We don’t need another reason to visit the Historic Pearl, but the opening of a new market is always a great excuse.

Last year, we showed you renderings of the highly anticipated Pullman Market — brain child of Emmer & Rye Hospitality Group. Now that its doors are officially open, let’s dive into the largest culinary market in the Southwest.

Located in the former Samuels Glass Company headquarters at the Pearl, this 40,000-sqft brick warehouse includes:

  • A sourdough bakery
  • A grocer with 150 suppliers throughout Texas
  • A retail section with home + beauty goods, chef supplies, and toys
  • Five quick-service eateries serving burgers, tacos, ceviche, sandwiches, coffee, and ice cream
  • Four restaurants
  • An on-site tortilleria
  • An animal butcher

Out of the four restaurant concepts, two of them opened along with the market yesterday — Fife & Farro and Mezquite. The remaining two, Isidore and Nicosi, will open later this spring.

About the building

The Samuels Glass Company was founded by Lawrence Samuels in 1914, and its headquarters was designed by architect Bartlett Cocke in 1948. The family-operated business moved to a newer facility in 2017 (off of NE Interstate 410) due to an increase in development at the Historic Pearl.

The building’s original materials commemorate its history while providing a stunning contrast to the new elements. Preservation efforts also helped the project eliminate waste while staying true to the historic + cultural integrity of the structure.

Now the home of the Pullman Market, the building’s light-filled patios, vibrant atmosphere, and selection of locally sourced goods give visitors much to peruse.
