Formerly an antiques haven, the recently transformed March is now a beautifully stocked white palace that satisfies the shop’s slow foodie patrons. The resulting makeover exceeds expectations with a smorgasbord of kitchen-, table-, and pantry-focused pleasantries.
Here, the essential ingredients:
Steel cookware accessories, courtesy of local Tommy Hicks (a store exclusive).
1 choice cut meat painting by Carrie Mae Smith (if your kitchen walls could talk, they’d say they’re hungry).
16-oz. house comestibles, a.k.a. your answer to housewarming woes. Elegant yet utilitarian EVOO and red wine vinegar, seasonal jams and nut butters, and heirloom tomatoes from Happy Girl Kitchen make gifting easy (if they make it out of your own larder).
1 bespoke table. Designed in collaboration with Matt Bear of Berkeley’s Union Studio, each one shows off Farrow & Ball-painted legs and a Carrara marble or butcher block top for a handsome chopping site.
A bushel of classic table accoutrements by Boxwood Linen.
Mix well and serve stylishly.
March, 3075 Sacramento Street, between Baker and Broderick Streets (415-931-7433 or marchsf.com).
