A COMMITMENT TOOUR COMMUNITY
Client Spotlight - Michael Janis & The SF Market
Home to 26 independently owned merchant businesses, The SF Market is the region’s destination for the widest selection of fresh produce. The SF Market’s critical food infrastructure connects urban and rural food economies, moving hundreds of thousands of pounds of produce each day. The only non-profit produce market of its scale, The SF Market is uniquely positioned to grow impact across the food system, from expanding opportunities for farmers to improving food access for our neighbors here in the Bay Area. Market merchants lease space on The SF Market to be a part of the vibrant ecosystem of food business on the Market all in one convenient San Francisco location. A designated legacy business and a true San Francisco institution, The SF Market opened in its current location in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood in 1963 after moving from the market district to make way for the Golden Gateway and Embarcadero Centers.
The SF Market’s commitment to the City of San Francisco and the residents of the Bay Area doesn’t end there. When Mayor London Breed needed facilities for mass vaccinations sites Michael Janis (Executive Director and General Manager of the SF Market) volunteered the use of the Market and its high-volume capacity to create a space where community members can quickly and easily receive their vaccines.
From a February press conference, the Mayor expounded on how important the addition of the SF Market is to the health and recovery of the city: “With this site at the SF Market, we’re bringing access to the vaccine closer to people who live in the Bayview Hunters Point area and the southeast of the city. Throughout this pandemic, we’ve made sure our City’s response to COVID-19 is equitable, and we’re continuing that work by locating vaccination sites in the communities that have been hit the hardest.”
Since then, Sutter Health and other providers have been administering thousands of doses per day throughout the City and getting all of us a little closer back to normal. We’re thankful to have Michael Janis and the SF Market as clients of Karp Capital and we’re grateful for the work that they continue to do for the Bay Area communities. communities. pianist.
