Marin Country Mart: A Retail and Food Destination

Marin Country Mart, designed by BCV in collaboration with owner Jim Rosenfield, was recently written up in the SFGate as a hot new destination in the Bay Area!

Marin Country Mart is a re-visioning of an existing retail center, redesigned with a focus on community gathering spaces, and featuring exceptional food purveyors, local services and independent boutique shops.

Inspired by Marin’s rustic charm as well as the dynamic coastal location, the 168,000 square foot retail center renovation includes twelve buildings on 16 acres, with a focus on the five “core” buildings and the series of public spaces these structures create.

In addition to the outdoor dining in the fountain plaza, and the plaza housing the redwood children’s play structure, the pedestrian promenade on the south side of the site is a bold move that enables visitors to connect with views of San Francisco Bay and Mount Tamalpais.

BCV also designed Belcampo Meat Co. and Diesel Books in the center. Stop by and visit this exciting destination!
