A trip to the City by the bay four and a half years ago turned into a love affair with San Francisco’s culture and European vibe.
Mario Rimet grew up in Gourgeon a small town in the northeast of France, where his family would source all their food from local farms.
“Bringing the culture of local sourcing and healthy eating was one of my goals when opening Le Marché Cezanne” .
After a two-year internship at La Fromagerie, Mario jumped in and started planning what would become La Marché Cezanne, a French-style market with an emphasis on quality, local grocery goods, and a sustainable business model.
Set on the bustling strip of 18th street on Potrero Hill, it is a bright charming market filled with the freshest locally grown organic produce, gourmet dry goods, French cheeses from La Fromagerie, meats, and deli items. You will find a mix of local and French brands such as Michele & Augustin, Isigny for the butter, La Fermière for yogurts, and Brioche Pasquier. With the help of Marie, a just- arrived-from-France employee, Mario creates meal kits such as a “Ratatouille basket” that you can buy with the recipe and intends to rotate new ideas regularly.
You can also grab breakfast at the coffee bar (Ritual Coffee) and try a pastry from Neighbor Bakehouse or have lunch with an in-house made sandwich or a daily soup.
Giving back to the community is a very important part of Le Marché Cezanne, so he works with local charities and donate food that gets turned into meals for various shelters throughout the city.
