Perfect!!!!

WOW!! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Market Hall in May 2023, and we cannot say enough good things about them!!! The venue and the staff were absolutely incredible. From the sales director Kristen and the account manager Samantha to the bartending and catering staff- everyone was beyond amazing. We felt so special on our wedding day, because of how attentive, helpful, friendly, and kind everyone was.

Market Hall had EXCELLENT communication with us starting from the very first time we toured the venue. We really appreciated their email reminders/check-ins and communication throughout our planning process. We felt so supported! Management was always quick to return our e-mails anytime we had questions.

Obviously, the setting of Market Hall in City Market, across from Moore Square, is breathtaking- but the building, furniture provided, and details (beautiful string lighting inside as well as in the streets surrounding the venue) are gorgeous as well.

It was important to us to find a venue that had getting ready areas for both the bride AND the groom. Market Hall has 2 separate suites ON SITE, for both the bride and the groom. Not only do they provide space for getting ready- but they also provide drinks and lunch for the bridal parties before the event.

As for the food- WOW! They make the best shrimp & grits that I have ever had. We received SO many compliments from our guests who shared that Market Hall has the best wedding food they have ever had. They have unique and delicious food/appetizer offerings that aren't your "typical" basic wedding food offerings- they were all so amazing and memorable.

We have continued to receive compliments from friends and family who continue to share what a special and amazing experience they had here.

Thank you again to everyone at Market Hall!

Great venue

My daughter and her husband held their wedding and reception on the Park View side of Market Hall. Jessica and her staff did an amazing job. The set up and change over from wedding to reception was handled very quickly. All our guests loved the food and the service. The weather was perfect and we were able to take quite a few pictures in Moore Park across the street. There was another event on the Market View side, but it didn鈥檛 conflict with us in any way. I highly recommend this venue!

My team have worked over 20 events at Market Hall this year and it is one of our favorite Venues in Downtown Raleigh. It is a blank slate and brides get to come in and make it uniquely their own. Location is prime, right in the heart of downtown Raleigh, surrounded by Cobblestone streets. No better photo options around. The venue comes with tables and chairs, an on site manager, beautiful bridal suite and you have the flexibility of bringing in your own Caterer, all for a very reasonable fee for such a great location. The staff are knowledgeable, great customer service and response time, and are great team members to the wedding community. We highly endorse this Venue for weddings and events.
