The Umami Mart pop-up shop has recently sprouted up in sunny Oakland, California. Originally a webshop and blog, the Umami Mart is now trying its hand at delivering goods to people first hand, and the results so far have been very good.

The Umami Mart pop-up store was designed by Anders Arhoj. He used a simple, clean and modern approach when working on the project, and this matches the similarly simple aesthetic of the merchandise the store sells. The Umami Mart sells Japanese kitchenware and bar accessories. All have a beautiful modern design, and they also perform their cooking function very efficiently.

Pop-up shops like this are a great way for popular Internet stores to transition into the retail market. They are temporary and can help business owners gauge interest and plan for more permanent future expansion.
