On October 24th, the landmark market, Bi-Rite, will open a new café kiosk in Civic Center Plaza. Bi-Rite approved food and beverages will be priced for every budget and the location adjacent to The Helen Diller Civic Center Playgrounds will make it a convenient gathering spot for workers and vistors alike.

“Creating community through food is why we exist,” shares Sam Mogannam, second-generation owner of Bi-Rite. “And we’re honored to be asked to be a part of the fun and togetherness that this project is going to create in the heart of the City.”

Bi-Rite first opened in the Mission District in 1940. The Mogannam family have been the market’s owners since 1964. With the influence from one of the sons, Sam who’s a chef, restaurant-quality food first became available for take-out. And with the Bi-Rite Creamery, they branched out with amazingly creamy ice cream and yummy treats. Their organic farms in Sonoma, Placerville, and San Francisco will provide the fresh fruits and veggies.
