Eater Gets the Scoop on Tastemakers' Collaborative Foodhall

"Veteran food truckers Kirk and Juliann Francis are just weeks away from opening the very brick-and-mortar Tastemakers, a combination food hall, commercial kitchen, bar, and retail space currently taking shape in Brookland."


WBJ breaks the news

"...an 8,000-square-foot warehouse at 2800 10th St. NE, about a half mile from the Brookland-CUA Metro station. The former mayonnaise factory is less than a block from the Right Proper Brewing Co. production facility... and has the 'unicorn combination' of proximity to Metro, three garage bays and onsite parking."
