic grocery store” that, while smaller than other stores in town, stood out in its location, look and feel.

“You won’t have to walk around for five miles to get what you need,” Harrison said. “We have so many people who live and work downtown that can walk here on their lunch break, and in this town you have older people or college students who maybe don’t have cars. But here you can go downtown after work, get what you need and go home.”
