Railway Heights Market Hall, the long-awaited food hall packed with restaurant stalls and other local vendors, has officially opened its doors.

A representative for the food hall at 8200 Washington Avenue tells Eater that it is currently in its “soft-opening” phase. The dog park, beer garden, and grocery store planned for the development are set to follow in the coming months. As previously reported by Eater, the food hall has been in the works since at least 2018, and has attracted a slew of locally born restaurants to its stalls.

Railway Heights Market Hall is a project of Nomads Hospitality, the minds behind other Houston food halls including Conservatory, which kicked off the trend and boasts that it was the first food hall to open in Texas, and the much-lauded Bravery Chef Hall in Downtown.

The dining line-up for Railway Heights is seriously stacked. There’s Pierogi Queen, the beloved League City destination for potato-stuffed dumplings, and BOH Slice, a pizzeria from chef Ben McPherson. Brazilian cuisine, a spot called Drunken Pho, and Japanese stall Sandos will also open at the hall, along with spicy seafood boil purveyor Heads & Tails. The Hall will also be home to multiple bars, the first of which is a wine bar called Puncheon. Separate spots, including a coffee bar and the SitBar Dog Park Bar, are still in the works.

In addition to the restaurants and bars, Railway Heights Market will also be home to a variety of retail vendors, ranging from Honey from Hive Bee Farm to Purum Nut Butters and a butcher shop called Legacy Meats.

Right now, Railway Heights Market Hall is operating limited hours. The market hall is closed on Monday and Tuesday, open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
