Chris joined Market Hall in 2018 and brought with him over 39 years of hospitality experience. As the son of an American father and a Vietnamese mother, Chris grew up in a two-cuisine household with boisterous gatherings at dinner time. From an early age he knew what he wanted to do, and after a stint in college, he hit the road with friends, perfecting his craft throughout the country. During this experience and in his upbringing, he was introduced to many different ingredients, textures and tastes. Chris has dedicated his time and efforts to cooking, sourcing out the premier ingredients and understanding the business of food. His favorite part of working at Market Hall is the history of the space and the team he gets to work with on a daily basis. Chris enjoys the variety of each event and the opportunity to play a vital role in a client’s big day.

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.
One of our favorite hip downtown venues! These folks are great to work with, the space is completely flexible and can become anything you envision.
I have been to several events in the venue. The staff is easy to work with and very accommodating.
