Combine the convenience and flexibility of a food court with quality, local foods and you have a food hall! More than a grab-n-go meal while shopping, these places are destinations.

Located in the heart of Milwaukee's lively East Side, this food hall is home to local food vendors ranging from Egg & Flour Pasta Bar, with its fresh, made-to-order pasta, to Scratch Ice Cream.

A place of unrest has been transformed into a place of support and community in this North Side neighborhood.
