Eater National says Pine Street Market is one of the 17 most anticipated food halls in the country.

The publication says “the food hall boom is in full swing” and a pair of upcoming Portland projects made its “most anticipated list.”

What it said about Pine Street Market, which will include vendors such as Barista, Hopworks Urban Brewery and others:

Old Town’s historic Baggage and Carriage building is getting an extreme makeover thanks to developers Rob Brewster, Dave Davies, and Jean Pierre Veillet, with Feast Portland co-founder Mike Thelin acting as “culinary curator.” The 9,500-square-foot project will house several food and beverage vendors with shared communal seating and a focus on affordability and approachability. Confirmed tenants include craft brewer Hopworks Urban Brewery; charcuterie specialist Olympia Provisions; local craft coffee mini-chain Barista; and a bread and pastry shop from artisan baker Ken Forkish. The latest intel from Eater PDX says additional tenants will likely include “a pair of local Asian food concepts, as well as a popular dessert spot and a seafood joint run by a nationally known chef.”

The other hot button food hall is the James Beard Public Market:

In the making for over a decade now, plans for the long-awaited James Beard Public Market are finally taking shape; renderings from Norwegian design firm Snøhetta — which helped design the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in NYC — were released earlier this summer. Named in honor of the Oregon-born culinary icon, Eater PDX describes it as a “year-round, indoor-outdoor, waterfront-adjacent stage for Portland’s finest local food and drink.” It will include “stalls for at least 90 vendors, plus teaching kitchens, event space, and full-service restaurants.” Says Eater PDX: “The market, which will flank the Morrison bridge like two wings, will no doubt be a new iconic landmark downtown: guest seating will spill out onto the sidewalk when the sun is out, market stalls will line a pathway to the outdoor market arena. Inside there are soaring, exposed-steel-supported natural wood ceilings. There will even be rooftop terrace access, complete with views of the Willamette River and Mt. Hood in the distance.”

Pine Street Market is expected to open in fall 2015; the James Beard Public Market isn’t expected to launch until Spring 2018.
