Public Market Opening
updated: Apr 13, 2014, 6:20 PM

By Lauren Bray

The Public Market on West Victoria treated the community to a soft opening this weekend. Friends and family were invited to check out the shops and sample the multitude of food and goodies located in the new Alma del Pueblo mixed-use development on the corner of Victoria and Chapala Streets.

With a focus on local farms and artisanal ingredients each purveyor brings something unique to the table, literally and figuratively. An interesting element includes "The Kitchen," which is a commissary kitchen that will feature specialty cooking classes and winemaker dinners. The Public Market will be opening on Monday, April 14th from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm, though some hours may differ for certain purveyors. Below are photos of each shop in the market. Visit SBpublicmarket.com for more information.
