Last June, I wrote about the upcoming Culver City Public Market. Although still under construction, the market is creating quite a buzz around town. Here is an update on the Culver City Public Market that should be opening sometime late this year.
Food, Food, and More Food
This indoor/outdoor market appears to be the centerpiece for dining in Culver City. The market, which will be 6,600 square feet of shopping space will also offer 11 dining experiences. Although the tenants for these dining halls has been rather hush-hush, we do know that there may be a pizza restaurant with an Italian master at its head and a wine bar.
What we know for sure is that the Jolly Oyster, a seafood legend, is coming. According to the developers, they are working tirelessly to “make sure that every vendor in the market is the vest best in their category.” Jolly Oyster fits this bill, offering the best shellfish in the region.
About the Citizen Publishing Company Building
The Culver City Market is located at the site of the Citizen Publishing Company building. This Culver City architectural landmark was built in 1929 and was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
Designed by architect Orville Clark, the building’s iconic façade is what sets it apart from others. The entryway is two stories tall and combines Beaux Art and Art Deco elements. However, once past the reception area and publisher’s offices, the rest of the building was quite industrial to accommodate the press and bindery.
Culver City Public Market Today
The redevelopment of this property will turn the publishing building into a place to eat, shop, and gather. The mission of the market is to gather together the best food, artisans, and entrepreneurs to the area. This will create a venue for residents to gather and enjoy Culver City from morning until well after midnight.
With the influx of new companies coming into the area, including Amazon, the Culver City Public Market will help remake the neighborhood. Plan to see it opening in late 2019.
