Pearl Announces Reopening of Its Farmers Market & Food Hall

Farmers Market and the Bottling Department will Reopen Starting in Early June as well as Continue its Curbside Online Market

Pearl continues its dedication to small businesses and farmers by updating its response to COVID-19 and announcing reopenings. Pearl Farmers Market will reopen on Saturdays only from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. starting on June 6. The Bottling Department, Pearl’s food hall, will reopen its dining room at 50% capacity beginning on June 9. The hours of operation for the Bottling Department restaurants and bar will be Tuesday through Sunday 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To accommodate the overwhelming response to curbside pickup in the wake of COVID-19, Pearl will also continue to offer its Farmers Market curbside service. Farmers Market Headquarters will be located next to Bike World in the former Can Recycling Building, located at 300 E. Grayson St., Suite 100. 

“Our local producers and farmers market team were able to quickly pivot in the wake of COVID-19. The overwhelming response to curbside pick-up has prompted us to invest in a new Farmers Market Headquarters that will enable us to continue this service alongside the careful reopening of the market to the public,” said Pearl’s Chief Marketing Officer Elizabeth Fauerso. “We are excited to continue to support our local producers and community with this new endeavor.”

Curbside pickup is available from 3 to 7 p.m. on Fridays and the pickup location will move to the Farmers Market Headquarters space starting on June 12 (the last pickup from the Pearl Stable will be on June 5). Upon arrival, guests can follow the signs to the curbside location and Pearl representatives will be on hand to deliver bags to vehicles.

The Farmers Market will serve as an open air grocery store. Seating and tables will remain removed to avoid congregating and eating or sampling in the market footprint will not be permitted.

Pearl Pledge 

Over the last ten years, Pearl, in partnership with our restaurants, shops, Hotel Emma, and the Culinary Institute of America, has become a place for San Antonio to gather. We come here to share a table over great food, to learn new things, to wander on the River, meet friends in the park, and to celebrate special traditions. Over the course of the extraordinary last few months, we—like neighborhoods across the world—have re-evaluated so many aspects of our lives and made dramatic adjustments in service to the health and wellbeing of our community. 

And now we face another challenge: beginning the delicate process of reopening while balancing the safety and health of our employees, visitors, and residents at Pearl. This process will be imperfect because there is no precedent for where we are. But we commit the following to you:

  •  We will be transparent
  •  We will listen to our community at large and our subject matter experts leading the way in response and reopening
  • We will work in concert with our partners here at Pearl and with leadership at the City of San Antonio and in compliance with the State’s Executive orders
  • We will seek best practices from communities around the world 

As we navigate this new reality, we seek our community’s partnership. Pearl supports all its partners and the decisions they make on when and how to reopen their businesses. To ensure that our community remains as safe as possible, the following pledge is in place:
