The lease is signed. Catt White and Dale Steele are officially on their way to opening the city’s first permanent public market. Think Seattle’s Pike Place or San Francisco’s Ferry Building. It’s about time, right? White, the mastermind behind Little Italy’s Mercato, is in the process of signing up vendors and working to redesign the warehouse space at 1735 National Avenue in Barrio Logan. Fund-raising is the duo’s biggest concern. They plan to sell memberships to the market, offer sponsorship opportunities, and even launch a crowd-funding effort via kickstarter.com to raise money. Keep track of the progress at sdweeklymarkets.com.

Rumor

Eat More Foie

So technically it’s illegal to sell foie gras on a menu in California as of July, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give it away. You didn’t hear it from us, but the new Arricia Italian Market in La Jolla is rumored to sneak some foie into your bag when you buy a $100 t-shirt.

Will Work for Beer

As beer becomes big business and breweries grow in size, quality control becomes more important than ever. Important enough, even, to make it a full-time job. Green Flash Brewing Company, Port Brewing, and The Lost Abbey have joined the likes of Stone Brewing Co., Karl Strauss Brewing Company, and Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits in building in-house QC labs to ensure their reputations—and their beers—remain unsullied. Not a bad department to work in, eh? We think more local breweries should jump on this trend. Now, who’s hiring?
