SANTA FE – Sale of most of the Market Station commercial building in the Santa Fe Railyard is planned to result in bringing a brewing company and a distillery tasting room to the former location of the Flying Star Café, according to city documents.
Also, a local restaurant will move in on the second floor where the building’s former owners once planned a bowling alley and lounge prior to going bankrupt, say the documents.
Rio Rancho-based Bosque Brewing Co. and Santa Fe’s Wayward Sons, LLC, a local small batch gin distillery, plan to share the former Flying Star location. With City Council approval, Wayward Sons would be allowed to offer limited package liquor sales of its craft gin.
The city owns the Railyard and maintains control of the land, and private buildings like Market Station, best known as the location of the REI store, have ground leases. The city bought part of Market Station — one of four units in the building — for office space years ago from the original Market Station developers
