Mother’s Market celebrates grand opening

Story and photos by AMY SENK

After a year with no grocery store in Corona del Mar, Mother’s Market opened early Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 3049 E. Coast Highway. A small crowd of about 50 people gathered for a short ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring speeches and proclamations from local, state and federal representatives, and then shoppers streamed into the store and began buying salads, breakfast burritos and wheat grass juice shots.

“It’s going to be packed every day,” Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley said, adding that she’s been a longtime Mother’s shopper and maintained a plant-based diet since 1991.

The market does not occupy the entire building left vacant by Smart & Final, but construction has not yet begun of a planned CVS store for the remainder of the space. Carlow has said she would love for the market to grow into it in the future.
