Following a slew of recent headlines–Anthony’s Bourdain’s food and retail market headed for the SuperPier, the mega-market coming to Essex Crossing that will be one of the largest in the world, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s seafood-themed food hall planned for the South Street Seaport–6sqft recently posed the question: Is the city’s food hall obsession about to burst? Though the votes were divided, the trend has shown no signs of slowing down, especially considering that it’s now making its way over to the often-forgotten borough of Staten Island, with perhaps the most gimmicky name we’ve heard yet.

Curbed reports that the team behind Gansevoort Market has partnered with Empire Outlets developers BFC Partners to open a locally curated food market by late 2017. Dubbed MRKTPL, the hall will span 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space that will “tie together the history of the New York Harbor with modern communal spaces to eat and gather,” as per the press release.
