Canalside is on a mission to attract more food vendors. A release has been issued that is calling out to area food vendors who might be interested in bringing their edible delights to the Inner Harbor. The release does not state any specifics regarding the types of venues that would be open for the sellers, but I’m guessing that this is a lighter, quicker, cheaper approach that the organization is taking (considering that there are no new buildings and space appears to be filled in existing buildings). But that doesn’t mean that temporary food installations can’t be set up, or even more permanent venues for the right operation (look at what Larkinville has managed to do in a relatively short period of time).
At this point, the food offerings at Canalside include Clinton’s Dish, Liberty Hound (now open for the season), and food trucks. As the popularity of the site continues to grow, there must be additional offerings available. I would like to throw out my suggestion of a clam and oyster shack, with outdoor grilling of corn on the cob. What else do we need down there? Your suggestion could prompt a seller to attend an upcoming informational meeting…
Canalside will host a meeting for food vendors interested in participating in 2014 Canalside events, on Thursday, April 17, at 3 p.m., at 95 Perry St., Buffalo, NY. The meeting will be held inside the 5th Floor Conference Room.
Participants will meet with Executive Chef Kate Elliott and other members of the Canalside management team. Various opportunities will be discussed on how Canalside and area food vendors may work more closely together. Micro-enterprises, as well as certified minority and women-owned businesses are encouraged to attend.
