Our fridge is stocked with something special for every beer lover! Also known as Driver’s Cool Ship, our beer selection is your go-to for rare and hard to find brews, and a place to meet fellow beer geeks. This autumn, we’re excited about the diverse selection: from Oktoberfest styles to Ciders; from cold weather Stouts to sunny Sours; from super local to hard-to-find beers. Of course, we want to include Hard Seltzers and Canned Cocktails – they’re delicious, and our customers love them. Find your fall beers right here!
The RiseUp! 94965 Foundation raised $52K for Dr MLK Academy in Marin City, enough to secure funding for the school’s Garden Program. The school year will start with Garden Coordinators, and the program is saved! This is a cause that is close to our hearts, in a community that we love. It’s vitally important to us at Driver’s Market that children understand where their food comes from, see how it’s grown, and to get a hands-on learning experience! Along with support from all of you, Driver’s Market matched $5,000 in donations. Thank you!
The opportunity to build a catering program at the Market brought Carolyn King to Driver’s in 2018. A masterful chef, Carolyn has been an integral part of the team from the start, handling multiple roles including menu development and catering manager. “I love the creative outlet that catering provides, getting to work with organic produce and so many specialty products,” she said.
Marissa Cruz has been with us since 2016, and is an important part of the Driver’s family. She was working as a business banker at Wells Fargo when she got to know Paul Geffner, a co-owner at Driver’s. Paul was a client of Marissa’s, and the two became friends. “He would always ask me when I would quit the bank and come work for him,” she said. Outside of work, Marissa is an award winning outrigger paddler, competing in Hawaii, California, and beyond.

Much of what we carry at Driver’s is made by small teams of artisans who are passionate about their craft. Our vendors work hard to make excellent food, and they work just as hard to get their goods on grocery store shelves. We love to see them win Good Food Awards, because they really deserve the recognition. We proudly stock award winners here at Driver’s, many of them local – look for the blue Good Food seal on our shelves! Read on to see this year’s winners.

Our bodies use minerals for many functions, including bone, heart, and brain health. Minerals are also key to hydration as well as enzyme and hormone production. While theoretically we get most of the minerals we need by eating a wide variety of foods, in some cases a healthcare provider may suggest a mineral supplement. Learn how you can achieve your wellness goals with a look at new products in our supplement department.

Did you know that the mural gracing our building is a reproduction of a woodcut print by Sausalito artist Tom Killion? Tom’s books of illustrations include the acclaimed 28 Views of Mount Tamalpais and his latest, California’s Wild Coast.

Here are the local titles that we currently carry at the market, plus a few of the writers reading from their work!
