New temporary seating to replace recently installed seats

Dear Friends of Public Market –

It came to our attention that a contractor replacing furniture in the Food Hall mistakenly supplied us with seating that is too short for the tables. On behalf of all of us with the Public Market, please accept our sincere apologies for this unfortunate mistake.

Please know that we have taken immediate action to address the situation and have installed temporary stools of the appropriate height so that customers have a comfortable place to sit and dine in the short-term.

In the longer-term, we are working with the contractor to correct the error: the permanent, custom-built stools will be installed as soon as the manufacturer can fabricate and ship these.

We greatly value our Public Market customers. As we’ve worked on renovating the Food Hall, realigning Shellmound Street for a friendlier environment and constructing the new parking garage and New Seasons Market, the community has been gracious throughout the transition to a better Public Market. We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding.

We look forward to continuing to make Public Market Emeryville a welcoming gathering place for everyone!
