A new food hall and market at the Gibson Mill redevelopment in Concord has announced its newest tenants ahead of its upcoming opening.

  • Cara’s Cookie Co., a locally owned cookie maker benefiting the local nonprofit Cara’s Purpose. Jennifer Hamilton, whose baby Cara died of a brain tumor, founded and runs both organizations.
  • Taco Street, a new street taco spot from the team behind the Mexican restaurant Mexicasa in Harrisburg.

These two join a growing list of other tenants, which opened in July (except for Luck Factory, which opens at the end of August):

  • High Branch Brewing, a family-owned craft brewery currently located at Gibson Mill, will move to the Gibson Mill Market space. It’ll open this summer.
  • Defined Coffee, a Huntersville-based coffee brand with two other locations in the region.
  • Johnny Rogers BBQ, the popular barbecue and burger restaurant, opens at the Market this fall.
  • The Market Bar will be led by Cabarrus Brewing’s Steve Steinbacher.
  • Luck Factory Games, a board game and entertainment destination with a library of over 1,000 games.

The big picture: The market is the latest development project at the 100-year-old former textile mill. It’ll house food hall style dining and shopping similar to Charlotte’s Optimist Hall, but on a smaller scale.

  • The “locally sourced” food hall sits on 17,000 square feet with room for 10-12 vendors and a full-service restaurant.

Background: Gibson Mill is the former Gibson Manufacturing Company, which opened in 1899. Now, Gibson Mill averages about 1,000 visitors each day. It houses a variety of tenants, including the largest antique mall in the south.


Here are a few renderings and construction pictures of the future Gibson Mill Market.
