A year after it first opened, The Market, the grocery store housed in the Twitter building at 1355 Market St., is changing gears. According to the Chronicle, it will move to a more distributed, Ferry Building-like "food hall" format, paring down its less profitable grocery selection to make room for independent vendors serving to-go food.
SoCal chain Poké Bar has already signed on, and Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, Doughnut Dolly, Humphry Slocombe, Super Duper Burgers, Belcampo Meat Co., and Hapa Ramen are all in talks to take spots. Of the current vendors, Azalina's Malaysian, Project Juice, Blue Bottle Coffee and Nuubia Chocolatier will remain, while the store-run pizza, sushi, wine and beer counters will be farmed out.
The Market's planned project in the Lumina building (Main and Folsom) has been canceled, but it will still take the former Big Apple Grocery space at Polk and Clay, which will also shift to the food-hall format.
