Louisville's Urban Food Hall
In many ways, Louisville owes its existence to a stretch of rapids along the Ohio River known as the Falls of the Ohio. Located about a mile north of the city, these waterfalls impeded passage in the late 1700s, requiring travelers to stop and portage their canoes further downriver. As a result, several communities sprang up along this stopping point, most prominently Louisville, which earned the nickname Falls City.
Today, Falls City Market is central to the Louisville community. An open-air urban food hall, it features a mix of local groceries, restaurants, and shops. By transforming Liberty Street into a pedestrian thoroughfare, visitors and locals alike are drawn in by the scents of freshly brewed Heine Brothers’ coffee, baked bread, and fresh flowers.
With chef-driven grab-and-go offerings, individual culinary stations, conventional grocery items, an artisanal bakery, and a relaxing coffee and gelato corner for connoisseurs, this is the destination for all your culinary cravings and necessities.
Feed your curiosity and passion for food and more through a sumptuous selection of everything edible and otherwise – from street tacos to smoked barbeque, fresh crepes, and signature sushi, to local Louisville crafts and literature, fine wines and spirits, like small batch bourbons distilled right in Louisville.
