Mosaic Market has now been open for over a month, with the grand opening on June 1st 2013. Here are a few shots I took back in May. Nav has added a whole bunch of other things since then – and has sandwich combos and more! He really seems to listen, and isn’t scared of offering things that you don’t typically find in a smaller market. Personally, I like the selection of beers – it means I probably won’t head down to the Monarch in Cherrywood much any more.
Mosaic Market is in the ground floor retail space of Mosaic – the luxury apartments by the traffic circle next to the food trailers by the Browning Hangar.
Why do I call it Mosaic Martek? Before the grand opening in June, the owners were getting the store ready and had a soft launch. Given that I share an office in Mosaic, I took the time to go in and take a few photos. I noticed the advertising banner said “Now Open Mosaic Martek” and posted it on the private Mueller Residents Facebook page. I don’t mean any offense by it – I think it’s a cute spelling mistake. Austin is full of them, and weird pronunciations.

- For pure convenience, there’s a gas station at 51st and Berkman which was renovated in advance of the market district’s arrival
- For snacks, there are the food trailers at the Hangar, though their hours are not as long as the market’s
- For organic food, you’ll have to go to Central Market on Lamar, or Monarch on Cherrywood. In a months’ time, the Mueller HEB will be open, though I’m sure many will prefer the ability to walk less far to get to Mosaic, with the bulk of Mueller residents in the previous sections living closer to Mosaic.
