Whether you say “Greer” or “Grrrr,” the historic downtown on the eastern border of Greenville County sure has been having a moment lately, and let us be the first to say, we are here for it. 👏

Last week on our social media accounts, we shared a photo of the City of Greer’s recently completed CenterG streetscape project in Greer Station that looks like something straight out of a movie set. We also shared with you a ~$32 million investment being made in a mixed-use development that will house 226 upscale apartments + a stand alone brewery at the corner of Jason and Cannon Streets.

Now, the latest news out of Greer is that we have Cartwright Food Hall to look forward to this fall. Partners Val + Elaine Kang and Ben + Caroline Godwin promise an “artisanal lifestyle dining concept” in the new space that will feature local eateries, restaurants, and food retailers. Some restaurants that have already signed up – Origami Donut, Trade Street Taproom, and Papi’s Tacos. (Know a local fav that you think would make the perfect fit? Tell them to apply to be a food vendor here.)

Renovations have begun on both a street-front building + connected carriage house at the food hall’s new spot at 215 Trade Street. The carriage house was built in 1904 and has been home to a livery, stables, restaurant, hardware store, gallery, and museum in the past 100+ years. Because of the carriage house’s history as a livery and stables, the owners came up with the name Cartwright – a historical term for “a maker of carts.”
