As SFist reported last week, this week marks the transformation — perhaps temporary — of the former Bon Marché space on mid-Market into a multi-vendor food hall, banking on the daytime success of next-door neighbor The Market and the need for new lunch options for area workers. Hoodline brings word of the first vendor, Minnie Bell's Soul Movement, the soul food pop-up from San Francisco native chef Fernay McPherson.

The latest menu consists of three sandwich options based on McPherson's family recipes: a hot-sauce-brined, rosemary fried chicken sandwich; a "smothered" tri-tip sandwich; and a vegan sandwich with hummus and sauteed mushrooms. Also she's serving a potato salad, a green salad, a grain salad, and a stew of the day, which on Tuesday was chicken and black-eyed pea. (Check out Minnie Bell's catering menu here for ideas of what's to come.)

McPherson is a part of local non-profit food-business incubator La Cocina, and Bon Marché owner Matt Semmelhack says that until a deal can be struck to sell the place outright to a new operator, he's looking to fill it with five or six vendor like Minnie Bell's, so that it can become an all-day food hall.

Meanwhile, over at The Market, another new pop-up has arrived: the aforementioned Doughnut Dolly. That pop-up is continuing this week from noon to 5 p.m., with savory (pulled pork!) and sweet doughnuts, in advance of a more permanent stall opening in the space in the next week or two.

Minnie Bell's Soul Movement - 1355 Market Street between 9th and 10th - Open weekdays (for now) 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
