Now Open: Bolsa Mercado in Oak Cliff (Photos)

Categories: First Look

The much-awaited Bolsa Mercado opened this week in Oak Cliff, just a few doors down from its farm-to-table mother ship Bolsa. This high-end grocery store and deli boasts shelves stocked with dips, sauces, honey, spices, root beer, local cheeses, breads, chocolates and countless other items. And for the boozers: 100 different kinds of hand-selected small-production wines and rare beers.

Bolsa Mercado serves from-scratch breakfast every day, including house-made kolaches, yogurt, fruit and doughnuts, plus a full coffee and juice bar. Lunch brings salads, sandwiches, cheese platters, charcuterie and desserts. There are also prepared meals from Chef Jeff Harris, including pizzas and in-house pastas, all in eco-friendly take-home packaging.

Space-wise, in addition to an outside patio area, there's a long communal table in the middle of the market and deep chairs and couches for a more lounge-ish affair. Most fascinating: Its hours are "sunup to sundown" seven days a week.

Here are some more photos. We'll see you there for lunch soon, no doubt.

Kerg’s Here,     Just wanted to wish you all a merry x-mas!  The new Kerg’s 4.0 is sweet, loving, and like his right wing leaning, Christian friends-likes to bake pies, drink coffee and engage in prayer circles.  The model is well within the guidelines of The Joe Tone standard, and is fully equipped with songs, like:“Jesus loves me”“Our God is an awesome God”An added bonus of the Kerg’s 4.0 is that it is translucent, biodegradable, and uses half the energy of Kerg’s 3.0…….it is also diatomaceous, retractable, and even gives whimsical, gentle thoughts while at company gatherings.  It still employees a “leave no trace” ethic. Note: The swiggin’ Budlight feature, while eatin’ chicken parmesan sandwiches has been disabled!  As has the FOODDICK option.

Love You All.-New Kerg.

How does  Bolsa Mercado complement/compete with the other grocery store on Jefferson (for the life of me I can't think of its name)?  They seem similar in concept/philosophy.

I love this place!   I wish they'd open one across from the DSO/Winspear!

this is precisely what we need. i'm glad oak cliff has it now. but this kind of small, grocer, beer/wine, bits store that needs to be in deep ellum, uptown and lower greenville.

when will people realize one of the main things that anchors a neighborhood is a small market? on most days of the week i get home from work, want to cook up some dinner and chill out.

being able to walk/ride bike to a small format market to pick up an ingredient or two makes it easier and the neighborhood better.

I live in East Dallas so am I even allowed on the premises? I read they have a wild boar tart!

Urban Acres? They're more of a co-op farm store. Local farmers, bakers and ranchers do the co-op thing there. 

Bolsa will sell more meals prepared from the restaurant. They have a coffee bar and lounging areas. And, the wine and beer is pretty extensive at Bolsa. 

Bolsa is more upscale high end goods, Urban Acres is more earthy. Both serve a great, unique purpose in the area. Maybe the owners from the two spots will chime in here and correct me if I'm wrong...

I would say you are right on Lauren. We don't make or grow anything right now at Urban Acres, instead we provide a place for regional farmers and local food artisans to showcase their ice cream, produce, eggs, milk... you get the idea. We work hard to connect our customers with the stories behind the food we offer.
