Jim Rosenfield is the proprietor of the Marin Country Mart, Brentwood Country Mart + Montecito Country Mart– a shameless visionary, with equally shameless good taste– committed to dazzling/ serving/ elevating his communities by combining under one roof many of each region’s defining vendors + purveyors. He brought his brand of magic to Marin County, taking over the old + very tired Larkspur Landing, transforming it into the Marin Country Mart– a world of deliciousness anchored in outdoor life + conviviality.
Jim has a nose for sniffing out MAJOR TALENT…. The MCM has such cult-like epicurean vendors as: Miette, Rustic Bakery, Farmshop, Belcampo, El Huracho Loco, Three Twins Ice Cream, Space NK. And then he sprinkled in some of the most-loved small retailers, such as: Poppy Store, James Perse, Malia Mills, George, Unionmade– and soon to be Roberta Roller Rabbit + Calypso. But the greatest part of Jim’s formula is that he always incorporates neighborhood services that are the back bone of daily life– at Marin Country Mart there is a shoe repair, barber shop, post office, toy store, dry cleaning, ballet school and yoga studio. Everything about this formula is WINNING.
This concept is one of the great modern-day community center prototypes in America. Stay tuned for more!
