Pullman Market Opens at Pearl in San Antonio on Tuesday, April 23

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (April 22, 2024) โ€“ The eagerly awaited Pullman Market, the brainchild of Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group, is set to open its doors at Pearl on Tuesday, April 23. Nestled within the heart of San Antonio, this culinary haven promises an immersive experience celebrating Texas cuisine and the rich tapestry of local agriculture. Boasting a specialty grocer, tortilleria, bakery, butcher, quick-service eateries, and more, Pullman Market aims to redefine the culinary landscape of the Southwest.

At the helm of this ambitious project is Kevin Fink, Partner at Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group, who envisions Pullman Market as a nexus of community, hospitality, and gastronomic excellence. “Pullman Market is the first project of its kind in San Antonio and the region,” Fink expresses. “We’re most excited about providing a space for guests to get a taste of the ideals that make this city great: community, hospitality, and high-quality food.”

Occupying a sprawling 40,000-square-foot space within the historic Samuels Glass Company headquarters at Pearl, Pullman Market pays homage to its industrial roots while embracing a modern, vibrant aesthetic. Designed by acclaimed Texas architecture firms Clayton Korte and Burton Baldridge, along with interior design firm Joel Mozersky Design, the market seamlessly marries historic charm with contemporary flair.

The market’s design ethos revolves around collaboration, with artisans and craftsmen playing an integral role in shaping the space. “Collaboration with bakers, butchers, baristas, chefs, and fishmongers was at the heart of the design process,” explains Sam Manning, Partner at Clayton Korte. “It is truly special to witness and learn from these craftspeople as they create their culinary masterpieces, a testament to the power of collaboration and the art of craftsmanship.”

Pullman Market celebrates the bounty of Texas, featuring over 150 local vendors supplying fresh produce, meat, cheese, wine, beer, and more. From the on-site tortilleria and sourdough bakery to the whole animal butcher, every corner of the market exudes an unparalleled dedication to quality and sustainability.

But Pullman Market is not merely a destination for procuring ingredientsโ€”it’s a culinary adventure waiting to unfold. Five casual to-go concepts offer a tantalizing array of burgers, tacos, ceviche, sandwiches, coffee, and ice cream, including flavors crafted by award-winning pastry chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph.

Furthermore, Pullman Market introduces four distinct restaurant concepts, two of which will debut on April 23: Fife & Farro and Mezquite. Fife & Farro, a family-friendly eatery, specializes in wood-fired sourdough pizza and handmade heritage grain pasta, while Mezquite tantalizes taste buds with the vibrant flavors of Sonora, Mexico, alongside a dedicated mezcal bar named Mezcaleria.

Led by Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group’s team of visionary partners, including Kevin Fink, Tavel Bristol-Joseph, Alicynn Fink, Berty Richter, and Rand Egbert, Pullman Market represents a culmination of years of dedication to culinary excellence and community engagement. Rooted in a commitment to quality, sustainability, and supporting local farmers and producers, Pullman Market epitomizes the ethos that has defined Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group’s esteemed restaurant concepts over the years.
