More than a half-dozen food vendors will move into Annapolis's historic Market House at City Dock, city officials announced Friday.
The vendors are: Yellowfin Seafood & Oyster Bar, a spinoff of the Yellowfin Steak and Fish House in Edgewater; the Hard Bean Café, which is moving from across the street; Carl's Corned Beef & Delicatessen and Midship Fresh Bar, also under Hard Bean's banner; Annapolis Organic Market and Good Life Smoothie Bar, both operated by Good Life Organic Market in Severna Park; Amsterdam Falafelshop, a Washington falafel shop; and Firenzes Gelateria, a dessert shop and former Market House tenant, officials said.
No date has been set for reopening the 1858 Market House, which has been closed more than it has been open in recent years. Last year, Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen said the building would reopen in October or he would "walk the plank" into the city's harbor. With the tentative reopening pushed back to this spring, Cohen said he would push back his plunge into the water as well.
Vendor leases expire at the end of 2017, running almost five years.
