Coffee Bar, Blended Drink, Produce Section, Market Display

Move-In Weekend marked the opening of Residential Dining’s new Tenaya Market & Eatery! Located within the new San Joaquin Villages, the full-service market combines convenience store staples with grocery store items such as fresh local produce, eggs, milk, pasta, and more. In addition, Tenaya Market & Eatery boasts a coffee bar with an exterior walk-up window so you can grab a blended mocha or freshly-made crêpe on your way to class. Or, you can step inside and order your coffee at the counter while perusing the bulk bins of nuts, trail mix, and candy. The market provides a one-stop shop for anyone looking to grab a snack, meal, or ingredients to whip up their own meals at home, which is especially helpful for anyone living in the nearby apartments. No time to cook? The market offers ready-made salads and sandwiches and will soon be offering a selection of hot soups and made-to-order hot entrees such as rice bowls, banh mi sandwiches, and ramen. We look forward to welcoming you soon; regular hours* (listed below) begin on Monday, October 2nd!

Tenaya Market & Eatery is open from 10:00am-11:00pm daily.
*Hours are subject to change.

Hi Debbie, thanks for your question. You may view your meal plan swipe balance by registering to view your access card information at the following site: Once you register, you will be able to view all of your swipe transactions on a weekly basis, and we believe even on a daily basis. Cheers, Residential Dining

Access to the market?

Hello, I'm a graduate student living near by Tenaya Market. I tried my access card to the door of Tenaya yesterday and it wouldn't let me in. Is Tenaya just open for students living in the resident hall?
