The Cordish Companies is excited to unveil additional details about The Market, located at the heart of the newly revitalized waterfront building. Covering 30,000 square-feet, The Market at Waterside District will feature ten curated culinary and beverage experiences housing some of the best local, regional and national brands.
The Market’s modern, industrial shipyard feel will have an expanded skylight and glass elevator to the second level. The communal hub will feature a stage for live music, festivals and family attractions, as well as a giant LED screen perfect for sports watching. The Market will be Norfolk’s resource for one-of-a-kind food and beverage experiences enjoyed in a comfortable gathering space, or to grab on the go.
The Market will feature a diverse array of culinary and beverage experiences, including:
● The hub of The Market is Starr Hill Market Bar , a beautifully designed custom bar with over 48 craft beer options on tap. Starr Hill Market Bar will celebrate Virginia craft beer and will debut signature craft beer seasonally throughout the year.
