Wholesome Fresh opened in Newport on November 29, 2017. After opening in Newport, Wholesome Fresh opened a second location earlier this year in Cambridge, MA. As of Wednesday morning, that location remained open.

Wholesome Fresh did not respond for additional details on what the future looks like for their location or the reasoning for their closure.

Washington Square Cafe & Baking Company, the previous occupant, permanently closed on Sunday, April 16th, 2017.
