Wholesale Produce Market Expansion

San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market

Project Overview

The San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market has been providing food to residents for 137 years. Located in the Southeast sector of San Francisco, the Market is an association of dedicated professionals, united at one distribution center, committed to being the Bay Area’s leading source of produce and produce information. The Market offers fresh produce to local and regional grocers, specialty and upscale retailers, restaurants, hotels, caterers, and convention facilities. It currently houses 30 produce wholesalers and distributors in 10 buildings over an 18-acre site—providing approximately 382,000 square feet of space. It employs 800 full time employees and has gross annual revenues of approximately $500 million. The City led the negotiation of a long-term 60-year master lease agreement for the City-owned land on which the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market operates, The full build out envisions a three-phase, $100.0 million expansion and renovation. The first building–901 Rankin Street—is now complete, with two new tenants, Good Eggs and Mollie Stones, set to occupy the full 82,000 square feet.

Background

Group at Produce MarketThe San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market offers space for Bay Area companies to provide food to residents for 137 years with more than half of thebusinesses in the Market operating for more than 20 years, one since 1888. The San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market at its current location in the Bayview was built in the early 1960s as part of a redevelopment project. The merchants at that time were moved from what is now the area near the Embarcadero Center, where they had been in operation since the 1870s.
