Back in June we broke the news on the marketplace moving into Mid-Market with involvement from Scott Peterson and Ted Wilson of FINE & RARE. Some details of the project have emerged, and we’ve got an update on what’s going on.
First, the space is taking over the ground floor of the new development at 1028 Market Street and will be called THE HALL, after the building’s former incarnation as a billiards hall. There will be a variety of vendors (more on that later), serving food and offering retail options, and restaurateur Matt Semmelhack (AQ, TBD, Mélange Market, Bon Marché) will also be helping with the design and operations of the new project. The space will feature an indoor/outdoor design, with a large outdoor grill. Picnic tables and trees both inside and out will integrate the interior with the outdoor seating, and high, soaring ceilings will keep the space airy and open. The space will have a rustic, industrial feeling, with eclectic touches and different spaces for each vendor.
And about those vendors. First, Fine & Rare will of course be represented, serving sustainable seafood with local and seasonal ingredients. Cassia from the Fuki food truck will be serving Moroccan and Peruvian cuisine, with an emphasis on spices and seasonings. The Whole Beast from chef John Fink will be offering their meat-centric and sustainably raised meats and seafood, with an emphasis on heritage breeds and utilizing every part of the animal. Raj + Singh offer seasonal Indian food with choices for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike, as rice bowls, plates, and wraps. Little Green Cyclo will also be in the house, with soups that are not normally available on their food trucks, including a pho made with oxtail broth and other choices made from scratch. Dignitá will run a café with coffee, pastries, and snacks. And finally, Anchor Brewing will be running the beer and wine bar.
The space will be open all day, with some purveyors offering coffee and breakfast in the morning, and others focusing on lunch and dinner. The plan is to open in late September, and of course we’ll keep you updated as that gets closer. 1028 Market St. at 6th St.
