A New San Diego Public Market Set To Debut In North Park

May 23, 2017

Opening in North Park this Memorial Day weekend is DAM Park, a 6,000 square-foot public market inspired by the city of Amsterdam that will host a rotating selection of local food and retail vendors, including incarnations of Le Parfait Paris, Buona Forchetta and Mama Made Thai, as well as two bars, a salon and an event space.

Founded by Jad Charafeddine, Mark Hoffman, and Guillaume Ryon, DAM Park will offer two-stories of space filled with area vendors, including a new outpost of founder Ryon's Le Parfait Paris French-inspired bakery, as well as offerings from Buona Forchetta and Mama Made Thai. There will also be a salon called Da Boot Bar on the ground floor, as well as a bar constructed from a boat hull that will dish out beer, wine and cocktails to be enjoyed while perusing the space. Over the summer an upstairs bar called Daarboven will open, which will offer speakeasy appeal and frequent events.

To celebrate its launch, DAM Park is hosting 4 days of live entertainment, food vendors, drinks and more over Memorial Day weekend (May 26-29), with a portion of proceeds going to benefit the non-profit Angels for Angels, which supports community-building and social projects all over the world.

DAM Park is located at 4321 Illinois Street in San Diego's North Park neighborhood. For more information, visit damparksd.com.
