Old Town Urban Market To Bring Food Hall Experience To Historic San Diego Neighborhood

April 20, 2021

Taking over the longtime Miranda's Courtyard space in the heart of San Diego's historic Old Town neighborhood is Old Town Urban Market, a mostly-outdoor food hall and shopping destination set to unveil this summer.

Old Town Urban Market will be a combined retail area, event space and dining destination. Anticipated to open as early as July, the business will include a variety of curated boutiques, food vendors, and an onsite wine bar. The outdoor area is currently being designed to include several large scale murals, including a portrait of Frida Kahlo painted by Guillermo "Memuco" Munro on the wall enclosing the space.   

"We wanted to provide a space where families, friends, visitors, and locals can enjoy Old Town in a whole new way," explained Old Town Urban Market operations manager Shannen El-Qasem. "We are bringing a variety of food, shops and entertainment all to one place. It’s been a long time since Old Town had something new to look forward to. We are keeping the spirit of Old Town alive with modern touches, as well as plenty of outdoor seating, a cozy and loungey feel for the wine bar, and a nice flow of outdoor space."

Initial food offerings at Old Town Urban Market will include street tacos, brick oven pizza, wine, beer, coffee, pastries, gelato and more to be announced as the opening nears. The space will also offer frequent live entertainment and hopes to introduce unique events once fully operational. 

Old Town Urban Market aims to open on July 1 at 2548 Congress Street in San Diego's Old Town. For more information, visit oturbanmarket.com.
