Flora’s Market Run will officially open on Wednesday, April 14

When one door closes, another one opens.

Over the past few months, the team behind Prep & Pastry, Commoner & Co., and August Rhodes Market have been working diligently to open up Flora’s Market Run, which has taken over the spot that previously housed Rincon Market.

After having a good run with its soft opening, they’re happy to announce that the market nestled inside the building on East Sixth Street will officially open to the public on Wednesday, April 14.

Flora’s is a full-service grocery store, packed with pastry chefs, local products from Tucson businesses, and a restaurant. The restaurant side of the market will open in a few weeks and they’re currently hiring servers, back servers, hosts, baristas, bartenders, dishwashers, line cooks, and prep cooks.

The restaurant will offer 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.

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 is located at 2513 E. Sixth St. For more information, visit florasmarketrun.com.
