Everything from homemade mochi to Equator Coffee drips, Mainland Market Co is a serious go-to in the Outer Richmond.
Stocking fresh produce daily, the team over at Mainland Market Co has taken the chic to the outer reaches of the Richmond. Catering to a wide variety of shoppers, their open air market is highly curated with the freshest (and less bruised) fruits, veggies, and more. Described as the “99 Ranch and Whole Foods love baby, it’d be Mainland,” after years of management changes, remodels, and menu revamps — locals believe this mom and pop shop have gotten their head on straight.
Others describe the store as a “hapa haole east-west hybrid market” — bringing together the flavors of American and Asian palettes. A common buy from the neighborhood favorite, the “Longevity” vegetarian Banh Mi sandwiches for $6 is a repeat buy with a variety of veggies and eastern fruits within the sandwich, you’ll be feeling energized before you take the next bite.
Have you been? What is your fave part about the market? For us, it’s the drip coffee by Equator, adding just a touch of local and small business to an already small business — and starting at 7:30 a.m., this collide very much excites us.
