Richard Frank has owned and operated Four Seasons Natural Foods for three decades. He has been leasing the 8,640 square foot market at 120 Henry Street for the past seven years from realtor Frank Parillo. The transaction was finalized for Frank to officially purchase the building in July.
“It made sense for long term piece of mind,” said Frank. “We will be investing in the property for the long term.”
The Four Seasons Natural Foods Café on Phila Street closed temporarily due to COVID, and then officially closed its doors in March. Frank sold the storefront to Philip and Kirsten Lambert in April. Tailgate and Party operates at that location now.
“This is an era of flexibility, so it made sense,” said Frank on selling the building to focus on the market.
Four Seasons is an “independently owned, locally grown market” in downtown Saratoga Springs. As their website states:
“Four seasons has served our community by providing healthy grocery choices, fresh prepared foods, supplements and herbs, beauty care, and the finest organic and local produce options available. We believe strongly in our commitment to provide a healthy and welcoming option downtown.”
And, Frank believes that when sourcing things locally there is not only the element of freshness, but when you buy local there is a connection there – a relationship built with the farmers.
