Plans for Airline farmers market unveiled at groundbreaking
Houston super-chef Chris Shepherd will develop a new food concept for the Houston Farmers Market, the 18-acre culinary and entertainment development on Airline Drive near the Heights.
Shepherd — the James Beard Award winning owner of One Fifth, UB Preserv and Georgia James — and the owners of the property provided new details on the farmers market project Tuesday during a groundbreaking ceremony on the site at 2520 Airline Drive.
“As the country’s fourth-largest city and leading culinary capital, Houston is long overdue for a world-class market,” Todd Mason, managing principal of developer MLB Capital Partners, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to reinvigorate this local landmark into an experiential destination for both Houstonians and visitors to enjoy.”
