WEST 7TH FARMER’S MARKET TO BEGIN FEBRUARY 4TH RUNS WEEKLY FROM 4-7PM

FORT WORTH – The West 7th Street area of Fort Worth, including the Cultural District, has previously lacked many options for access to fresh produce and other artisan goods.

Each week will feature local vendors serving fresh produce, eggs, meat, floral, jams, jellies, pickles, and other cottage goods items, along with a select assortment of artisan craft vendors. The selection of vendors is carefully chosen in order to complement the existing tenants at West 7th such as FW Market + Table that serves upscale pantry items along with ready-to-eat boxed meals. Additionally, WRARE sells candles and other home goods while Flirt Boutique and Reads Jewelers carry fine jewelry and casual jewelry options.

Every week, visitors can also expect to hear live music from local musicians or catch a chef-lead cooking demonstration. For the first event, the following vendors will be in attendance:

Ash Creek Farms – organic meat and eggs
Chef Evan – salted caramels
Coop 26 – free range eggs
Danette’s Urban Oasis – Dutchfarmstead Gouda Cheeses

Tillman’s Roadhouse in Fort Worth Transitions to Market + Table

Health Conscious Concept Brings Together Grab-and-Go, Café-Style Dining, and Gourmet Concepts

Dallas – September 10, 2015 – Todd Fiscus, co-owner of the popular Tillman’s Roadhouse restaurants, has announced that Tillman’s Fort Worth location will be wrapping up its run later this month to make way for a new concept. Market + Table, slated to open in early October, will bring together three dining/food concepts.

Fiscus shares, “Tillman’s has been a journey of sorts of top restaurants, appearances on The Chew, and continued “best of items” in Fort Worth. All the while, the dining arena has changed around us. So, it’s time for us to change. We need some fresh and clean eating around us, and offering a fine grocer element for the residences around us. This is what I want in my neighborhood.”

With Chef Kalen Morgenstern – best known from the reality cooking show Hell’s Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay and Top Chef Fort Worth – at the helm, Market + Table will include three distinct concepts – Market, The Living Room @ Market, and Table.

Opening early (7 a.m.) everyday and operating all day, Market serves as a “go to” place for grab-and-go, or stay-and-enjoy foods, while also offering an edited grocery assortment. Imagine coffees, juices, prepared salads, entrees, sandwiches, cheeses and more. Must-have pantry provisions, such as sugar, olive oil, etc., will also be sold.

The Living Room @ Market will serve craft cocktails, 16 local brews on tap, house-made juices, and barista-style coffees, while also featuring a menu for lunch or dinner filled with refreshing good, and good-for-you meals. With a beautiful terrace space, and interior seating, the Living Room @ Market is ideal for a light meal, a glass of wine, or a cheese board, in a comfortable, relaxing space.

The third concept, Table, will feature a 44-seat restaurant, with a separate entry from the street. The creative and expressive kitchen will allow Chef Morgenstern to try new and unique options, based on seasonality and creative preference. Designed as an immersive dining experience, diners can expect a regularly changing menu and market-fresh ingredients, with a dash of whimsy and imagination. Refined service in a casually elegant setting will be a hallmark. Table will be open Wednesday – Saturdays for dinner only.

“I am excited about this for several reasons. I love the new fresh interior design of the space. And I love that this will be the perfect place for a great glass of wine or maybe a fantastic meal that leaves you fulfilled. There’s a sense of ease about it all. I can’t wait.” says Fiscus enthusiastically.

Tillman’s Roadhouse in Fort Worth opened as one of the original tenants of Fort Worth’s West 7th Development in 2010. The last day of service will be Saturday, August 22, to make way for the new restaurant and market. Operations at Tillman’s Roadhouse in Bishop Arts will remain unchanged.

For further information, please contact Suzanne Droese at Droese Public Relations.

In honor of Art7’s opening, West 7th will be hosting three complimentary art events throughout the spring, culminating with its largest art celebration:

“pARTy on Crockett” – on Saturday, June 21.
