The Southern now has a next-door neighbor, as Southernaire Market, a grocery and butcher shop that will also double as a private event space, opened last Friday. Located at 150 3rd Avenue South in the bottom of the Pinnacle office tower, it's the latest project from Tom Morales, who's responsible for other downtown venues such as The Southern and Acme Feed and Seed.
Currently open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., the specialty grocer could help begin to fill a major void in the downtown market. It also features a butcher counter offering a selection of meats and seafood, coffee and craft beer by the bottle (and eventually by the growler). They also offer a small to-go menu of soups, salads and paninis.
