“We are so delighted to be expanding our culinary offerings at MarketStreet Lynnfield this year. We continue to strive to introduce new flavors and concepts to speak to a diversity of taste buds – from poké lovers to candy fanatics!” says Charlotte Woods, General Manager of MarketStreet Lynnfield.

“We’re very excited about teaming up with MarketStreet Lynnfield on this project. During these crazy, crazy times, we all need something to look forward to, and for the Serenitee Restaurant Group, it’s Alchemy,” says Jeff Cala, COO of the Serenitee Restaurant Group. “The brand was established in 2003 and started it all. Alchemy was built on a staff that became a family, with a vibe that was all about comfort and fun, and menus that were created with love and the idea of adventure. This restaurant will become a community beehive; the place to go to see old friends, make new ones, and spend time with your family while enjoying some of the best food and beverages on the North Shore.”

“The Candy Dish is thrilled to officially make MarketStreet Lynnfield our new home! You’ll find us just around the corner from our Holiday Pop-Up. It was impossible to leave our MarketStreet Lynnfield customers after such a warm reception to our pop-up shop over the holidays.  We’ll always be a handmade, artisan candy company, but we can’t wait to surprise you with a brand new Candy Dish that we know you’re going to LOVE! Come visit us in our new home starting now!” says Melissa DiMinico, co-owner of The Candy Dish.

Opening Summer 2021
Alchemy will feature creative, seasonal New American fare along with incredible selections of sushi and a list of approachable craft cocktails, all served in a casual, family-friendly environment. Owned and operated by the North Shore’s Serenitee Restaurant Group, Alchemy first debuted in 2003 in Gloucester where it quickly became a neighborhood gem and was loved by the community for over twelve years. The restaurant group is thrilled to be bringing Alchemy back, but this time with a vibrant new look and fresh take on its menu for its opening at MarketStreet Lynnfield. The new Alchemy will be one of the group’s largest restaurants to date, seating 297 guests and boasting two large indoor and outdoor bars as well as an extended patio with plenty of seating to enjoy the season. The highly anticipated return of Alchemy is poised to generate excitement throughout the region when it opens its doors this summer.
The Candy Dish
Now Open
In 2015, after a short period of filling orders for private events, Co-Founders and fellow New Englanders, Melissa DiMinico, and Shauna Semenza realized their homemade candy products were gaining popularity and shifted their trajectory by committing to their confectionary craft full time. Since opening The Candy Dish, this sweet-minded duo has turned their business into a premiere artisan candy company, claiming praise, awards, and accolades from regional culinary competitions and trade shows. This past holiday season, they introduced their first brick and mortar store with their pop-up at MarketStreet Lynnfield. The pop-up thrived and inspired the two women to grow their business into a new permanent location. The Candy Dish customizes flavors that will elevate all celebrations and features assortments of candy, beautifully gift wrapped in luxe signature boxes and gift bags. A can’t miss item is its signature Chocolate Lobster, which is similar to a chocolate turtle, but allows for even more buttery caramel to be sandwiched between cashew “claws and legs.” It can be purchased in milk, dark or white chocolate.
