Playhouse Market is a creative collaboration of Executive Chef David Anderson and interior designer Dawn Hershko. “The idea for Playhouse Market was simple—combine good food, eclectic but warm furnishings, and local art and culture to create an environment where people would feel comfortable enough to sit and stay a while.”

They fulfilled that promise—and more.

This fine upscale food store includes an organic food market, a deli with Mediterranean-style food, an oyster bar with steamed shellfish, a pizzeria with wood-burning oven, a meat market with sensational steaks, a coffeeshop serving LaVazza coffee and a variety of great pastries baked fresh daily on-site, a juice bar and a large variety of freshly prepared food to take home or eat at the Market, restaurant style.

There are plenty of tables where you can sit and enjoy the food during the day and into the evening. At the handsome marble bar they serve fresh-pressed juices by day, and at night, pour some great boutique wines and craft beers from the large selection they have on tap.

At the oyster bar, they’ll shuck and serve whatever you pick; at the seafood and butcher counters, they’ll gladly cook up the day’s selections for you on-site, or pack it up for you to cook at home.
