Food hall to host grand opening on Saturday, December 2, 2017

MEMPHIS, TENN. (November 20, 2017) – – – South Main Market, Memphis’ first food hall concept located in the historic South Main Arts District downtown, announces three new vendors to its current roster, bringing the total to seven. While the market is open, it will celebrate an official grand opening on Saturday, December 2, 2017.

Local up-and-coming chef Cole Jeanes is the chef and creative mind behind the three new concepts: Coco, Kinfolk and Magnolia. Jeanes studied at L’Ecole Culinaire and trained at Acre Restaurant and Hog & Hominy. He helped open Porcellino’s Craft Butcher and revamped the menu at Silly Goose.

“I’m thrilled to have my first restaurants in South Main Market,” Jeanes said. “Food halls are enticing and affordable options for chefs who want their own space but perhaps not the risk of a stand-alone restaurant. Plus, I’m able to explore entirely different concepts at once.”

The South Main Market is located at 409 South Main and, at capacity, will have 14 vendors. Hours will vary per vendor and may fluctuate.

Pop-up vendor spaces are available for the December 2nd grand opening as well as for Friday, November 25th’s Trolley Night by calling Rebecca Dyer at (901) 341-3838.
