Your local grocer is getting a flash, big-city revamp with a new European-inspired fresh food market coming to the CBD this autumn. Family-owned retail group Romeo's is set to open Locali by Romeo's, a large-scale grocer and cafe, within the newly renovated, multimillion-dollar George Street office building.

Inspired by the grand market halls in Budapest, Barcelona, Rome and beyond, the market will be a one-stop-shop for fresh produce and tasty treats with a walk-in cheese room, salumi bar, nut bar, continental deli and a liquor store with wine tastings. Fresh meat and fish will be available for at-home dinners and a florist will be on hand for you to pick up flowers on your way home from work and woo that special someone.

CBD workers and citysiders looking for a bite to eat or a caffeine fix will also be in luck, with the market set to be home to a dine-in cafe, commercial kitchen, Italian bakery and sushi bar.

Romeo's has signed a 15-year lease for the 1600-square-metre space inside 388 George Street. Alongside Locali by Romeo's, the office building is home to a five-storey retail space and yet-to-be-revealed rooftop bar. Completed last November, a $200 million renovation of the space included a complete redesign of the office spaces, as well as new ceilings, lobbies and amenities.

A second Locali by Romeo's is set to open midway through 2021 at Brookfield Place Sydney, the $2 billion office and retail building being built above Wynyard Station.

Locali by Romeo's will open at 388 George Street, Sydney in mid-March.
