584Starkweather

584 Starkweather Street was built circa 1882 and has been serving Lower Town Plymouth as a marketplace for over 125 years. This 2 story commercial flat was originally designed to serve as a market on the first level while the 2nd level was designed to house the shop keeper/owner. From 1909-1981 records show that this building was owned by Henry Fisher (Fisher Estate).  This location was most known as Bill’s market for several years and most recently Old Village Market and Plymouth Fish Seafood Market. Today this building has been renovated and now serves as the Honey Hole Diner. Whether dining in or ordering from the carry-out menu, this place offers some great food and a great selection of beverages and fresh baked items on the “coffee shop” side.

When this building was renovated in 2017, the owners of the diner decided to have the North & South exterior walls painted with some very distinctive Art work (murals) which some people love and some don’t. We are simply pleased with seeing that this part of Plymouth history is being preserved and well cared for.

    I worked in that building in the mid to late 1970s when Bill’s Market was on one side, Plymouth Metal Detectors (owned by Bill Kennedy) was on the other, and Plymouth Fish (owned by Curtis Hahn) was in the back. After Bill Kennedy died in a car accident, Plymouth Metal Detectors was taken over by his wife and in-laws and became Plymouth Metal Detectors and Archery Supply. Plymouth fish sold white fish for 10 cents a pound during Old Village Days.
