Oshawa is getting a brand new food hall with seven vendors under one roof, and it’s opening this month.

Market at 70 King is a new foodie haven in the Durham region that comes complete with a patio, speakeasy bar, pop-up vendors and community events. At the hall, you’ll be able to chow down on sushi, pasta, bao, salads, Polish street food, ice cream and fried chicken.

The interior of Market at 70 King has an elegant feel with large arched windows, a skylight, banquette seating and a venue space for events and pop-ups, all underscored by nods to the space’s history.

70 King’s origins stretch back to 1929, when the space was first opened as Genosha Hotel. The hotel established itself as a community hub hosting celebrations of all stripes as well as concerts with high profile acts like Rush. From 1950 to 1992, the hotel was rebranded several times, before its doors would close for around two decades starting in 2003. The transformation of 70 King began in 2017 with the old hotel converted into 86 luxury suites, and now the address is home to Market at 70 King.

The vendors at Market at 70 King are Bao Mama, Sushi Again, Gabe + Pancha’s, Philipp’n Italian, Tastoria Kitchen, Zaps Polish Street Food, Church’s Chicken and Lobby Bar.

Bao Mama serves bao with options like birria bao and crispy pata bao, Sushi Again serves jumbo hand rolls, rice paper rolls, inari pockets and poke bowls, and Gabe + Pancha’s s deals in ice cream, baked goods and coffee.

Philipp’n Italian combines Italian and Filipino influences with options like build-your-own pasta, milkfish risotto and ube tiramisu, and Tastoria Kitchen serves up plant-centric bowls, wraps and build-your-own salads. Zaps Polish Street Food serves savoury zapiekanka or “zaps” along with schnitzel and Polish sausage. The Lobby Bar is a speakeasy-style bar serving cocktails, wine and local beer on tap.

Market at 70 King will be having a grand opening with live music and raffles on July 19.
