I was pleased to learn ~331 CORTLAND MARKETPLACE~ in Bernal Heights is currently in its soft opening phase. Contained within the solar-powered building are six vendors (some Bernal neighbors), including: El Porteño Empanadas (organic Argentine empanadas); ICHI Lucky Cat Deli (a neighborhood Japanese deli specializing in market-fresh fish, sushi to-go, Asian sandwiches, Japanese salads, and sweet treats); Paulie’s Pickling (hand-crafted pickled vegetables featured in an array of sauces and relishes, sandwiches, and salads); and Wholesome Bakery (vegan baked goods), including freshly made DEZYS DRINKS and Sour Flour, (naturally fermented and hand-made bread); as well as organic fruit and vegetables by Della Terra Organics; and professional knife sharpening services by Bernal Cutlery. Neighbors, rejoice. The culinary marketplace will be open daily from 10am-7pm, with bakery hours starting each morning at 8am.
