Barons Market Opens Doors in North Park

| January 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

In the heart of one of San Diego’s most vibrant and artistic neighborhoods, Barons Market announces that its North Park location is now open to the public. With its first urban store, the family-owned grocery store strived to create a market with as much character and charisma as the people who live in the community.

“This store has been tailor-made to embody the distinct culture that makes North Park extraordinary,” says Barons Market Vice President of Marketing Rachel Shemirani. “We infused the character of North Park into every element of this store, from the parking garage to the ceiling, to bring the neighborhood a market that shares its passion for public art and local community.”

At the core of this effort, Barons collaborated with five artists local to North Park and surrounding neighborhoods to create three custom murals – two inside the store and one in the parking garage below.

Formerly a Fresh & Easy, the location at 3231 E. University Avenue becomes the market’s seventh Southern California location. Barons Market North Park brings more than 40 jobs to the neighborhood — for which it prioritized hiring locally.
