Grand Fare Market To Rise From the Dead

The troubled Oakland market will return next month.

It was shocking when Doug Washington and Freya Prowe’s (Town Hall, Salt House, Anchor & Hope) ambitious Oakland market Grand Fare closed in November after being open for less than two months. The circumstances surrounding the closure were all very mysterious, with Washington and Prowe blaming operation costs as "simply too much" to keep it going. Now, though, news comes that Grand Fare will rise again — but with a few changes, the biggest of which are simplifying the layout with fewer products, lower prices, more seating inside and out and a bigger focus on prepared foods. Washington is also planning a parklet out front, potentially where he could park his 1948 Airstream-style trailer serving housemade pastries, Linea coffee and Humphry Slocombe ice cream. The market is expected to reopen in April; stay tuned for more details.
