Transfer Co. Food Hall announces new tenants, expanded hours

May 2, 2019

Downtown Raleigh’s newest food court, Transfer Co. Food Hall, announced two new food tenants, more event space and extended hours on Thursday.

Alimentari at Left Bank and Mama Crow’s will soon be added to the diverse mix of Transfer’s existing food booths, which include Longleaf Swine, Bul Box, Locals Seafood, Burial Beer Co., Benchwarmer Bagels, Che Empanadas, Chhote’s, Captain Cookie and The Milkman and Dank Burrito, which just opened in April.

Alimentari at Left Bank will serve Italian classics, flatbreads and freshly-made pasta by the pound. It will also feature downtown Raleigh’s first whole-animal butchery and charcuterie shop, which will source its animals from local farms in Saxaphaw and Snow Camp.

Mama Crow’s will feature fresh, locally-sourced salads, burgers, house-made cheeses and hand-cut fries.

In addition to the food and beverage vendors, Transfer is home to Sweet Peas Urban Gardens, which grows and supplies nutrient-dense microgreens to local chefs, farmers’ markets and produce delivery services in the Triangle.

Transfer isn’t just adding more food to its mix -- it’s getting larger. According to Transfer, Asheville-based Burial Beer Co. will soon expand its current 670 sq. ft. space to 2,000 sq. ft. The art-filled space will remain intimate but allow for more guests, according to Transfer insiders.

Perhaps the largest of Transfer’s announcements is the addition of new coworking and event spaces. A rentable, 3,000 sq. ft. ballroom can be used for private events but will also provide space for community events like concerts and pop-up markets.

The final addition will be a 50-desk coworking space for startups and entrepreneurs to meet and collaborate.

Transfer Co. Food Hall is located at 500 E. Davie Street in downtown Raleigh. Effective May 7, new, expanded hours will be in place. Transfer will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
