[ARCHIVED] Weekend Street Markets Slated to Open in San Anselmo starting on June 19th for "On the Avenue"


The Town of San Anselmo, in partnership with the San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce, will open parts of San Anselmo Avenue to create pedestrian-only access from Tamalpais to Tunstead Avenues and from the Pine Street parking lot to Woodland Avenue on summer weekends. This project, named “On the Avenue”, will take place from 3:00 P.M. on Fridays to 11:59 P.M. on Sundays, starting this Friday, June 19th. This project is designed to support local businesses by allowing them to expand beyond sidewalks and into the street while adhering to County Public Health Orders while allowing for better physical distancing to make outdoor dining and retail safer and easier for our businesses and community. 

On the Avenue provides a great opportunity for local retailers and restaurants to expand into the street to help them emerge from this difficult time. The Town is excited to welcoming shoppers and diners back every weekend throughout the summer, with a reminder that all visitors and businesses must continue to follow County of Marin guidelines regarding physical distancing, good hygiene practices, and face coverings. For the program to succeed, it will be evaluated closely to ensure the safety of businesses and the health of the community and may cease if protocols cannot be adhered to. San Anselmo businesses interested in participating are required to complete an application. 

Additional information including the application packet can be found here:

CREEKSIDE COMMONS RIBBON CUTTING - Friday, June 19th at 6:00 PM In conjunction with the launch of the On the Avenue project, the community is invited to a ceremonial ribbon cutting commemorating the opening of Creekside Commons. Creekside Commons is a new, temporary park created at 632-636 San Anselmo Avenue. This park represents phase one of the Reimagine Creek Park vision. In 2021, the concrete abutments built within the creek bed are scheduled to be removed at which time phase two of the vision will be undertaken. Look for informational project signage to be installed at the ’Commons’ in the near future. Attendees are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering and observe physical distancing during the ribbon cutting ceremony. A BIG NOTE OF THANKS goes out to Public Works Director Sean Condry and his staff for working tirelessly to turn the recently demolished site into what will become a welcoming, well thought-out space for our residents. Well done Sean and Co.!
