Houston Farmers Market announces new tenants, concepts
A year after the groundbreaking of the redevelopment project, the new Houston Farmers Market has announced new tenant details, including a meat market and two restaurants from Underbelly Hospitality, and the hunt is on for a few more restaurants to represent Houston’s food scene.
“The goal for food here is to bring a snapshot of the city,” said Underbelly’s Chris Shepherd, who is also serving as a consultant to MLB Capital Partners on the project. “This can be a place where you can see all of the city right here.”
The project is nearing completion of several key new buildings and revamped open-air market spaces that will offer over 130,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and vendor space. Dozens of returning produce vendors will be able to set up shop alongside quick-service restaurant concepts leading up to a one-acre plaza. The next phase of the project will offer another 100,000 square feet of improved space.
