Eater reports that Mission Bay is getting a huge new grocery and prepared foods emporium this fall. The new project is from Los Angeles-based restaurateur Tony Riviera of Primo Hospitality Group and will be called ~THE MARKET HALL~. It’s a similar concept to New York’s Eataly or Dean & Deluca, with high-end gourmet grocery products as well as prepared food items. Both are intended to fill a niche in the changing neighborhood, which has seen a great deal of residential development as well as increased numbers of workers in the UCSF complexes. The 10,000-square-foot project (nope, not tiny) will be housed on the ground floor of the Channel Mission Bay residential building.

Riviera hopes to open around Labor Day, with grocery offerings like meat, seafood, cheese, charcuterie, and produce, much of it sourced locally. In addition, there will be a 60-seat restaurant where Rivera will serve as the chef. In the prepared foods department, Eater mentions sushi and rotisserie chicken, to name just a few items. In addition to the San Francisco location, San Diego, Seattle, and Dallas locations are also in the works. 185 Channel St. at 4th St.
