We had the pleasure of catering an event in one of the classiest venues in the Triangle Area. Market Hall has long played host to Raleigh’s finest social events. Connecting history with quintessential southern charm, Market Hall is the culmination of everything we love about our city.

The History of Market Hall

The City Market opened in 1914. Through the 1940's, it served as the hub for central and eastern North Carolina farmers to display and sell their prized crops. The City Market was also an important gathering place. From politicians and the elite, to small business owners and farmers, networking was as integral to the market experience as purchasing fresh foods.

Eventually, big box stores and supermarkets superseded small city markets. During the 1990's the City Market was brought back to life as place for people to gather, socialize, and celebrate together. From business ventures to weddings, the City Market is once again central to the heartbeat of Raleigh.

Since its renovation, Market Hall has had the right blend of historic Raleigh charm and southern elegance. The event venue is 6,000 square feet, large enough to comfortably accommodate up to 450 people, depending on the type of event you are hosting. The loft above the main event space offers an additional 450 square feet (up to 45 people) for guests to prepare for their celebrations.
