The Green Light Café in Randolph is closing its doors after 10 months in business, proprietor Josh Mather announced on social media on December 2. He wrote, "It is with much regret that I have decided that I can no longer keep the Green Light operating."
The café, whose building was adorned with what its social media feed called "the first stoplight in town," opened in February. Patrons could peruse a selection of books — provided by the nonprofit Friends of the Kimball Public Library — over an espresso drink made with beans from Carrier Roasting, pastries from Sweet Alchemy Bakery and Café, or panini made on Red Hen Baking bread. The community-focused space frequently hosted live music and board game nights.
"With your help we created a place that I enjoyed working, and I hope you enjoyed visiting," wrote Mather, who could not be reached for comment.
