The anticipated Williamsburg Market has officially opened its doors to the public. The new 15,000 sq. ft. market at 103 North 3rd St. is home to over 10 delicious vendors, each selected to offer guests a unique dining experience, ranging from old school fish & chips to Italian cheesesteaks. 

In addition to the array of dining vendors, Williamsburg Market offers guests an intimate Brooklyn industrial aesthetic heavily influenced by French architecture, designed by Gilles Depardon, Kathy Ogawa and Ananya Johri at Ogawa Depardon Architects. The space features a 360-degree brass and marble bar and a cozy dining room, as well as sushi bar seating, dining booths, high-top tables for casual dining and kiosks for each vendor. Both the market vendors and the design were hand-selected by Moonrise Ventures to ensure a casually-elevated dining experience.

“Williamsburg Market is a one of a kind, intimate food hall experience, complete with a 360-degree cocktail bar right in the middle of the action,” said James Whitfield, Vice President of Operations for Moonrise Ventures.

The selected vendors are led by renowned chefs, offering guests a wide range of food choices, giving the potential for something new and exciting for each visit.
