Big Jim’s Deli, a longtime sandwich shop at Cross Street Market, will close its doors Dec. 16. Owner Anna Epsilantis announced the closure Monday morning with a post on the deli’s Facebook page. The closure comes as Caves Valley Partners plans a massive overhaul of the Federal Hill market. CAPTION There is an irony that must be noted in television’s playing a leading role in making pariahs out of some of its biggest sexual predators lately, while Washington and much of corporate America drag their heels. TV, after all, has been the principal media teacher of patriarchy since its arrival in American homes after World War II.

Over the past 38 years, I have met so many good people and made many good friends,” the Facebook post read. “I want to thank you all for your support and being part of my life. The new redevelopment team and I have mutually agreed to part ways. I plan to close my family business on December 16, 2017. I wish the remaining merchants and the new merchants in the Cross Street Market the best of luck.” Epsilantis was among the market tenants who worked to ensure vendors were not displaced as Towson-based Caves Valley Partners plotted the market’s redevelopment. She could not be reached for comment Monday morning. Sarah Meehan Cross Street Market
