The neighborhood begins to take shape

As the Rincon Hill, South Beach, and Yerba Buena districts take shape—enter The East Cut?—the rapidly growing neighborhood will get its first full-fledged supermarket this Saturday.

Marin-based Woodlands Market will open at the ground-floor of the Lumina building at the corner of Folsom and Main Streets. Boasting 9,500-square-foot retail space, the store will feature natural wood, stone, and metal art, in addition to heaps of (pricey) organic offerings.

Woodlands Market has been around for 30 years, with two other stores in tony locales—one in Kentfield and a second location in Tiburon.

This is a boon for the Rincon Hill renaissance, which has seen an explosion of residential growth, but comparatively little in the way of amenities and local color.

We would be remiss not to point out other choice, albeit smaller, food stores in the area. Most notably, Moscone Liquor & Deli at 689 Folsom (some of the friendliest workers in the city!) and Gabby Cafe at 201 Harrison are also choice spots in the area.
