The Market at Malcom Yards Open

August 16, 2021 by towersideadmin

The long-imagined The Market at Malcom Yards opened its doors to the delight of adventurous diners, eager neighbors, late-night couples and curious tourists.

Housed in the historic home of Harris Machinery Company, the repurposed hall retains some of its gritty past, but is now flooded with natural light highlighting shiny metal counters and a variety of comfy seating options. The innovative food hall, complete with nine stalls, a bar, and two event spaces, boasts a tap wall with 34 taps dispensing beer, wine, and non-alcoholic kombucha. This industrial-styled development, located near the Green Line and the University of Minnesota’s campus, joins a surge of new condo and apartment buildings in red-hot Prospect Park.

To contribute to an easy-to-enjoy outing, an efficient “Yard Card” handed to guests upon entry, can be swiped at any of the vendors, then dropped off on the way out. The Market is proud to replace tipping with an 18% hospitality surcharge in support of our commitment to provide a professional living wage for our team members.

Embracing the spirit of Towerside, The Market not only reflects the community it supports, but it’s a dining and cocktail innovation, an incubator to empower experienced and upcoming chefs, and a kitchen to house all the diverse flavors of the neighborhood.
