Liberty Station Community Highlight
Liberty Public Market Issue #1: Beverages
The Yarbrough Group lives, works, and plays here in Liberty Station. Our goal is to reveal to our readers the very best of what Liberty Station has to offer. This week on the San Diego Real Estate BLOG, we present the first in our series of posts focusing on one of the newest additions to this all ready spectacular community: The Liberty Station Public Market
Liberty Public Market is a 7-day-a-week Public Market and Event Venue that offers the very best of what the Sand Diego region has to offer. Showcasing their wares in a rustic environment, local purveyors of fine prepared foods, beer, wine, specialty cocktails, produce, fish, pastas, desserts and pastries provide a vast treasure trove of culinary delights for you enjoyment. The market even features arts and crafts, a test kitchen, pop up dinners, and educational driven events.
Liberty Public Market’s goal is to be the central marketplace of both the region, and Liberty Station, where both the locals and visitors from far and wide can immerse themselves in the work of the best local food and beverage artisans that San Diego has to offer. They pride themselves on being a “forward-thinking marketplace and aim to offer accessible, engaging, and authentic experiences through use of every sense while exploring the market.”
A Very Special Thanks to LibertyPublicMarket.com for All the Inside Info.
Liberty Public Market will be the second brick-and-mortar location for The WestBean Coffee Roasters, which has a cool cafe in downtown San Diego. It will serve a variety of coffees and cold brews made from imported beans it roasts at its Mission Gorge Road roastery. The public market menu includes salted caramel and mocha lattes, as well as cappuccinos and a variety of teas.
Grape Smuggler will operate under the direction of industry heavyweight, and Blue Bridge Hospitality beverage director, Greg Majors (NYC: Tom Colicchio’s Craft Restaurant, Robert Bohr’s former CRU, Chef Marco Canora & Sommelier Paul Grieco’s former Insieme). The 800 square-foot concept will feature a revolving menu of by-the-glass offerings, daily tastings and flights. Major’s cellar will house approximately 5,000 bottles with 500 selections from all areas of the globe, and will give him an opportunity to pour some of the more interesting varietals that he acquires by producer, region or wine style. The wine shop also plans to tap into its surrounding market vendors to offer a changing menu of small plates.
San Diego’s consummate beer expert, Brian Jensen will launch a third outpost of his famed Bottlecraft boutique beer shop and tasting room. The 1,000 square-foot space will center around a tasting bar that stars 24 rotating craft beers on draft and 500 bottles of the best and hard-to-find local, domestic and international craft beer.

The History of Liberty Station
Liberty Station was formerly known as NTC (Naval Training Center). It was first opened as a Naval facility in 1923 and it was stopped being used as an active military base in 1997 when it was designated for closure under the terms of the Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990. In May of 2000, the Navy turned the property over to the City of San Diego. Liberty Station is a collaboration between the City of San Diego Redevelopment Agency and The Corky McMillin Companies. Part of Liberty Station is designated as an Office District – this area covers 22 total acres and allows for a maximum of 380,000 square feet of office space. Over the years the buildings have been painted different colors. The original color was unpainted stucco which was a warm beige. During World War II the buildings were all painted dark green to make them less visible from the air especially at night. Eventually, they were painted a yellow/gold color and now as the buildings are being restored – they are being painted to reflect their original color a warm coral/beige.
