How does brunch work at SoFA Market?
Essentially, patrons have a chance to peruse the eateries that we have at SoFA Market and purchase your own combination of dishes! Each eatery has their own special brunch menu items. A good number of the items are intended to share with your party. The cost of dishes ranges from $8-$18.

All of our reservations begin at 10:00a and we do not reserve tables at later times throughout the day. We encourage our brunch patrons to spend the day with us sharing dishes, having drinks, lounging in the back patio, and walking around our beautiful SoFA District in downtown San Jose.

Brunch is open to the general public. We do have tables that are not reserved and available for self-seating.

Security Blanket

"She weaves in and out, parts exposed, parts hidden. In order to make a difference she comes out and she's brave. She laughs, she loves and she fights. Some days, in the quiet, she is vulnerable and she disappears into where it is comfortable. She reaches for the familiar and wraps it around her. She rests, recharges and then she's ready to go out again." - Roan Victor

Sofa Market Building

About the Market

We are right here.

 

when WE BOUGHT THIS BUILDING AT THE END OF 2011...

it had been vacant for more than a few years. There was little street life in the neighborhood perhaps with the exception of the San Carlos and 1st St corner. The idea of a communal space or a neighborhood market came about as a way to help activate a street devoid of retail businesses.

We envisioned a group of like-minded vendors committed to creating a vibrant urban scene and interested in locally-sourced and organic products to come together and make something out of this empty space. It’s been a long road.

Building in downtown San Jose, CA has never been easy and it wasn’t easy for us. The financial risks were huge and finding tenants for an unproven concept was especially challenging. But we have made significant progress, albeit slowly. We’re proud of the work we’ve done so far. We treasure the high quality cafes and eateries who make SoFA Market a destination. We believe in Downtown San Jose and the SoFA District in particular.
