The gourmet Blue Fog Market at California and Divisadero may have closed, but the new specialty market taking its place, ~CAL-DIVIS MARKET, DELI, AND WINE MERCHANT~, will keep the artisan vibe alive. Jerad Ruhl, previously at Ottimista-Enoteca Café, and his wife are behind the latest incarnation. Blue Bottle Coffee will continue to be sold, along with pastries and treats made by Mission Beach Cafe, plus craft beverages, beer, small production wines, and artisan spirits for retail sale. Future plans include housemade soups, sandwiches, in-house pickling and curing projects (like cured salmon and salumi), locally sourced cheeses, breads, and local products. They’re starting slowly right now, so just expect coffee and limited retail purchases for now. Open daily 8am-8pm. 2794 California St. at Divisadero, 415-440-1295.
I was sorry to read the news in the Scoop that ~A.G. FERRARI FOODS~ has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. According to a post on their Facebook page, a few stores will be closing soon, but none were named. Update: Grub Street reports “A rep from A.G. Ferrari writes in to say that despite the bankruptcy and the possibility of more store closures, none of the S.F. stores will be closing.”
