About Market Hall

Market Hall is an industrial chic wedding and events venue located in the Historic City Market of downtown Raleigh, North Carolina directly across from Moore's Square Park. Built in 1914, it was the city's first Farmer's Market! We honor that history with our in house chef inspired menu sourcing locally grown produce and ingredients. The space offers a blend of modern elegance with exposed brick, metal beams, raw wood, black chiavari chairs, market lights and cobblestone streets. Market Hall offers two different event spaces after acquiring 214 Martin Street, now called Park View at Market Hall.

History

City Market, a collection of shops and restaurants, flourished from 1914 to the mid-1940s. Here, farmers from eastern North Carolina sold produce, poultry, seafood and home-baked goods. However, as supermarkets moved into the area, the old City Market closed in 1957 and turned into a furniture store in 1959. By 1980, the City Council decided to rehabilitate the Market and surrounding buildings. Joe Hakan and his son, Michael, bought and renovated the Market in the 1990s, allowing the space to come to life again. Ever since it has operated as catering, restaurant and event space.

    Extremely flexible, affordable, and beautiful historic venue

    We booked Market Hall a while before the wedding and when we booked they were going through a leadership transition but they handled it very well. There was plenty of opportunity for new owners and new rules to disregard our previous agreements but they went over and above to accommodate what we had already been promised and then some. Great bridal showcases and open houses although we won a free uplighting at one of the showcases that they ended up forgetting to put in place the day of the wedding. Shoutout to Jayne for being accommodating and awesome. Food was excellent, literally the best chicken ever (so says my husband and many of the guests although I'm a vegetarian - which they were also did extremely well with the vegetarian curry option). Updated amenities like great bathrooms and awesome bridal suite looked great, fresh paint on the ceilings and interior and extremely great location for a downtown wedding.

    Best Day Ever!

    We rented both the Park View and the Market View for our daughter’s wedding reception of 216 people on August 17, 2019. Our guests of all ages absolutely LOVED the venue and everyone enjoyed the freedom to flow between both rooms. The food and drinks were exceptional (everyone raved about the salmon and whipped potatoes), the service could not have been better, and the market lights and decor elevated the atmosphere to be celebratory, special, and free-flowing.

    Downtown Raleigh happened to be extremely busy the day of our reception. There were activities in Moore Park right across the street and a local restaurant/bar hosted a festival with live music near Market Hall. We were very concerned that the noise and activity from these events would be a distraction to the reception. Pete and Jayne from Market Hall and our DJ (Randy Bennett from Bunn DJ Company) did a remarkable job of protecting us from the outside noise. All of them understood the importance of this day in the life of our family and they made sure that our day was memorable for all the right reasons. Their attention to detail and problem solving skills helped make our event successful!

    We believe this is the premier downtown venue to showcase any event for people of all ages! Bravo Market Hall!! We give them the highest recommendation!!

  • Sally Oakley Weddings & Events Wedding Planners

    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.

  • Watkins Flowers of Distinction Wedding Florists

    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.

  • A Red Carpet Affair, LLC Wedding Planners
