A Midtown market that served as a mini food hall has closed its doors.
Caravaca Market shuttered at 782 Peachtree St. after just less than two years, What Now Atlanta first reported and owner Harry Pagancoss confirmed to the AJC.
The 6,000 square-foot space featured a seasonal "taste bar," a wine bar that also sold charcuterie and cheeses, a beer and pizza bar, Provisions Market, "Harry Bakes" bakery and an outdoor patio.
Pagancoss released a statement to the AJC regarding the closure:
We tried a concept that has been proven in many cities, both in USA and around the world; most recently at Hudson Yards in NYC and in many cities like Lisbon, Madrid and even Miami. Unfortunately, after almost two years of trying, it simply did not resonate with the Midtown Atlanta public.
Caravaca Market took its name from Caravaca de la Cruz, a city in southern Spain. The venture was inspired by Pagancoss’ travels around the globe in search of food as the host for Latin American travelogue “GPS: Guided by Flavors” and as a presenter of shows for Univision, Telemundo and Mexican Media company TV Azteca. Pagancoss is a native of Puerto Rico who most recently resided in Miami before making Georgia his home more than five years ago.
He has also been involved in several other metro Atlanta restaurants including City Tavern in Kennesaw and Sivas Xpress.
