Local gourmet food hall opens today in Downtown Waco

Market on 8th, an open-air gourmet food hall, is opening directly across from the Magnolia Silos today on 8th Street in downtown Waco. The food hall features local culinary businesses that appeal to the folks living downtown and tourists alike.

Culinary entrepreneurs and longtime friends Theresa Edwards and Cheryl Urbanovsky had a dream to open their own coffee and fudge shop. As they worked to make that dream a reality, their vision evolved to a food hall concept that will include other local gourmet businesses.

Market on 8th includes GiGi’s Fancy Fudge, TX Grounds Coffee, Gathering Board (charcuterie), Hometown Bakery (gourmet sandwiches, salads, etc), and more. In addition to take-out, the venue features an outdoor, covered dining area in a casual, nostalgic setting.
