Australia's MRKT SPACE Cafe To Open San Diego Location

September 5, 2020

Heading to San Diego directly from Australia is MRKT SPACE - a combination cafe, bar and gourmet market opening later this year in Encinitas.

MRKT SPACE is an upscale convenient store, bottle shop, cafe, bar and all-day restaurant concept first started last year in the Leighton Beach area of Australia. The San Diego branch will occupy the 3,100 square-foot ground floor unit at the new The Beacons mixed-use development on Highway 101 in Encinitas. The concept will serve an all-day menu of Italian-inspired dishes, like breakfast, sandwiches and charcuterie boards, as well as bakery items such as pastries, cakes, croissants, biscuits and muffins. The market will sell a large variety of organic and vegan items, including  produce, fresh baked bread, eggs, cured meats and cheese. There will also be a full bar with wine, beer and spirits, which will also be available to-go from a luxury bottle shop. The San Diego location will be operated by Encinitas local Matthew Power. 

The San Diego outpost of MRKT Space is expected to unveil by year's end at 774-782 North Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas. For more information, visit and check out the draft food menu below.
