Opening: DeKalb Market Hall

Our patience is finally rewarded! Tomorrow, DeKalb Market Hall is opening at the Downtown Brooklyn City Point development.  This project has been in the works since 2011, with intermittent pulses of news, and now we’re finally getting a look at the space.

The sub-level markets hosts over 40 vendors, restaurants, and a Forager’s Market and a Trader Joe’s.  The interest anchor here is actually Katz’s Deli–well, “A Taste Of.”  This is the first location of the venerable institution outside the LES original.

Here is the complete line up: Ample Hills, Andrew’s Classic Brooklyn Bagels, Arepa Lady, Belle Cheese, BK Jani, Bread & Spread, BK Juicer, Bunker, Bunsmith, Cafe D’Avignon, Craft and Carry, Cuzin’s Duzin, Daigo Hand Roll Bar, Dekalb Taco, Dulcinea, Eight Turn Crepe, Fletcher’s Barbecue, Foragers Butcher, Foragers Market, Foragers Rotisserie, Forcella, Fulton Landing Seafood Market, Fulton Landing Seafood, Guss’ Pickles, Hana Noodles, Hard Times Sundaes, Home Frite, Jianbing Company, Katz’s Deli, Kotti Berliner Doner Kebab, Likkle More, Lioni Heroes, Nobletree Coffee, Paella Shack, Pierogi Boys, Pop Cake Shop, Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies, Two Tablespoons, Wiki Wiki, and Wilma Jean.

This is the first location for many of these concepts.  This will be Ample Hill’s 7th location, Nobletree Coffee’s second (the first just opened inside the WTC Oculus),  and the third for Cafe D’avignon, the small-format outlet for Pain D’avignon.
