Transfer Co. Food Hall delays opening, but announces a blockbuster list of new vendors

The food hall war is heating up in downtown Raleigh.
Transfer Co. Food Hall announced Monday a half-dozen new vendors and restaurants to join the project at 500 E. Davie St. The food hall, one of four opening in the Triangle over the span of a year, has redeveloped the 50,000-square-feet of the former Stone’s Warehouse and Carolina Coach maintenance shop.

Owners also announced the food hall will open in early 2019, a delay from a previously projected opening this summer or fall. Owner Jason Queen said the renovation ran into construction setbacks.

Transfer Co. has been in the works for five years, winning development and purchasing rights from the city in 2014.
When it opens, it will include one of the state’s best breweries, also announced earlier Monday, and several new restaurant concepts.

Previously, Locals Oyster Bar, Videri Chocoate, Che Empanadas were confirmed vendors in Transfer Co. Locals Seafood is opening a bar with the folks from Person Street Bar, and Videri is moving its wholesale chocolate-making to a new factory in Transfer, keeping the original Warehouse District spot for retail.
