Cartwright Food Hall Announces Grand Opening

GREER, S.C. – Cartwright Food Hall is announcing the completion of their $2.7 million renovation of 215 Trade Street in downtown Greer, for Thursday, June 2 at 4:00 PM.

Cartwright Food Hall is an artisanal lifestyle dining location – not to be confused with a food court. It features six local eateries and restaurants: Empanada Shack, Flying Fox Coffee, Mi Irie on Trade, Mo Mo’s Sushi & More, Trade Street Taproom, and White Wine & Butter with a seventh and final vendor, Good Mood Treats, joining them in September 2022. Cartwright Food Hall features the concept of cross‑meal ordering, where different meals are enjoyed in a shared seating area.

Cartwright Food Hall has completed the remodel of both a street-front building and a carriage house built in 1904, which previously housed a livery, stables, restaurant, hardware store, gallery, and museum. With a history of a livery stable and carriage house, the name Cartwright, a historical term for “a maker of carts”, was born.

Co-owners Val and Elaine Kang stated, “We are so excited to open Cartwright Food Hall and be able to serve our community with many delicious food options and a wonderful family-friendly atmosphere!”

“It is a pleasure to welcome Cartwright Food Hall as one of the outstanding businesses in the City of Greer’s downtown” said City of Greer Mayor Rick Danner, “and I look forward to the opening of its unique venue and the exciting new dining options it brings to Greer Station.”

The remodel features 5,400 square feet at 215 Trade Street with elevator access and upstairs events space and seating for 84 and 1,200 square feet at the connected carriage house with outdoor seating in their backyard patio for 60. And to recall the historic roots of this building, which was first pictured in 1865, a two-story, indoor mural of a carriage, by local artist Adam Schrimmer, greets you as you enter from Trade Street.
