Riverside Market Awaits Friday's Licensing Decision for Beer and Wine Sales

​In the event you've been by Riverside Market for an Oktoberfest beer or six, you've likely seen the sign on the door the past few weeks: "No consumption of beer or wine in house or on the premise."

Today, Riverside Market had its hearing in front of city government to determine whether the market-slash-restaurant can continue as is or will have to curtail sales to beer and wine to go. 

Any chance the market will be denied a license? "You never know," said an employee. "The building is from the 1920s. Its age and condition might affect whether we get approved."  

Riverside Market expects to hear the outcome by this Friday.
