I’ve been wondering why I haven’t seen any construction going on at Emblem Market (at 736 Divisadero St.), which was slated to become the next BI-RITE MARKET. It ends up they are moving into the Divisadero Farmers Market space (550 Divisadero St.), next door to nopa. Owner Sam Mogannam is targeting the end of summer or early fall. Since there’s even more square footage in this new location, it also means they’ll be opening a Bi-Rite Creamery! Woot woot. As for what is going to happen to the Emblem space, Mogannam is undecided about whether they’ll rent or sell it.
