“Grand Opening March 5th 2014 at 9 AM”
The long awaited local market is becoming a realty this Wednesday, as Vintage Grocers opens it doors at the Trancas Country Mart. It has been almost 3 years since Trancas Market closed its doors in August 2011 leaving West Malibu residents with Pavilions as its only near by grocery. Pavilions’ lack of parking, long lines and less than desirable food selections added insult to injury; forcing many in Malibu to shop outside of the community.
This Wednesday’s Grand Opening will be a true celebration for all of Malibu as Market Director Eric Fuchser (former Market Director for Bristol Farms) fulfills his dream of opening a fabulous gourmet grocery. I met with Eric a little over a week ago and got a tour of his”work still in progress ” and I peeked in yesterday to see his progress. The store is beautifully designed with polished concrete floors, dark wood appointments and many gourmet and organic offerings to please the fussiest shopper.There will also be an open cafe in front of the store where one may enjoy a coffee, pastry or sandwich. I am also excited about the Pizza oven and great wine section featuring many local vineyards!
Vintage Grocers is a great addition to the rural but sophisticated West Malibu lifestyle.
