Last Weekend of Market Street Closure for Dining; City to Install Parklets for Restaurants

For the past several months, the City has been closing the two blocks of Market Street between Patrick and 2nd Street for outdoor dining as part of the Pop Up Dining program.  This weekend, Friday 10/30 to Sunday 11/1, marks the last weekend of in-street dining in that area.  In place of the street closures, the City will install temporary outdoor dining parklets for restaurants in the 99 and 100 blocks of North Market Street beginning Monday, November 2nd.  Please note that this work may affect Market Street travel as the parklet barriers are delivered and installed.   

The change to temporary parklets through the winter to October 2021 (or the end of the State of Emergency) is due to the shift in weather and operational costs of street closures.  This change impacts the following restaurants: Brewers Alley, Taco Daddy, Firestone (and Firestones Raw Bar), The Tasting Room, Isabellas, Cacique, and Tsunami. The City previously installed 18 parklets for other downtown restaurants on other blocks/streets. These will remain, and restauranteurs will be able to use the parklets 7 days per week during normal business hours. Other aspects of the Pop Up Dining program, such as parking lot usage, may continue throughout the City. 

Additionally, the City remains focused on making retail shopping as easy as possible for patrons.   The very popular "Curbside Pickup Spots" will continue through the winter to allow shoppers and restaurant patrons to call ahead and pick up food and retail goods.  The parking decks provide the first 30 minutes free to augment the Curbside Pickup Program.  Parking for longer holiday shopping is in the City’s five convenient parking garages.

Thank you to all in the community who continued to support our local businesses.  For questions, please contact the Department of Economic Development at 301-600-6360.
