Chelsea Market (Website) the uber-famous New York City food hall, is looking to open new locations outside of the Big Apple by the end of the year.

Jamestown (Website), the real estate company behind the Market, just sold the building to Google for $2.4 billion but kept the branding rights and is looking to open one or two new locations.

Jamestown told the Wall Street Journal that they were looking at “emerging neighborhoods in Europe and the U.S.” late last week. Read their full report HERE if you’re a subscriber.

Chelsea Market is located in Manhattan’ Meatpacking Ditrict and houses more than thirty five vendors that attract over six million visitors from around the world.

Bring it to Orlando.

Two of Orlando’s largest upcoming developments, the Packing District and Creative Village, are rumored to be building their own food hall projects. Or even the long-vacant, historic 1 N. Orange building in the heart of Downtown Orlando. Why not simply hand over the land to the company that broke the mold?
