Good news for Union Market fans: The NoMa foodie destination will extend its hours starting on November 12. The collection of vendors will then be open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday.
The market has been growing steadily since it opened last September, adding new vendors and services. Managing development group Edens launched the Roadie in August, which brings patrons to the space during lunch hour via shuttle from surrounding areas. The first Tuesday that the market will be open includes a preview of more to come: New York-based chef John Mooney, who’s set to open a restaurant in the building, will be on the premises offering cooking demonstrations. Rappahannock Oyster Bar and the butchers of Harvey’s Market will also participate in demos. An opening date for the restaurant has yet to be set.
UPDATE 6 PM: A tweet from Union Market indicated that Toki Underground's ramen pop-up, which has been at the market since late October, would continue through January. But on Tuesday evening, Toki's Twitter feed announced that while it will maintain a presence at Union Market through the winter, the specifics are yet to be determined. We will update with new information when it becomes available.
