After an extensive restoration following an electrical fire nearly a year ago, Rincon Market is finally set to open Monday, June 30th. Customers will be greeted with more than just a new look.
According to Rincon Market’s Kelly Abbott, who owns the 85-year-old grocery store with her husband Mark, Rincon will be not only be keeping the eclectic favorites that have made it a daily destination for thousands of Tucsonans, but they’ll be adding pizza ovens, a full-on sushi bar with dedicated chef, and a beer and wine bar.
Shoppers will also see a greater selection of meats, cheeses and fresh produce through a new partnership with former Rincon Market owner Paul Cisek, who currently runs the Tubac Market and Downtown Tucson’s forthcoming Johnny Gibson Downtown Market. “We’re raising the bar on that end,” Abbott said. “We figured we had to be better with the grocery part of the market.”
Abbott says that for now, the pizza may be geared more towards students and others later in the evening, and the sushi may take a little longer to get rolling.
