Grandview Public Market West Palm Beach Announces Grand Opening

The Highly Anticipated Market Opens Its Doors to the Public on Tuesday, February 20

Grandview Public Market West Palm Beach Announces Grand OpeningGrandview Public Market (GPM), the multi-vendor food hall located within the recently developed hotspot known as the “District” in West Palm Beach, opened its doors to the public on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The repurposed mid-century warehouse, measuring 14,000 square feet, will provide a unique dining and shopping experience from a wide range of local and national purveyors; complete with 15 vendors, an unique event space, and weekly curated programming for all ages.

GPM is fashioned on similar models across the country like NYC’s Chelsea Market and Krog Street Market in Atlanta; old buildings remodeled to create a thriving, community-driven town center with a focus on small and/or independent businesses.

“Trends have shifted from a culture where shoppers and diners are willing to drive from location to location to make purchases and dine out, towards a one stop solution with an authentic communal feel,” says Chris Vila, a Palm Beach native and founder of North Bar Holdings, a successful renovation and development company and the owner/operator of GPM. “West Palm Beach is experiencing growth as a community through development, the arts, and an influx of young professionals, and we wanted to be a part of it. For GPM we carefully curated the vendors, who are as excited as we are to be involved and doing business in such a vibrant, flourishing community.”

Vila saw the need for a modern market hall – a gathering spot for locals and visitors – which simply did not exist in Palm Beach County. While the concept of a communal market is not new, it’s the first of its kind in the area. “GPM will attract a variety of customers, who will be able to meet friends for coffee, pick up fresh prepared foods and local goods, purchase ingredients for dinner that evening, and even take a daily fitness class,” adds Vila.

Chris’ wife and business partner Kristen Vila oversaw the interior design at GPM. “While it was essential that each space have its own identity, it was equally important that the market feel cohesive as a whole. I wanted GPM to have a sophisticated and playful feel within the industrial setting and that the overall vibe is inviting, clean and bright,” says Kristen.

The 11 independent vendors are a mix of established local brands with loyal followings, including three concepts from nationally recognized New York-based hospitality company, Three Kings Restaurant Group, comprised of Top Chef alum Dale Talde, and his partners David Massoni and John Bush. The Three Kings will open Clare’s, a premier chicken joint which will also fulfill the market’s bar needs providing beer, wine and craft cocktail service, as well as The Corner, a Detroit-style pizza spot.

Additional vendors will include Celis Produce, a boutique farm-to-table grocer specializing in organic breakfast bowls, smoothies, cold pressed juices and organic produce; Olive Oil of the World, importers of specialty Italian products; Grace’s Fine Foods, a full-service hormone-free butcher offering an array of heritage breed meats, as

well as daily fresh sausage and sandwiches; and Rabbit Coffee, serving cold brew coffee, espresso drinks, teas, bagels and bialys every morning.  Filling out the line-up of culinary brands are Crema, purveyors of natural rolled

ice cream; Poké Lab eatery, using premium sustainable, seasonal and natural ingredients in Hawaiian-inspired poké and sushi-burritos; Zipitios, serving quick bites including tacos and pupusas; and Incubator, a rotating pop-up showcasing local talent which will debut with Ramen Lab Eatery, a Japanese ramen laboratory. Quinn will feature a curated selection of home goods and unique products.

Located within the GPM footprint, The Loading Dock and The Living Room – the first outdoor, the second indoor –  welcome guests to grab a seat, dine, imbibe, hang with friends, check e-mail with free high-speed Wi-Fi, and meet and mingle. Both spots will double as unique event spaces, perfect for formal or informal networkers, private parties, meetings and luncheons.

In addition to the culinary and shopping offerings at GPM, Studios Etc., a unique and transformative collection of boutique fitness studios founded by local fitness enthusiast and business owner Jacquelyn Quesada, will add a health and wellness element to the mix. The two distinct studios, LaBarre – a Barre studio focused on strength training and dance movements, and Momentim Cycle – a high-energy cycling studio focused on positive energy and motivation, are the first of its kind in West Palm Beach. The new Studios Etc. location will also offer exclusive lines of fitness accessories, active wear and wellness products to complement a healthy and active lifestyle. Daily classes will run from 6:00AM until 7:30PM.

GPM will host recurring weekly programming, with the focus on the community and bringing locals of all ages together. This will include live music on the weekends, game night, a farmer’s market with Lox Farms on Wednesday evenings, wine tastings and movie nights.
