It’s the age of the food hall, and the latest is moving into Delray Beach.
Delray City Market is scheduled to open in fall 2019 on Southeast Third Avenue just south of the city’s busy Atlantic Avenue strip—and it won’t be small. At 30,000-square feet, it will be the base of a four-story building and feature roughly 30 vendor spaces.
Menin Development is expecting to break ground this fall.
“Delray City Market will also be home to highly curated up and coming chefs and food operators who may not have the finances to open their own restaurants in Delray Beach the opportunity to be on display and to serve their signature food to an audience of locals, South Floridians, as well as the millions of visitors who come to Palm Beach County each year,” CEO Craig Menin said in a press release.
In the last year, South Florida has fallen in love with the food hall scene—in Miami, food halls such as La Centrale, 1-800-LUCKY, St. Roch and The Wharf opened to much acclaim with the public clamoring for a space where they can try different foods, explore markets, and bring home new culinary favorites. In February, Palm Beach County was graced with its first food hall with the opening of Grandview Public Market in West Palm Beach.
