AA Market, open for two months at 138 South St., is seeking a license to sell beer and wine.
Owner Marcia Peguero Mojica today asked the Boston Licensing Board today to defer acting on her request until after she makes her her case to the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council at a Sept. 8 meeting.
"The market is looking to become a little niche in the neighborhood, her attorney, Carolyn Conway, said. Although there is a packie nearby, Conway said AA would have "a totally different clientele" - people looking to pick up some beer with their dinner essentials.
"We've been asked mostly for beer" by customers, Conway said.
A representative from the mayor's office said AA has been " a fine addition" to South Street.
