Readers have been asking us for a status update on Stehly Farms Market's new grocery store and eatery in the works for Kensington. This will be the locally-owned farm's third San Diego market, joining outposts in Bay Park and South Park, and largest project to-date.
The 5,000-square-foot market, in the base of the newly-completed Kensington Commons complex on Adams Avenue, will likely open by late January or early February, says Andru Moshe, general manager of operations.
The full-service grocery will include a local produce-powered juice bar, a significant cheese and specialty food area, and beer and wine retail; Stehly Farms is also working on a license to be able to serve wine and beer on-site.
A 30 to 50 seat eatery, with both indoor and outdoor seating, will offer made-to-order salads and sandwiches and a hot line of prepared food.
Moshe says the farm intends to open additional locations throughout San Diego and beyond, including another 5,000-square-foot market that may launch in North County by Spring 2015.
