THE PROJECT  We are opening a new type of Market.  From sourcing  to production, from layout to labels, from shopping to checkout, we have reconsidered what a market can be.  As with Local Mission Eatery and Local's Corner, Local Mission Market is driven by three values: 1) Local, 2) Handmade, and 3) Transparent.  This is unique and a challenge for a restaurant.  This is totally new for a Market.  

THE VALUES + ONE  1) Every fruit, vegetable, meat, poultry, fish, egg, grain, dairy, cheese, oil, vinegar, wine, beer, and more will come from Central and Northern California (coffee, tea, and chocolate will be from local purveyors).  2)  We will make everything from scratch--pasta, pickle, bread jam, condiment, cured meat, sausage, smoked fish, candy, spice rub, dried fruit, and more and more.  3) We will make it all at Local Mission Market.  4) We are designing systems to make this the smoothest grocery shopping in San Francisco.

ALL THAT AND CONVENIENT?  Yes. 

HOW?  Our complete inventory--from produce to prepared food--will be available online for pick-up.  Yes, everything.  Seriously.  And Members will also be able to get home  delivery.  We are building an in-store iPad app to pre-weigh your produce and bulk bins, so that you have printed bar codes for speedy checkout.  We will have mobile scanners, so there will be short lines.  And more.

AMAZING.  YET THAT SOUNDS PRICEY.  The Market will not be.  But building the space and the systems add up.  We can use your help.

THE IMPACT  Your support will help us open the doors and support dozens of local employees, as well as local farmers, rancher, cheesemakers, brewers, winemakers, and more.  Bring to life a new idea for what a market can do.  Be a part of making Local Mission Market the best market it can be.  

MORE SPECIFICALLY Your support will fund systems that will make your shopping experience at Local Mission Market easy, convenient, and elegant. 

  • The complete webstore for delivery and pick-up.  
  • The custom iPad app for weighing produce and bulk items and learning more about the farms and purveyors.  
  • Mobile scanners for checkout. 
  • A Kids Tab so that your kids can shop without giving them money.  

THANKS  We cannot thank you enough for your support.  We are going to try with the rewards from us and some of our great collaborators.

Risks and challenges

We are well into construction (space updates soon). We are opening this summer. We have a great team. Yet to make your Market just right--the systems and design and tiny details--we need your help.
Our risks and challenges are in the operation and execution of a new concept. We will have a large staff. We will be open twelve hours a day, seven days a week. We will source directly from farmers and ranchers, cheesemakers and winemakers. Great products from great people are priced accordingly.
With the experience of our two restaurants, the phenomenal staff who will transfer to the Market, and the unique products that will procure and produce, we will build a viable business.
