Open now is epic food emporium Liberty Public Market, which spans 25,000-square-feet in Liberty Station. This massive project from Blue Bridge Hospitality houses 27 artisan vendors — ranging from debut brick-and-mortar outposts from local food trucks to farmers market favorites’ first storefronts, expansions for existing businesses and brand new food concepts. The market’s footprint also includes ample outdoor space, including multiple dining decks and a 3,000-square-foot dog-friendly patio. Before we take you on a tour of what to expect when you visit, I would like to share with you some of the history on the Liberty Public Market.
History of Liberty Station
This place is grounded in military tradition, it was once the Naval Training Center and welcomed its first recruits in 1923. With the end of the Cold War, the Navy gradually wound down activity at the NTC and officially closed in 1997. Eventually the grounds transitioned into the Liberty Station we know today. With tons of shops, restaurants and art. The Liberty Public Market opened in 2016 as San Diego’s first 7-day a week public market. Similar to the Public Markets in major cities such as New York and Seattle, Washington, the LPM is home to some of the best local artisans around.
