Over the past two years, the NC Triangle has added a bunch of food halls, ranging from Morgan Street Food Hall, Transfer Co. Food Hall along with Blue Dogwood Public Market. Recently, another entrant hit my radar screen: Old North State Food Hall! While it’s not officially in the Triangle, it will sit right outside of our area off of I-95, Exit 97 in Selma. Developed in 12,000 square feet at the old JR Cigar location, food vendor announcements are slowly coming out. The food hall will be anchored by the Longleaf Tavern for beer and drinks! Food vendors below, the Old North State Food Hall is now open officially!
