With their sizable menu of perfected classics alongside local creative cuisine, the crew at Mendocino Market truly exemplifies what it means to be “sandwich artists.” The unassuming little shop in the heart of Mendocino is well worth planning a picnic around during your stay in town. Mendocino Market has everything you need for a peaceful lunch out in the fresh, coastal air.
Mendocino Market is the quintessential sandwich shop – a superior, healthy, and local alternative to fast food. Peruse the tidy aisles of snacks and you’re sure to find what you crave – be it healthy organic trail mix, an indulgent cookie, or unusually-flavored potato chips.
Mendocino Market is a fabulous solution for a family of picky eaters, a curious diner seeking local goodies, or a couple in quest of a private, romantic meal for two. The shop is open every day of the week, 11am to 4pm.
You’ll want to take your time reviewing the menu of hot, grilled sandwiches and cold, fresh sandwiches – but be assured, there is no wrong choice at Mendocino Market. Each sandwich is made with high-quality, fresh, and often local ingredients. The sandwich breads are baked fresh by Costeaux Bakery, and include two gluten-free options. The vegetables are always piled high and the meat is always premium (keep an eye out for a popular special: the local, grass-fed beef burger with gouda), and the toppings are guaranteed to be house-made and delicious.
Local favorites include the Grilled Wild King Salmon Sandwich with housemade pesto and the double-decker Market Club: a three-slice tower of veggies, cheese, fresh turkey and applewood-smoked bacon. In addition to sandwiches, the market offers a rotation of scrumptious housemade sides like chili con carne, grass-fed beef lasagna, and hummus with veggies. Vegetarians, fret not. There are always meat-free choices such as the plant-based Beyond Burger with all the fixings.
At the Mendocino Market you have the option of dining-in at the tables, dining-out in the garden with a gorgeous ocean view, or taking your meal on the go to find the perfect picnic spot. You won’t have to travel far to snag a good spot – Mendocino Market is in walking distance of Big River Beach and Mendocino Headlands State Park. Just BYOB (Bring Your Own Blanket) and let the Mendocino Market take care of the rest!
