Gateway Project In RSF to Include Village Market

Members of the Rancho Santa Fe community have long awaited a replacement for a village market after the Stump's Village Market departure in October 2015. Soon, the Rancho Santa Fe Review reports, story poles will be up for the proposed site of the Gateway project which will include a 5,000-square-foot market. 

From the RSF Review:

"The poles will remain up on the corner of Via de Santa Fe and La Granada to encourage public input before the project returns to the Covenant Design Review Committee on Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 8:30 a.m. at the RSF Golf Club.

Developer Enrique Landa has been working on this project for three years and the project has gone through several iterations...

In working with the CDRC, Landa said they were encouraged to provide a market for the community as it became clear that Plaza de Santa Fe would not be able to replace the departed Village Market.

While no agreements have been signed, project consultant Jim Simmons said they are very interested in bringing in Stehly Farms Market, a main provider for Whole Foods Market...

An example of the 5,000-square-foot store can be seen at Stehly’s newest location in the Kensington neighborhood, 4142 Adams Avenue."
