4TH STREET MARKET GRAND RE-OPENING
SO CAL’S FIRST VIRTUAL FOOD HALL EXPERIENCE
Downtown Santa Ana’s cool food hall, 4th Street Market is celebrating its re-opening this Saturday with the Taste of 4SM, SoCal’s first virtual food hall experience from noon to 8pm.
Some of the exclusive items that will be available this Saturday, include a Boba Flight from Loose Leaf Boba Co, Birria Burritos courtesy of Burritos La Palma, and a charcuterie board from Electric City Butcher. Workshops will also be Iive streaming.
During the market’s temporary closure due to COVID19, some of 4SM’s vendors continued to serve take-out to the local community, while Founder Ryan Chase and team used the time to revamp the entire space.
From the interior walls, key signage and branding, to the award-winning patio, every element of 4SM has been touched and given new life. Those who visit will discover new photo-worthy garden walls, signage, graphic murals, idyllic seating and more. The entire 4SM family has worked diligently to create a new and improved reality for their business, and look forward to opening their doors to the public.
"We are excited about the revamp of the market,” said 4SM founder Ryan Chase. “It has been five years since we opened so we decided it was time to make some changes and freshen some things up. The area has grown a lot, both East End and Downtown as a whole, and so has the realm of food and retail, so we wanted to continue to transform with it. In addition, we are looking forward to the completion of 24 apartment units directly above 4th St Market, the proposed $100 million apartment project across the street, the East End Skatepark, the upcoming OC Streetcar, and many other community projects in the works."
Aside from being a family-friendly and ever-evolving dining destination, visiting 4SM provides its guests with a true urban experience. With one of the only four Stussy Archive stores in the U.S. right across the street, to The Frida Cinema (the only true independent theater in OC) just a few doors down, and dozens of murals throughout the area, this food hall is surrounded by culture and creativity.
In addition, guests can indulge in new flavors courtesy of five (5) unique eateries:
Burritos La Palma: MICHELIN Guide CA 2019 Bib Gourmand-awarded Mexican concept
Banh Xeo Boys: authentic Banh Xeo (Vietnamese crepes)
Loose Leaf Boba: fresh pressed teas, coffee and more
