Mercado San Agustin Opens Today

Posted By on Fri, May 13, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Various eateries and shops inside the new Mercado San Agustin have been opening quietly over the past several months, but this weekend is when the place and its incredible courtyard officially opens to the public.

The opening celebration starts today, Friday, May 13, and continues through the weekend with brunches, live music and a chance to check out the new cake shops, taquerias, snow-cone shops and other businesses calling the market home. You can also check out the impressive commercial kitchen with all its fancy new appliances and square miles of stainless steel.

We were told by a woman speaking on behalf of the market that Argentinean restaurant Casa Marita Restaurante Argentino will not be a tenant after all. An unnamed group is opening a restaurant in the space instead, but there's no word on what it will be or when it will open.

We've also heard that the Santa Cruz River Farmers' Market—held weekly on Thursdays—will be relocating to the market, but we're still working on confirming that.

There's more information on the market's website.
