“Flora’s Market Run” to bring groceries & a restaurant into Rincon Market’s old spot

When one door closes, another one opens.

The team behind Prep & Pastry, Commoner & Co., and August Rhodes Market are moving into the spot that was previously housed by Rincon Market.

Once everything’s complete, Flora’s Market Run will be nestled inside the building on East Sixth Street, and offer a full-service grocery store and restaurant.

Plus, if you’re not in the mood to shop around, Flora’s Market Run will have a restaurant, too. They’ll have counter-service for breakfast and lunch, table-service for dinner, and a menu that’s got the likes of sandwiches, salads, pizza, chicken, and salmon.

Hey, but what about the dough?

August Rhodes will be the primary baker at the new location, and in addition, will still be providing its bread to both Prep & Pastry locations, Commoner & Co., and several other restaurants around the city.

On the shelves, you’ll find some familiar local products available for purchase as well.

In a time when “keeping it local” is more important than ever, the market is in the process of partnering up with several Tucson companies to offer a helping hand and exposure.

An opening date has yet to be announced, but in the coming weeks, you’ll notice some changes happening inside and outside of the historic building.

Rincon Market had been in the spot since it opened in 1926, but the store shut its doors in early June after the tenants failed to pay the rent — all of which was according to the notices posted on the store’s windows.

Flora’s Market Run will be located at 2513 E. Sixth St. Follow Prep & Pastry on Facebook for the latest.
