Last winter, Mark and RenÉ Bennett opened a small pop-up coffee bar and gift shop in downtown Hillsboro.
Now, that pop-up is becoming permanent.
Bennett Urban Farm Store, which has operated — under the name Bennett Coffee Roasters Co. — at local farmers markets for years, officially opened its doors last week at its new permanent home, 276 E. Main St. in the former Hill Florist building.
It’s a step up for the Bennetts, who have been operating a small coffee roaster in their downtown backyard for years.
The couple have been making and selling coffee at local farmers markets for years, but they’ve never had a retail space of their own — until now.
