Alta Baja Market
New market in Downtown Santa Ana celebrating the flavors of Mexico, California and American Southwest.
A new market and deli celebrating the flavors of California, the American Southwest and Mexico is scheduled to open in downtown Santa Ana in beginning in late March, with produce, packaged food items, classes, and city tours rolling out slowly through June. Alta Baja Market will carry cheeses, bakery items, beer and wine, gifts and groceries from craft makers across these regions, many unavailable outside of their communities. The deli will serve unique cheese platters, cured meats from Electric City Butcher, seasonal produce from local farms and specialty sandwiches, tarts and snacks using the ingredients sold in the store.
But more than just being a boutique market, Alta Baja will also host regular pairing workshops, cooking classes, lectures and monthly pop-up restaurants highlighting local chefs and community members serving traditional foods. In addition to stocking food, Alta Baja also plans to work with local food/craft makers in product development, marketing and job training.
