SYRACUSE,N.Y. (NCC News) – This local food hall has a few months to go until they are open for business, but that hasn’t stopped them from serving food.
The Salt City Market has brought their business curbside, with Curbside Test Kitchen.
Marketing manager Adam Sudmann said this food hall is not a trend, this is something special.
“What it’s really trying to do is create a space where everybody in Syracuse feels like they have ownership and where they can come together and where they feel welcome,” Sudmann said.
Sudmann said this is more than a welcoming space.
“The other thing is building up entrepreneurs ..food entrepreneurs,” Sudmann said.
Sudmann said they had always had ideas for takeout pop-ups. They had a previous pop up last summer, Take-out Fridays, but one day just wasn’t enough.
“We had always intended on doing that but it got delayed and then this sort of curbside experience took over,” Sudmann said.
Sudmann said that if you’ve never been to Curbside Test Kitchen, this is how it works:
“Every week at ‘With Love’ restaurant on 435 North Salina St. we feature a new vendor that is essentially practicing to move on to a stall in Salt City Market,” Sudmann said.
The Curbside Test Kitchen only runs July until August. The food vendors share food culture from all over. This week’s vendor is Mamma Hai. Mamma Hai will have Vietnamese homestyle cooking.
“Her food is divine,” Sudmann said.
Sudmann said this is a hands- free curbside, where you will place your order online and they will bring it to you. There is also a QR code given with the food to give each vendor feedback.
