Market Street's Getting Another Ferry Building-Style Food Hall

We're okay with the world becoming more like the Ferry Building.
  • We're okay with the world becoming more like the Ferry Building.

Food halls: So hot right now. Instead of anchoring a new building with one or two businesses, more and more developers are putting Ferry Building-style food halls on the ground floor featuring several small, local vendors. The latest comes in the base of fancy new condos being developed at 2175 Market (at 15th), and just had the Planning Commission sign off on its proposal for about 4,000 square feet of mixed food retail.

It wasn't so long ago that the Ferry Building was the only game in town, but that's changing fast. There's a 22,000 square foot market going into the base of the Twitter building later this year. Second Act Marketplace in the Haight got a lot of good buzz when it opened last fall, and 331 Cortland continues to spawn alums including Ichi Sushi and Bernal Cutlery.

The biggest deal of them all might turn out to be Ghirardelli Square, which was acquired in October by Jamestown Properties, which also owns New York's Chelsea Market and Atlanta's Ponce City Market. Anyone up for an F-line food crawl in a year or two?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
