A report by Dana Eastland. In addition to their recently opened ~LOCAL MISSION MARKET~ and of course ~LOCAL MISSION EATERY~ and ~LOCAL’S CORNER~, Jake Des Voignes and Yaron Milgrom have now opened another venture, ~LOCAL CELLAR~. All local, all the time!

The new spot is a wine, beer, and spirits shop on 22nd Street, in a former corner store. All the products sold in the space are locally produced, including mostly local spirits and wines that are mostly from small producers, with a focus on food-friendly, low-oak or no-oak options. Think winemakers like Donkey & Goat, Broc Cellars, and Matthiasson. They’re still working out some of the stock, including the spirits selection, and eventually you’ll also find housemade tonics and mixers and other drink-related offerings.

Right now, they are very softly open. The space is serviceable but not yet completed, so be prepared for some rough edges this week. Hours are also subject to change: right now, they’re open daily 12pm-8pm, but that may change depending on when they are busiest. Eventually, you’ll also be able to order delivery from the cellar to Local Mission Market a couple of blocks away, which will allow for pickup anytime the store is open. 2801 22nd St. at Florida, 415-795-4022.
