Scranton restaurant closes

The Wandering Hen Market and Cafe shut down even after the community raised money to try to save it.

SCRANTON, Pa. — The Wandering Hen Market and Cafe on Penn Avenue is now closed.

The business was a part restaurant, part market, selling food and gifts from about 50 other businesses.

Over the summer, the owners were struggling to keep the eatery open with an online fundraising attempt. 

A GoFundMe page was set up to raise $17,000 for rent and other bills, but that only worked for a time. 

Sunday was slated to be the last day for the Wandering Hen, but the owners said employees did not show up for work.
