There’s a Rori’s Artisanal Creamery, and plenty of vendors from local farmers’ markets

San Gabriel’s forthcoming food hall is moving along and nearly 100 percent leased. When it finishes some time in 2020, Blossom Market Hall will bring a total of 14 vendors to the neighborhood, including small-batch specialist Rori’s Artisanal Creamery, and a handful of popular vendors from Smorgasburg LA.

It’s a pretty huge two-story space with more than just food on the premises. The 9,000 square foot ground floor will feature the food hall and live performance stage, and the second story will utilize 2,000 square feet with a wifi lounge and community meeting space.

Husband and wife owners Chris and Nellie Tran received approval on Blossom Market Hall in late 2018. The entire project is part of the local revitalization project for downtown San Gabriel. Many of the vendors come locally from the San Gabriel Valley.

Eater spoke with Nellie Tran about the food hall’s tenants. Below are the vendors selections for Blossom Market Hall.

AK Fresh Roast

With a combination of American and Vietnamese coffee, AK Fresh Roast is the lone caffeine station at Blossom Market.

Angel & Mason is a beer and wine bar by newcomers and San Gabriel Valley locals, with craft beer and local wine on the menu.

Caribbean Gourmet

Yonette Alleyn is a regular at the Atwater Village Farmers’ Market and the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Farmers’ Market. Caribbean Gourmet will have a permanent stand at Blossom Market with oxtail stew, jerk chicken, and Jamaican patties.
