Things couldn’t be more convenient when The Market
at 1355 Market Street is mere steps from your door at NEMA San Francisco. We had a chance to catch up with the Marketing Director and gain some insight on what’s happening at The Market + some exciting news that will be coming very soon. They shared info on the new Food Hall, a new community art space, the best time to shop, catering services, wine + weekly deals, new tenants and more! If you missed the latest news on the Mid-Market food scene, let’s recap for you.
The massive Food Hall that’s planned for The Market on the remaining ground floor of the Twitter building will be opening in the next couple of months and will feature an amazing cast of tasty choices. Heroic Deli, Hot Bird, Mecha Ramen, 3-19 Coffee, Northern Bubbles just to name a few. Plus, they have also welcomed Tortellino’s in a stall right outside of The Market Twitter entrance featuring fresh Italian pasta dishes.
Besides the Food Hall, more exciting things are happening at The Market! They have made many changes to the flow of the grocery department so that it will be easier for customers to shop. They have added an international isle featuring products from around the world. Have ideas?

Bae Hay: From the owners of Poke Bar, Bae Hay offers a unique sushi menu, beginning with fresh oysters and a variety of unique beers and sake. Most of the high-end fish is cured with salt and vinegar. The selection of oysters are chosen daily and are of the finest quality.
Poke Bar: We know that time is of the essence in this, and every other, city. We wanted to create a way for you to be able to enjoy quality food without missing a beat in your daily schedule. From this, our love of sushi & Hawaiian Poke, our purpose was found: to provide fresh, fast Poke without sacrificing taste, health, and quality.
Matko: Matko offers Korean-style lunch boxes (Dosirak) that feature Korean comfort food. Fresh vegetables, homemade banchan (Korean side dishes), and healthy proteins are the key highlights of Matko’s food.
Insider Shopping Tips:
Food Delivery: A lot of The Market tenants offer their foods on various platforms such as Caviar, Ritual, UberEats and more. If you want to skip lines or don’t want to leave your home utilize one of these apps.
Full Breakfast: They offer a full hot food breakfast every morning at the hot food bar! We’re talking awesome things like French toast, scrambled eggs with chorizo, bacon, house sausage, oatmeal, and more. It’s a great option to grab a quick hot breakfast. They also offer breakfast sandwiches, bagels, and avocado toast in the Market cafe 7 days a week.
Best Time to Shop: The best time to shop for groceries tends to be on the weekends. Some of the food tenants tend to close on the weekends but the retail offerings are always open. Unlike most stores the foot traffic is actually less on the weekends so it makes it a much more peaceful shopping time with very short lines.
Best Time for Samples: want to score samples? Go Monday-Friday either 11am-2pm or 5pm-8pm. Look for a public calendar of demos soon!
Wine Deal: Did you know if you buy any 6 bottle or more of wine you can get 10% off? This discount is always available, but seldom mentioned or advertised.
Did You Know?
100% Organic: The entire produce department is 100% organic and locally sourced whenever possible. This is often why some items are not available year-round as local farms cannot offer them year-round.
Craft Chocolates: The Market features over 60 craft chocolates brands from all over the world. And, they are planning a new display that will showcase some of the best chocolates from around the world.
Open 364 Days: The Market is always open (except for Christmas day). This means that you can always stroll over to get last minute groceries and food year-round.
Thanx Loyal Shoppers: The Market is working on some more robust offerings for loyal customers. They are currently setup with a mobile app called Thanx with some simple rewards based on purchases made within the store. This program will expand and grow this year with exciting offers for new customers and better incentives.
