After years of anticipation and numerous delays, 3rd Street Market Hall (275 W. Wisconsin Ave.) is open! Is there still a lot of work to be done on the downtown food hall? Yep! Is it open anyway? Yep!

3rd Street Market Hall is located on the first floor of The Avenue—a.k.a. the old Shops of Grand Avenue. A host of vendors share the communal food space. The vendors open now include Dairyland (frozen custard and burgers), Mid-Way Bakery (sweets, soups, sandwiches), Hot Dish Pantry (comfort foods), Amano Pan (sourdough bread, pizza), and Strega (pasta). Milwaukee apparel company Brew City Brand, as well as a full bar, are also open. A complete list of vendors present and future can be found HERE. Oh, and there’s indoor bags, indoor shuffleboard, a full Topgolf Swing Suite, and a selfie museum, too.

Here’s what the rest of January looks like for 3rd Street:

And here are 23 pictures of the new food hall, topped off by one picture of the excellent burger I got from Dairyland:
