Artist’s rendering of the proposed Barlow site

As Sebastopol’s Barlow marketplace nears completion, three new food-related tenants have been announced: Sub Zero Ice Cream and antiquarian bookseller Ben Kinmont. Sub Zero is a Utah-based ice cream chain that uses liquid nitrogen to make “instant” ice cream flavors for customers. Ben Kinmont is the nation’s foremost antiquarian bookseller specializing in 15th to early 19th works on gastronomy and related topics. Other food and wine tenants include Kosta Browne Winery, Guayaki Yerba Mate, Wine Gap Wines, Community Market, Taylor Maid Farms, Spirit Works Distillery, Village Bakery, Warped Brewing, MacPhail Family Wines, FEED Sonoma, La Follette Wines, Marimar Estates, Whole Spice and Gypsy Bay Laurel. It’s also rumored that Zazu’s John Stewart and Duskie Estes may be joining the Barlow lineup in the near future. Stay tuned for more details.

  1. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  2. What happened with the proposed Farmers’ Market.

  3. If they’re from Utah, they may not offer coffee ice cream.

  4. Glad to see a number of local businesses us Sebtownies love going in. And question mark to the randos and ice cream franchise from Utah. Hope it works out for everyone!

  5. Glad to see you support the Barlow and the wonderful businesses that will call this home. We are blown away by the quality of tenants we have signed up already. We’re about 80% leased already and now looking towards small businesses or startups excited to join the community. Be sure to keep in touch with us in the social media world by following @thebarlow707 on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram!

  6. Jacki’s business, although a franchise, is going to source from local farmers and producers to supply her ingredients and has been part of the community for four generations.

    Ben Kinmont is far from a book chain. His work and passion for antiquarian books is not easily replicated. You can find out more about his through his website:

  7. I know it sounds strange, but we were inspired that Jacki wanted to source from local farmers and producers to supply her ingredients. Jacki has been part of the community for four generations. After hearing her story, we wanted to support her entrepreneurial efforts.

  8. We love Screaming Mimi’s as well!

  9. Can’t imagine giving anyone but screaming mimi’s my business.

  10. Ice cream maker from UTAH ???

  11. Sebastopol’s shopping district has been stagnant for years. It will be great to have all the new shops drawing more people to town and consequently more business for everyone.

  12. ice cream and book chains coming in to compete with local shops up the street? might not be pretty.
