Liberty Public Market Pantry
Liberty Public Market, the 22,000 sq. ft. artisan mecca set to open doors at 2816 Historic Decatur Rd. in Point Loma’s Liberty Station this October, announces an additional eight vendors to its roster of nearly 30 merchants and artisans. Dubbed one of San Diego’s most anticipated hospitality projects of 2015, the principles at Blue Bridge Hospitality have poured nearly $3 million into the mixed-use retail and commercial market, which promises to become the cultural epicenter of Liberty Station – a public arena for locals and tourists alike to embrace the city’s finest handcrafted food and signature specialty items.
Alongside the planned 30 purveyors, Liberty Public Market will also feature a shop called “Liberty Public Market Pantry” – an oversized space within the marketplace, operated by Blue Bridge Hospitality. The pantry will showcase a variety of local products from many different San Diego artisans, including local makers of jams, sauces, spices, oils and the like. Weekly demonstrations and classes will further activate the space, giving local merchants a chance to engage directly with the public, and a chance for local market-goers to meet the artisans behind these goods.
