A Stunning Food Hall is Coming to Downtown Wilmington!

Food Hall Wilmington DE

A Food Hall is on its way to the Historic DuPont Building and we couldn't be more excited! Not only will it provide entrepreneurial chefs with a place to launch their business idea...the space is gorgeous!

Everyone gets excited for lunchtime and in late 2018 it will be even better in Downtown Wilmington! DE.CO — short for Delaware Collective is on its way!

“Wilmington’s newly thriving food scene is reaching a turning point, and DE.CO’s convenient location at the heart of the dynamic mid-Atlantic makes it a magnet for culinary talent that will draw locals and visitors alike downtown,” says Seawall’s Peter DiPrinzio, who developed Baltimore’s wildly successful food hall, R. House. “DE.CO will feel like a lively restaurant and bar, and will serve as a gathering place throughout the day in into the night: for coffee with friends, a lunch meeting among co-workers, date night for couples or weekend brunch with the whole family.”

Check out these articles featuring coverage of the story.
