Good Eggs to move into SF Wholesale Produce Market

Good Eggs, an online supplier of locally sourced groceries, has signed a lease for space in the Wholesale Produce Market in the Bayview, which will mean San Francisco's premier produce wholesale site will be fully leased when the company moves in next year.

The announcement, which came Monday, is part of an effort by Mayor Ed Lee to expand and grow The City's industry, distribution and repair facilities even as pressure from tech developers threatens established locales such as the Flower Mart in South of Market.

Good Eggs, along with a Mollie Stone's distribution center lease signed in October, will together make the expanded, city-owned site fully leased. A site expansion of 82,000 square feet will now be fully occupied.

The 18-acre Wholesale Produce Market, located at 901 Rankin St., comprises more than 300,000 square feet with 30 wholesalers. Currently it employs 650 people full time and has annual revenue of $500 million.

The site, whose wholesaler association signed a 60-year lease with The City in 2012, is undergoing a $100 million expansion and renovation expected to take 20 years. The space to be occupied by Mollie Stone's and Good Eggs is the first part of that expansion of renovation. When complete, 500,000 square feet of all new, modern warehouses will occupy the site.

The Wholesale Produce Market started in the 1870s in the downtown area and moved to the Bayview in the early 1960s to make room for development.
