Alta Baja Market, open in the 4th Street Market in Downtown Santa Ana, is the creation of Delilah Snell and Natasha Monnereau, who have invested many years into Downtown Santa Ana and the culture of the area.
Their “not-the-usual” boutique market sources one-of-a-kind items from above and below the Southwestern border, including goods, specialty foods and more from California, Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico. Delilah Snell joins us to fill our virtual shopping carts.
The market is a love letter to the unique fare and rare finds from above and below the border including kitchen items, dry goods, gifts, books, wines and beers, chiles, moles, heirloom beans, spices, fresh produce, aguas frescas from backyard fruit, and gourmet meats and cheeses from California, Arizona, New Mexico, Tijuana, Ensenada, Valle De Guadalupe and beyond.
Every week there are new meat items available from the Electric City Butcher located next door. Their incredible meat balls are stocked in the freezer case.
Micheladas are not simply the South-of-the Border version of a Bloody Mary. Alta Baja Market has a whole menu of Micheladas to sip and discover. They also stock the Michelada kit from Guelaguetza in Los Angeles. (A 2015 James Beard Award recipient as an America’s Classic.)
