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.
