Rejoice, Raleighites!

You’ve been waiting with bated breath but, finally, the day is here: Morgan Street Food Hall in downtown’s Warehouse District will open its doors to the public this month, with a grand opening celebration slated for July 23.

The 22,000 square-foot converted warehouse will feature 20+ food vendors and feature goods from 17 retailers, running the gamut from Asian to Indian to South American cuisine, to flowers, tea, and handmade candles and soaps.

As well as virtually limitless options for dining and shopping, the Food Hall features two bars—The Arbor, straddling an indoor/outdoor patio space, and Auntie Betty’s, a small outpost for gin and cocktails.

Morgan Street Food Hall will be open Sunday through Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Individual vendors’s hours may vary.
